Couldn’t agree more Doug. There is too much noise for starters, I have less time which definitely doesn’t help, and 140 characters feels old now. I know the last one is a technicality but it’s true. Life is too short to spend shortening tweets! Removing @ names and urls from the 140 count would help with conversations.
Nostalgia for the old days is always strong – that pic of you, Tom, Ian and others 5+ years ago made me reflect on how things change. Think it might have been from Nottingham Teechmeet – I remember us all marvelling at Mr Barrat’s incredible achievement of reaching 1000 followers!!
Slack needs more investigation from me, thanks for the reminder, might be just the thing I need to draw some teams together from our two schools where the 30 mile physical gap and failings of email cause issues.
