I am also the Emerging Technologies Chair for ISTE, the author of "Educational Networking: The Important Role Web 2.0 Will Play in Education," the recipient of the 2010 Technology in Learning Leadership Award (CUE), and a blogger at I have consulted for PBS, Intel, Ning, Microsoft, KnowledgeWorks Foundation, CoSN, MERLOT, the U.S. State Department, and others on educational technology and specifically on social networking.

My wife and I have four children.
I was so impressed with the Library 2.0 social network on Ning that I started one for educators at Classroom 2.0.

Great stuff. A great way for educators to begin to explore the conversations that take place in the read/write web.

Yes, it's sad. Unfortunately lack of staff to maintain the sites lead to these type of situations. At least, now we know they no longer exist.

Thanks a lot!

I think that might be a great idea -- I know a number of library school students who used the site with great success, though I also know that personal website building is often a component of the MLIS curriculum. Still, it might be especially useful for those established in the field and looking for new ventures!

Thanks for the Weebly compliment, Steve!  I had a lot of fun putting the site together and would recommend it to anyone looking to establish an easy, personalized web presence -- especially those on the job hunt!
