We talk about Personal Learning Networks all over the place. They’re groupings that help us learn together. I learned this morning that they can also help cover your butt.
This wasn’t supposed to be the post for this morning. I had another already cued up and go to go for auto-posting at 5am. It wasn’t a serious post; just one of those goofy things that I put together last night while watching The Apprentice. Because it wasn’t serious, I relied on one sole source.
Well, it turns out that source wasn’t credible. Thankfully, my friend @aforgrave read it and did spend some time poking around and let me know about the link. Consequently, I’ve pulled the post.
Thanks, Andy. I owe you.
