I must begin my post with sincere apologies and a short explanation. You may have noticed my lack of presence online over the last 2 weeks. It started the night of our Elluminate session. I could feel myself getting sick and I lost my voice. Shortly thereafter, both of my boys came down with the horrendous North American flu that is wreaking havoc. And, as you may have guessed, 4 days of caring for sick kids undoubtedly turned into me getting sick. I have been out of commission for 2 weeks now! I think everyone at work is beginning to forget what I look like. And well, since you guys don’t really know what I look like, you’ve maybe forgotten my writing style…lol.
In any case, I’m starting to feel a bit better and am hoping to make my re-appearance online this week! Here is my critique of Designing and Orchestrating Online Discussions.
