Thank you for mentioning my post in your critique of the filtering that 8e6 technologies is doing right now. I agree that many of our Technology Directors are more concerned with filtering the content, rather than preserving the resources. There is so much more to social software than the content. They are ways of huddling around an area of interest, of making knowledge into a virus. I wrote the post that you linked to originally as a way of getting my kids excited about protesting our district’s decision (and ultimately 8e6’s). Many of my students have taken me up on the offer and a few of them have added their posts to our del.icio.us account (http://del.icio.us/weeklyauthentic/google_video). I would love to see more students start sticking up for their learning experiences, and I think that we owe it to them to do so as well.
