At the National eXtension Conference (#nexconf) next week, Network Literacy CoP members will be wearing Ask Me badges. If you've got questions about online networks or social media, we'd love to try to answer them. Even better would be if you'd share something your excited about - we're there to learn!

If you've enjoyed some of the amazing footage from the Olympics this year, chances are you might have a remote controlled drone to thank for it.

While the USA lags behind in regards to allowing drones commercially, other countries do not have these limitations. Hopefully proposed changes to these regulations will help show the general public that these amazing tools can benefit us all.

I still listen to the original TWiT and find it useful for keeping up with technology news. I need to get back to listening to http://thefutureandyou.com . I found it thought provoking. I listen to almost every cast at 1.5 speed, and many books at a faster rate. Thanks for sharing your list.

Different way of thinking about using clickers for research in addition to teaching.

Way cool NY Times article about citizen science and crowdsourcing research information about bird migrations. Any Extension peers interested in a citizen science project? It could fit many of our existing volunteer programs.
