To do

  1. Tues, 3/04, 4:00 pm: Post x4, Concept in 60, to this site.
  2. Thurs, 3/06, 4:00 pm: Read Trubek and Rosen on Twitter.  Post at least one example of each of Trubek’s four types of tweets (headlines, questions, quips, responses) to #685dw.  If possible, try to do this work on Thursday, so these tweets are near the top of the feed.
