Okay, I broke down and joined Facebook...

So, I've gotten a lot of requests to join Facebook, and I've been very careful about it. To make a long story short, the school's administration once cautioned me about this sort of thing. I had set up an AOL instant messenger screen name specifically for my students, and word of it got back to the higher ups and I was told to not do that.

I think that education goes outside of being lectured to, and that the world is changing so that more informal methods of communication (i.e. Facebook, IMing) are the norm for the younger generation...which, on many levels, I am a part of.

Anyway, if you want to "friend" me there:

For the record...much like this blog, it's going to stay relatively professional.
