This is just a very quick update. Having sorted out my computer problems (fingers crossed and touch wood), reinstalled loads of software and (hopefully) not lost any data, I'm now almost ready to start writing again.
After I've done a mega backup, installed Tweetdeck and actually gone out to earn a crust, I will be back with some new articles.
In the meantime, take a look at this report by Patrick Hadfield on the 140 Meetup panel discussion I took part in last week. Some very interesting issues were raised, from a wide variety of people (mostly from outside the education profession).
