Steve Judd just told me about Boomerang for Gmail last night. This morning it showed up as a sponsored post on my Facebook News Feed. Despite that creepiness, you might want to check out Boomerang if you are struggling to manage your Gmail. - Posted by Bob Bertsch

By scheduling email for the next day, you can ward off the appearance of working late into the night. I regularly use Boomerang.

"Assume every card in your wallet is compromised, and proceed accordingly." Paper shows that anonymous credit card data can be used to identify individuals' transactions. #netlit - posted by Bob Bertsch

In the #netlit  community, +Jeff Piestrak shared a link (http://metaliteracy.cdlprojects.com/index.html)  to the Metaliteracy MOOC site, which is a project of the State University of New York. The course is being offered right now via Coursera!

I would say that there use of the word Metaliteracy reflects the same idea as the Network Literacy, which we use.

Story
Tagline
Helping professionals use online technologies to enhance communications, sharing and learning.
Introduction
The Network Literacy Community of Practice aims to build a community around learning in online networked environments. This community will use available/emerging networks, technology, and information to form the community and engage others; we will will also create scholarly resources on the use of online communication networks for a community of interest. The Network Literacy CoP will pursue information about new technologies, new ways of learning, new ways of working, and innovative approaches on the Internet, and trends around technology use for teaching and learning.

As part of the broader eXtension Initiative, the CoP is particularly focused on working with Extension and Military Family Service Professionals.
