Thanks, that's great to hear and thanks for getting involved, your posts are great, nice to see your content section building up on your profile. The site is far from perfect but lots of room for development. Its a little different from posting in a purely social sense, a different context, somewhere in between, its all about exploring how we practice openly 'open practice' or 'open educational practice' OEP, I think we're all navigating those new roads together, we need to do some car sharing, hopefully have a bus load soon ! Cheers Chris

The www.ubu.com looks really good, all the content has no embed code and its a big mash up of copyrighted content - maybe best to do what you've done here and point views to the site, rather they copy and publish as theres no embed, there Q and As are good - Can I use something posted on UbuWeb on my site, in a paper, in a project, etc.? - http://www.ubu.com/resources/faq.html#4

Be good to have your top 10 links on this site included in this post.

You can add a thumbnail image for this post as it has a generic one if not added - I would use ubu.com twitter logo or something - http://a1.twimg.com/profile_images/341493740/Ubu-Icon.jpg
