Spark the Author in You #edtech

As many of you know, I have been trying to author a book this year among the myriad of other projects I have in the blazing bonfire that is my life.  It probably isn't going to happen this year since this 365 project seems to be eating a lot of my time.  But when I do, I may just post early versions of my work to Authonomy. What's nice about Authonomy is it gives aspiring authors a place to post their work and have it reviewed by others on the web.  Feedback is a very important part of the creative process.  This is one I'll let you explore on your own, especially since I'm running out of time.

*note to Authonomy developers - I love what you are doing here and the concept is top notch!  In the future it may be nice if the site worked better with the Chrome browser (scrolling kept locking up in Chrome), some form of Creative Commons licensing would be fantastic and finally the ability to download the books into some form of e-reader application would really be helpful.  I don't usually leave notes within one of my reviews and if you read this I hope you take it as constructive feedback because I really do believe Authonomy has a ton of value to add!
