Halloween and Me: A Mini Pity Party

Okay folks, it’s Thursday and I still haven’t had time to buy a Halloween costume for my daughter. Needless to say, we’re both panicked! Will there be any costumes left?

What’s Wrong With Twitter?

WIRED magazine writer, Clive Thompson, is reporting how "Twitter is the app that everyone loves to hate." (Thanks to Michael Dean. for the heads up) How could anyone HATE Twitter? Most of my educational technology resources come via my Twitter friends.
