Emerging Technologies Summer Institute: Crowdsourced Professional Development
There's tons of cool web apps out there that may or may not be useful to you; I often learn about these apps through Twitter or other social media when my colleagues and friends discover something they think is awesome. So this summer I thought I'd try to gather all that discovery together in one place, so that those of us who are interested could influence each other and spark some ideas. I've invited anyone who's interested to post a screencast of their favourite internet finds, and show us why they think it's cool, for the month of July only.

The developers of apps have other places to showcase them; this is more for end users demonstrating how and why they think a thing is cool, or has potential, or is a good proof of concept. These are not professional-quality screencasts; they are informal, casual, and off-the-cuff. This is an experimental project. I wondered if I could convince anyone to participate, and whether they really would when the time came. There's a few there so far, and July isn't over yet.
