The old time alchemists did not work in pure isolation; digital ones rarely do. We talk and share.
For this current iteration of this course we are running several Twitter chats that are open to anyone interested to participate and tweet along. Some of these may be done in class together, others may take place at other times. And because we have a time zone challenge between New Jersey and Norway, our twitter chats are planned to be both synchronous (if you can) and asynchronous (if you can later).
We will not fiddle with any special tools or special hashtags; if you want to join along, look for announcements here or via @netnarr. Reply, build on ideas, offer resources and please tag anything
#netnarr. The format will be fairly simple, an introductory tweet, followed by 2-4 questions. Reply as you wish.
Some of our students will be tasked with providing an archive/summary of the chat, see below for some tips.

Alchemy for Tweet Curation
For those taking on the curation of these events, please publish a blog post, and tweet a link to @netnarr so we can add it to the event page. You do not have to include every tweet, just ones you feel are relevant.
If you are using WordPress, its very easy to embed any tweets into a post, by copying it’s individual URL (linked from the time/date stamp), and pasting it in your post editor on a blank line. Watch the magic. So you can write a post with embedded tweets in it, add some commentary, and call it a a day.
