I think the problem with exams/modules/retakes is that we've authorised "failure without consequence". Which encourages low ambition.

I sense that the separation of personal/academic/professional is - for many people - an increasingly blurred divide. Busy lives and complex employment structures mean that home and work are no longer the separate worlds that perhaps they once were. Friends and Contacts and Colleagues are increasingly part of a complex social network that can't easily be unpicked. Obviously I wouldn't advise anyone to head off down the Facebook and Twitter paths without being aware of the pitfalls that might lie ahead. But the opportunities are huge and I suspect that the fears are largely fears of the unknown. The careful use of Privacy settings can help allay such fears. As can the use of two accounts - one private and one professional. So, yes, I hear what you say - and I understand your concerns. But I don't sense that the tide is running your way.

1. "Just for Direct" would be a great option. 2. If I'm abroad, what happens to these auto-subscribed texts? I can see the "completely free" bit not quite being true in these circumstances.

You should also consider FreeMind which is, err, free...

"Something along the lines of gestures is needed to supplement what we already have in comments." 43 Things has "Cheers" which seem to go someway in this direction. But, in the meantime, I was here, I enjoyed this (and a number of your recent postings), so - yes - thank you... Ian Yorston
