Tomorrow, we’ll return to our normal posting schedule. We hope your winter break has been a good one, and hope that everyone has a terrific semester (even if your classes started already)!
We hope you found something interesting or useful in this week’s posts, which included:
- Soon we’ll stop talking about the MLA conference, but the massive group post, Academics and Social Media: #mla11, Free Wifi, and the Question of Inclusion broached several interesting topics about big conferences and disciplinary inclusiveness, including the dreaded Twitter Hegemony. (The Golden Globes are playing in the background, which reminds me that if you look back in the #mla11 archives, you’ll see conference attendees sharing a hotel with the People’s Choice Awards.)
- Brian (and a host of commenters!) suggest Using Spreadsheets for Everything.
- In “Writer’s Bootcamp,” Billie reflected on the uses of Journaling.
- Nels asked readers to explain Your Grading Process, and Amy updated us on her experiment with Ditching a Textbook.
- Kathleen reported on recent Updates from Gmail, and Natalie explained how to Set E-mail Reminders with Nudgemail. In non-e-mail news, Ryan discussed how Dropbox’s 1.0 release, with selective folder syncing, addresses some readers’ concerns about installing it on university hardware.
- In the standing posts, George invited proposed topics , while I wrapped up the schedule with Weekend Reading: There’s Zotero Everywhere! Edition.
