In 2010, the 13th most-popular post on my personal blog was "Student Affairs + Jobs + RSS + Email." In the post, I outline how you can use RSS feeds to have job postings delivered to your RSS reader. Several student affairs associations and job posting sites offer RSS feeds for their position announcements.

I love web stats. If I had a cat, I would name it "Google Analytics."

When your editor asks if you plan on "weighing in on the placenta/Facebook story" it gets your attention. Having read "Facebook, a Placenta and a Lawsuit" on Monday, I re-read the article and the comments from Inside Higher Ed readers. Four students in the nursing program at Johnson County Community College were "dismissed" from the program after they posted a photograph of a placenta on at least one Facebook profile.

2010 was a tremendous year for me. I met a lot of fantastic people, shared some amazing stories, and experienced a lot of professional/personal growth. With my last post of 2010, I want to acknowledge some of the phenomenal folks who continually teach and challenge me. I appreciate their wisdom, guidance, and friendship. I am so excited about 2011. I'll see you next year. Thanks for reading!

I think I may have just outed my dad. You see, my father is a luddite. He is extremely proud of this identity. He uses technology in so much as only when it is an absolute necessity. He has had a cellphone for a couple years. He occasionally listens to CDs using the Discman that I left at home when I went to college. To the best of my knowledge, every email is still printed out. It's not because he can't read them on the computer screen. It seems to be more about maintaining his "ludditeness." My dad does not have an affinity for technology.

This past July, I wrote a post titled "Technology needs to be more than a 'thread.'" The post generated a fair amount of discussion. I have read everyone’s comments, seen a few tweets, and even received a couple of emails. It would seem that technology in student affairs is an issue that we in the profession need to discuss at length.

Mark Zuckerberg et al. seem to find endless joy in making us learn a new user interface (UI). It is once again time for a major Facebook UI update. This time it's profile pages that have received a major overhaul. My first impression: I like it. Unlike previous UI changes that were overwhelming shocking in their approach, this redesign feels right.

Okay, so maybe this won't be that epic, or an ode for that matter, but I've been thinking about email a lot lately. Email often becomes the villain when we talk about communication tools. Email is portrayed as something that needs to "die." Well, my view is that email is a juggernaut. Email is not going anywhere.
