Bonnie Borthwick of Lesley U. in Cambridge has started a Haavaahd Web log that is “exploring uses of blogs in the workplace,” which in her case means schools. As always, it’s interesting to watch as someone publicly thinks out loud about how blogs might fit his/her situation. And, should I be envious that having a Crimson blog means Dave will respond to your Manila musings? Bonnie wonders if she can audioblog in Manila, and Dave comments: “I’ve asked them to do a general audio blogging tool, and there’s some hope they’ll do that.” Must be nice.
So, um, hey Bonnie…can you wonder aloud if Manila’s going to get a trackback feature any time soon? ;0)
I have to say that it’s pretty eye-opening to watch the Manila Dev board at Yahoo as Dave demands and grumbles and Jake cranks out the requests. Watching that interaction has given me a lot of insight as to the issues with Manila and the problems with developing it. But the greatest thing to happen to Manila users is Dave’s commitment to Harvard. He’s panicked by the problems his new users are having, the same problems we’ve been having all along. And he seems pretty committed to making Manila a standard for wider adoption in schools, which means he’s gonna have to add all the bells and whistles we’ve been asking for.
Now, if only he would be so impassioned about hosting…
