I'd Like To Thank My Producers, Mom & Dad (& SXSW)

So, how cool is this?

First, a little history: I got this idea to start a Twitter network. Lots of educational Twitter users joined in (72 to date). I've received lots of great feedback from members of this network and personally I've found it to be very helpful, especially now as I'm planning a presentation for a conference breakout session on using in the classroom. I'm especially excited to showcase losikinfotech's bookmarks on Animal Research and how he uses them with his class (twitter @mrlosik).

In a follow-up post, I encouraged others outside our Twitter edtech network to join and today, Paul Terry Walhus (twitter @springnet) contacted me because he not only wanted to duplicate the concept for his SXSW network but he wanted to interview me (ME!, can you believe it?) for his series of videos. It was my first experience being interviewed using Skype, and by someone I never really but just "met," on Twitter. How cool is that?

So, I thought I would share this ever evolving networking thing with you as it continues to grow and take on a life of its own. How fun! Click to play the video. It is about 5 minutes long. As always, I'd appreciate your comments. ~ Lee

Thanks Lee,
I loved the interview, especially since I had missed the original tweet about the network on delicous. For those of us just starting out, trying to understand twitter, this was a great example of the power of networking.
