I’m test-driving another blog app housed by the Athabasca University Landing, a social network for AU personnel and students. Here’s the first post, an icebreaker assignment for a course on social media and pedagogy that started today.

I am envisioning less infinitely-regressing self-reflexive uses for these apps. Honest.
