Late Breaking EdTech Community Forum

Dear EdTechTalker's,

   We will be webcasting an EdTechTalk Community Forum on Sunday April 29 at 8pmEDT / 5pmPDT / midnight GMT .

There have been some heated Edublog postings recently (links below) concerning the virtues and pitfalls of different methods for facilitating community development and discussion within the Edublogosphere. We'd like to host a discussion that addresses some of the questions these exchanges have raised.
