Lilli writes: Me? A social networker?

My husband brought my attention to page 5 of the recent Alumni Bulletin (which is not yet posted on-line).  It talks about the blog you are reading right now as one of the ways the Extension School is embracing social networking.

Well I thought it was pretty funny because although I am about to graduate with my Master’s in IT, I am not a social networker.  I do not have an account with facebook, twitter, or anything else one might dream up.  I only use email for making work and school more productive.  My means of communication with friends and family are in person or over the phone.  I much prefer a conversation than a brag board with pictures attached.

I was honored this summer when I was asked to be part of this project.  I am still not convinced anyone out there is reading my thoughts on going back to school while working full-time.  If you are and have any ideas for future topics,  please share them.

      Hi Theresa,

      Thank you for the kind words. I hope that I am able to continue to make you feel a part of the Harvard community.
