I can’t imagine 2 courses… #netjourno
scmccarty

@Monyka ur nuts #netjourno
netjourno
July 27, 2011
In our submission, do you want separate links to each entry? #netjourno
susannabarbee
July 27, 2011
I’m really enjoying it too. But I think it would have been wise not to take two courses this term #netjourno
Monyka
July 27, 2011
@netjourno. Nope – my questions have been answered. #netjourno

@mdonnelly15 Think ‘extension of News Summary’ assignment… condensing to tweet format. Or revisit the link abt ‘Bloomsday’ #netjourno
netjourno
July 27, 2011
@mdonnelly15 oh me too #netjourno
LisaCharland
July 27, 2011

July 27, 2011
@scmccarty do you have kids? I can’t imagine doing these classes with kids. I have a lot of respect for those who do! #netjourno

not good for news reporting at all…i need better time management #netjourno
scmccarty
July 27, 2011
@Monyka Yup, you found a crumb. You can ignore that (unless u really want to blog there). #netjourno
netjourno
July 27, 2011
@netjourno. I have to say that I’m having a hard time taking a story and breaking it down into tweets – but I’m getting there. #netjourno
mdonnelly15
July 27, 2011
@netjourno Maybe I misunderstood syllabus but I thought we were to blog about Journo class there. Srry, please clarify #netjourno

I feel I’m always a day late and dollar short, I’m just about to do session 8! I end up doing it latenight with a quiet house… #netjourno

@netjourno with no wi-fi… the horror #netjourno
LisaCharland
July 27, 2011
@Monyka Why? Did u find a ‘class crumb’ about posting there that I missed? Class posted assignments there before. Got cumbersome. #netjourno

scmccarty
July 27, 2011
@LisaCharland Perhaps. Seems their customers are mostly HR departments and private investigators. #netjourno
netjourno
July 27, 2011
Do you think a company like Social Intelligence will offer you the option to delete stuff for a price? #netjourno
LisaCharland
July 27, 2011
@netjourno no I use it via Google Chrome. I love their apps. when they work #netjourno

@Rastbe Get used to it. Evrythng u do online is kept for eternity. even if u think you deleted, it might be preserved somewhere. #netjourno

I do enjoy it – I’m starting to spend a lot of time on it. #netjourno
