I think the idea is good (add1 idea), but it's worth noting that most
everything I write on my blog is carefully considered. I have to
assume my colleagues are reading what I write, and that what I say
online may have impact in my workplace. That's just a "Matt
participating in the conversation as a (paranoid?) member of the
faculty" kind of comment, though.

So, I'd be happy to participate... I wonder if I would find more value
(in terms of my personal participation) in aggregating two sources: a
tag on my blog and a tag in my Delicious Bookmarks. That way, I could
treat a particular tag in my bookmarks as a "microblog". I get 1000
characters in the notes field, which is more than enough space to say
something moderately insightful while linking to a resource.

Would that fit in this model? I ask simply because I don't do a lot of
"full contact" blogging lately... it takes a lot of time (at least the
way I tend to do it), so most of my expression is in the form of
infrequent, more thought-out pieces. (At least, that's what it feels
like these last few months.)
