Congrats NJ!
A man walks up to a computer, points to the keyboard, and says, “How come the keys aren’t in alphabetical order?”

Well, it may be the punch line of a joke, but it’s the unfortunate reality for many technologically illiterate Americans who find themselves suddenly unemployed during these tough economic times. Frankly, those who have never encountered a keyboard are ill-equipped to start searching and applying for jobs online without a cost-free crash course in computer skills.

Shall we note that Twitter seems to be failing today? Is it dying under the weight of the tweets passing though it?

Outstanding blog post from Peter Murray.
Thursday Threads: Looking Backwards and Looking Forwards

As the last DLTJ Thursday Threads of the year, the stories in this post look back to what we saw in 2011 and look forward to what we may see in 2012. Looking backwards is a list of five things we learned about publishing from O’Reilly Media and Google’s 3-minute Zeitgeist video. Looking forward are a list of predictions from Fast Company and from the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts in the UK. At this high point when 2011 is slowing and we start down the hill of 2012, I wish you a happy and prosperous new year.

Two students used http://www.symbaloo.com/ on Thursday night. Anybody seriously using this to make access to web tools easier?
