@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.
Historians of Micro.blog (though I think only @schuth is in academia at the moment):
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 ;-) )
@smokey Thanks for tagging me in this. It helped me see some more people I should be following!
@jonrjordan Thanks. Hat to to @c for the Micro Monday post that originated the educator/researcher list.
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.
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.
@c this made me very happy, thanks for tagging me, I’ve now got a bunch more interesting folks to follow!
