Mountainair @ NM 87036 & Online

Mountainair NM, Broadway (US 60)

Home  / more about Mountainair / Online in Mountainair / earlier community and personal pages are hosted here and community blogs on Blogger. These initial efforts expanded to a multple focus network with blogs on multiple platforms / Social Media / Curated aggregation pages on Storify and Scoop.it, generated by algorithm on Paper.li. 

Beyond Mountainair: Social Bookmarking on Diigo and Delicious  and an overflowing RSS Reader. Poets and Writers Picnic started as a page for an annual local poetry event that expanded into another network (pages, blog, twitter stream)

Online courses, another community, that started with Vance Steven's Multiliteracies EVO workshop and (yet again) expanded into the emerging MOOC-iverse with a series of connectivist moocs starting with PLENK 2010 and others through EduMOOC 2011,Change 11, etc. and onto checking out the x-models.

Mountainair Online
The network of pages hosted on this domain is a work in progress that, tentatively, was to include:
  1. Mountainair 87036, linked pages for local community information, images, local links,calendar, events, a portal page to community blogs and area media, aggregator page cross-tabbed and linked to other nodes
  2. Professional and workplace pages, covering work areas past and present, including work history and narratives, breeding farm management; technical writing, oil field engineering and construction support,
  3. Teaching, web work, blogging, social media, writing
  4. Education, past and continuing, as well as projects not covered under the "profession" tag: interests; learning pages; research
  5. Personal pages and networks
Alas, a plan that stalled, although feed fed widgets for Mountainair, Poets & Writers, Multiliteracies, etc live on replenished by RSS feed, giving the impression of a site better maintained than it actually is...and could yet return to.
