@iSwifter1 can you point me to any articles comparing the flash website performance of iSwifter vs Puffin for iPad? What R the differences?
@theroverapp I noticed your Rover iPad browser app blocks Webkinz & Club Penguin. Any way users can whitelist those sites!
@JMGubbins excellent! :-)
@JMGubbins ok thanks :-)
@jenwagner what percent of your sales have come from Apple’s iBookstore & how much from Lulu directly?
@JMGubbins the psychology of ebook pricing & buying is challenging to figure out. Since I’m self-publishing I have more freedom in pricing
@JMGubbins you think I should stick with $10/$15 or go w $5/$7.50? I am going to offer bulk pricing discounts again.
@JMGubbins what ebook pricing suggestions / models / exemplars for similar projects do you have / know about it?
@JMGubbins I’d like to price it so it can be widely read… I think the Common Core focus will make it much more relevant for PD now
@JMGubbins thanks so much! I’d love your input on ebook pricing. Instead of $10 std / $15 for enhanced iPad I’m thinking $5 / $7.50
@andthatrhymeswi I agree idealistically, but I think the analogies to the music industry ring true. Disintermediation is threatening $$$
@JMGubbins I’ve been working on it for a year but finally getting it into a narrative form. Very excited to share it!
@JMGubbins excellent! It’s coming along…

hadleyjf Google Docs Research tool is fabulous! Drag in an image, and it creates the citation! Love it!
I really like Facebook’s timline “year in review” feature. It’s a lot like a digital portfolio for school should work wfryer.me/297
@wmchamberlain that’s certainly an option I’ll consider :-)

I would like to share badges on my websites/blogs that show my support for both public education & public libraries. How should I do this?
@thatcamp Are you going to be offering a THAT Camp anytime in 2013 in the midwest of the USA?
@cynicdavid We had to remove snow from the VERY small ice rink in Kansas where I learned to skate & play hockey in HS.
@JMGubbins I created that site after I published Playing with Media, so the URL isn’t well advertised / shared at this point
@dougadamslotr Absolutely! I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Thanks so much for using social media to respond to fan questions :-)

@mrmosesdotorg thanks so much for that link!!! Wow.
@daviottenheimer and howdy to you Davi! I hope your 2013 is great - keep up the gr8 posts too. You are the smartest white hat I know! :-)
@jsprfox thanks for the feedback on that post - heartfelt encouragement to be sure :-)
@DougAdamsLOTR I wish they had fleshed out more verses, even tho the weren’t used in the film. It’s a powerful start to the song!
@edgevolt thanks for that update & info. Bummer. Have you found an alternative way to post to G+ from Twitter?
@DMaxMJ I signed it :-)
@cynicdavid well that is true but the context of that video was at an ice skating rink. Very odd not to remove snow from the rink at all!

@Mystika yes - definitely not a simple plot or basic themes!
@coachjttrammell that would be a good hashtag to add as well! :-)
I’ve made good headway yesterday & today on the intro chapter for my new “Mapping Media to the Common Core” ebook #fb
@LisaOKC OK I will! :-)
@ucdjoe If you know of other GeoMap student project examples online please let me know :-)
@DougAdamsLOTR Can you provide any insights into why a longer version of “The Misty Mountains” wasn’t recorded / published? I LOVE that song
@_briank_ Thank YOU for an outstanding & challenging article.
It kills me Howard Shore didn’t publish a longer version of “Misty Mountains” in @TheHobbitMovie soundtrack. I LOVE this song & want more!
@baldmisery I love your Twitter profile pic, btw. We just finished the 2nd half of a 6 movie Star Wars marathon this evening at our house
@baldmisery It seems like it should provide some good opportunities for conversations about a lot of issues, including faith
@baldmisery OK, I’m glad to hear some positive about it. I only know a little & my wife just watched a few initial episodes
@khrista_lou Our myopic focus on high stakes testing/accountability in public ed is destructive in so many ways. It needs to end
@khrista_lou We need a political movement in Oklahoma to offer an alternative vision for education reform besides the status quo
As I’m learning more about the TV series Supernatural wfryer.me/28g which my 14 yr old currently loves, I’m becoming rather concerned
@lparren Do you mean embedded ads on the YouTube screencast or in the actual ePUB you download & open in an eReader or eReading app?
EOEastland As public educators, we better be prepared to articulate and defend our practices - to let others in on the ART and science.
@iObservation excellent - thanks!
edtechworkshop working on my online portfolio. What are your “musts” for inclusion in a teacher’s site?
@SpaceCenterHou When do you expect to publish your schedule for summer 2013 camps for kids?
@brandtschneider YouTube is like the paper & pencil of the 21st century, only FAR more powerful. It’s protean: serving many purposes
@brandtschneider …impact on YouTube. From what I know, it’s pretty rare for a YouTuber to get over a million video views
@brandtschneider Well I wasn’t “grading” that student as a teacher… In reporting views for some of his videos, I wanted to highlight his..
@brandtschneider Google/YouTube has pretty amazing view metrics, including exactly how long people watch your videos.
@brandtschneider …pure narcissism at worst I think.
@brandtschneider There is a lot of potential to use social media clout for good purposes, but simply getting people to “look at me” is…
@brandtschneider Perhaps in a university/undergrad PR or journalism program class assignment I could see doing that, but not in K12
@brandtschneider In a K-12 classroom context I don’t think I’d ever advocate for assigning grades based on YouTube views for an assignment
@brandtschneider How would you measure ‘success’ in the context of YouTube video producers?
@brandtschneider …an audience standpoint. YouTubers define ‘success’ in different ways, but views are probably a common success metric
@brandtschneider …certainly have value, both from a monetary/advertising standpoint & from a digital footprint / make an impact / reach…
@brandtschneider thanks for your comments. I suppose that depends entirely how one defines success. In an attention economy YouTube views…

@iJoshmika do you prefer NoodleTools over Zotero?
@LearningTimes Have you released your WordPress badge plugin yet with BadgeStack?
Light snow started falling in OKC about 10:30 this morning. Our 9 year old is beside herself with pure JOY: White Christmas! :-)
@cstanley great, thanks!
