@manton & @danielpunkass speaking of Tumblr as competition for mb. I think the a differentiator is the relative calm of micro.blog, both in interface & community. Lots more to chew over regarding WordPress & Tumblr.
If I embed tweets on this blog I usually just paste in the url to the tweet and it auto-magically embeds.

gives a nice single tweet.
NB, for Scottish educators, this is not true for Glow Blogs at the moment. I suspect due to our version of Jetpack?

Following from this conversation
Tom Woodward whipped up a plugin to clone posts on a WordPress Multi-site blog to one of your own.
I think this could be a really useful way of giving pupils a template for e-Portfolio post. I’d be very interested in exploring getting this into Glow Blogs. I’ve been asked about this sort of functionality a few times.

Every Wednesday in March and April, Teaching Matters will examine a different aspect of blogging as part of the Academic Blogging mini-series.
Anne-Marie Scott Introduces a series of posts to support blogging at Edinburgh university. A lot of WordPress going on.
Thanks for the listen, it is not often I am accused of keeping things on track;-)
I’ve though about this a wee bit. Doing the whole thing via the indieweb would be beautiful but it raises the barrier for participation very high. Setting up WordPress for indieweb is certainly doable but the number of folk interested in WordPress and education that would do this would be low. Given the notion of accessibility I think this is more something to aim for long term?
I had though of the idea of running the whole thing on p2, I’ve set up a couple of short term p2 blogs for Education Scotland to go with public events. You can set p2 to allow subscribers to post and set a widget to allow self registration. In our set up this registration was limited to Glow Scotland users. This of course loses the indieweb bit. Unfortunately p2 is pretty horrible on mobile.
I hope you get a proposal together, it would be great to have an indieWeb presence virtually at the conference. I expect you would post your presentation tweets via your site. I did consider that last time when I presented but was worried about timing and appearance on twitter which I’ve not really got my head round.

A nice WordPress video from Micro.blog’s @ross. Just the right depth and length for me.
