  1. Amy this is a great podcast! love the way what you say is reflected in how you say it – for example the twitter character limit comment runs out of character limit…a neat reflection on how, while at the same time as enabling conversations/thought, the social media software that run social media platforms also restricts conversations/thought. Makes it fit into format. Pre-existing packages that just well…may not suit an individual’s thought process or allow us to have the conversations we want to have. looking forward to seeing your self portrait project. Don’t forget to post it as a comment on my blog please! bw s
