For Micro Monday I’ll recommend a handful of educators and researchers on micro.blog. Each and everyone of them has something to teach us.

@c Thanks for this! I was pleased to discover that there were only two I wasn’t already following.

@rnv I suspect that there are far more, these are just the ones I'm aware of presently. I'd love to hear from others.

@c I agree, especially since it helps dispel the myth that Micro.blog is heavily biased toward or overpopulated by the tech/web nerds. I think teachers — and librarians! — are often every bit as much on the front lines of new technologies as the techies are. That, at any rate, was my impression during the first big blog rush of the late 90s & early aughts — and the email/BBS of the 80s & early 90s.

@c @rnv

Historians of Micro.blog (though I think only @schuth is in academia at the moment):

Two archaeologists-to-be:

Educators (I also ran across a gentleman this weekend whose bio included “high school principal” but can’t recall who):

And last but not least, one more librarian:

(I really wish we had lists and better access to our list of people we follow, and/or searching of bio text, so I wouldn’t have to top-of-my-head these sorts of things every time someone asks “who are the foo on Micro.blog”—but, in time, it will come ;-) )

@c thanks I’ve certainly learnt a brain full from you in a short time. Another educator I ‘found’ this morning is @ryanboren

@johnjohnston I had just followed @ryanboren last week myself, but didn't know he was on microblog.

I suppose I'm slowly retraining myself to follow people's primary/canonical (IndieWeb) presences via feed reader rather than their simulacra on other social silos. I find it avoids a lot of duplication.

@c I think of micro.blog as a sort of RSS reader. Nearer inoreader than twitter in my imaginary social dock. Still use twitter as a lot of teachers have no other presence.

@johnjohnston I port several Twitter lists and other social like that into my feed reader with twitter-atom.appspot.com

@c @rnv Also, in terms of researchers/scientists, @dcpace is a “plasma physicist researching fusion energy”.

I'm adding @cplong to my ever-growing list of educators, researchers, and scholars on micro.blog. Looks like he's playing in the DoOO space, but perhaps not the IndieWeb space yet. boffosocko.com/2018/07/2...

It's not Monday, but adding Georgia Tech Professor @blair to the list of educators and researchers on micro.blog.

Who else are we missing?

@c hoops, sorry, I responded to the wrong thread. Meant to recommend John, but did not mean to spam your recommendations of educators. Sorry.
