Dave's Link: As a follow up for last week's "online PhDs are awesome" discussion http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/10/education/10kaplan.html?_r=1&src=tptw NYT's article on Kaplan and lobbying to go with our own fun at UPEI. http://www.cbc.ca/canada/prince-edward-island/story/2010/11/10/pe-upei-degree-maclaughlan-584.html?ref=rss#socialcomments

Jen's Link: Hard to NOT mention the #boycott amazon uproar this week. Jen used the story as an opportunity to try out tweet doc -> http://www.tweetdoc.org. Check out the boycott amazon tweets linked here if you were hiding under a rock on Wednesday and Thursday ... or if you just want to see how tweet doc functions :) ... http://tweetdoc.org/View/6387/Boycott-Amazon

John's Link:  If we're talking about books, there were a couple compelling book-related items that crossed my radar this week. Adrian Hon, founder of Six Apart, addressed book piracy in an Op Ed in the Telegraph a couple weeks ago (Your time is up, publishers. Book piracy is about to arrive on a massive scale). And from Read Write Web comes a piece (Will Your Local Library Lend E-Books? (Or Can They?)) on the impact of e-books on the ability of libraries to legally lend resources. What better topics for one of the few weeks when we don't have a librarian as a guest?

Jen's Link: Mashable recently posted a roster of "website designs" that blew them away in 2010 -> see http://mashable.com/2010/10/31/breakthrough-website-design/ ... so, with some pushing students to create / foster their "online identities" -> see http://twitter.com/#!/shareski/status/29421705996 ... what does "website design" mean to students (and teachers, instructional designers, etc.) in 2010? in 2015?
