Howdy folks! I'm an Instructional Designer at UT Dallas. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Angelo State University and a Master's in Computer Education and Cognitive Systems from the University of North Texas. I've been working in edtech for 11 years. Hmm... what else? I'm a *huge* fan of that little Irish band called U2, and I'm a bigtime Firefly/Serenity advocate.

    If there is a social networking god out there — please, let Google win. ;)

    There was recently an announcement on Facebook that members’ profiles would soon be searchable on Google. I wonder if Facebook and Google have been working together on that?

    Unfortunately….. Microsoft won. Google lost. What idiot allowed that to happen should be drawn and quartered. Oh, well. Facebook was good while it lasted. Microsoft will probably kill that. At least Yahoo didn’t win….. that would have been the worst.

    Interesting. Microsoft got a much smaller percentage than had originally been discussed. And a much smaller price tag than people were speculating on. Welp, Google can’t win them all, I guess. I’m very surprised.
