ok I am not happy just lost an hours work on a blog post that I had been meticulously saving periodically :>
http://www.squarespace.com/ would have to be the worst blogging platform I have ever used, it has caused us no end of dramas ever since we went on our trip, the interface is unintutive, it's cluncky to use as I just found out you can loose everthing in an instant. It's mobile client sucks, we rang them in the US while we were away and they admitted that you have to use it in a desktop web browser to get full functionality.
If you ever are considering a blogging platform, do not use squarespace wordrpress is 100 time better and is free. We will cancel our subscription and revert back.

Disruptive technologies are all well and good, but being totally out of touch with what people actually want may not be the best innovation strategy.

We have been using wikispaces since 2007 at Sydney TAFE, been a great product in the edu space, I can't remember a time when it was down and they have been very responsive. An interesting and rare example of a Silicon Valley startup in the edu space. Bet it did not sell for as much as WhatsApp, still interesting it was purchased by a professional teachers social networking service

Introduction
I work as the Manager Learning and Innovation, Workforce Development @ TAFE NSW - Sydney Institute. I have been involved with eLearning within TAFE NSW for around 12 years, responsible for the development, maintenance and delivery of a wide range of online resources, delivering staff professional development and providing support for teaching & learning online.

Since 2005 I have been exploring the use of emerging technologies such as social software, social networking etc. in the context of networked teaching and learning communities. I have been an avid podcaster since 2005 and am currently syndicating at TalkingVTE and myLearning.
