OK - This is fun! Thanks to Rachel I learned how to set up a page and link pages to pages. If it's not obvious, I set up two new pages at the beginning of the sidebar and organized the sidebar for those wanting to participate via Twitter and those wanting to be engaged in the research. Hopefully this will be one avenue (among others) to help those wanting to Twitter to do so without getting lost in our research stuff. This will supplement the webinar and the handout. Also, the Community Weaver page is a place to start to outline who is Twittering on-site and virtually per session at the Conference. Enjoy. Jeff

front page is looking very action-oriented and inviting for the newbies to the project and the twitterers. i'll get anna feedback on what looks like a great youtube.

anna, could you also copy your video to the front page here and the how to i participate via twitter page. it seems like our primary enabling tool right now and should be very very visible and maybe even asking peter to send to all odn members via an email update.

I just realized that updating this site made your video obsolete, Anna! I loved it too!!

WOW! The transformation of the front page is wonderful. I want to share with all the attached link about how a communicators conference is using the metaphor of "gorillas" like our bird/flocking metaphor to increase engagement. Later today I might play around to incorporate more bird/flocking type language: flight pattern, nesting, soaring, sky-diving, birds-eye-view, feeling like a bird-brain, doves and hawks and vultures oh my, etc. Check out the gorilla stuff:

Hi Anna,

I love the intro video on how to join the flock via Twitter. I like that it's on the home page (nest) prominently. Did you do this unedited and if so, remarkable!!! I like that you first walk the birds of a feather through the action pages. I really like that you get the flock to Juliette's twitter site quickly. I like how you spell out Monitter. I'm now going to look at the how to use Twitter video since I'm still weak at that. I wanted to copy your video to my Packard colleagues on an internal chat room, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Finally, your subtle accent is charming and working internationally, I highly value how accents force us to listen more closely - an often overlooked benefit of diversity.

i read the rolodex copy and looked at flocking for more. i think the outline in progress and rolodex have segments of content that will work in the practitioner article. i suggest people keep writing out what they think might have value. we keep up with what comes in, then after we get into 2010 we talk through what we have and try to produce a first draft outline. i'll cgecjuing my email while i'm on the road. talk to ya in 2010. ed esbeck and happy holidays to all.
