Wow. One whiny post making excuses for my pathetic output and I get a nice whack of supportive comments and emails for my self-indulgent troubles. Slight embarrassment aside, sincere thanks to everyone for the kind thoughts — I could never give up weblogging, no matter how I plumb the depths of anxious self-regard, I would miss you all way too much.
Thankfully, others are kicking out the ed tech jams in a big way (interestingly, a lot of the same people who took the time to buck me up)… even when I’m not posting I’m glued to my aggregator, and my respect and admiration for my distributed peer group grows and grows. There’s an unmistakable energy out in the community right now, and I feel sorry for the people in our field who have yet to jack into it.
