Did You Know? and LeaderTalk are finalists for the 2007 Edublog Awards
It's time to vote for the 2007 Edublog Awards. There are LOTS of great candidates. Go vote for your favorites and discover new ones!
The Did You Know? video that went viral (10 million online viewers and counting!) is nominated for most influential blog post. Although it was my slightly modified version of the video that went viral, a vote for the post is really a vote for Karl Fisch's vision and creativity. Although Karl's own blog is nominated in this category, I confess that I am hoping that Did You Know? wins instead.
I'm also delighted that LeaderTalk is nominated for best group blog. This is a real tribute to the nearly 50 busy administrators and faculty who somehow find time each month to share what it's like to live the life of a school leader today. FYI, we're always looking for new authors. Drop me a note if you'd like to write for LeaderTalk!
The Edublog Awards are one way to recognize great blogging. In December I'm going to highlight some other bloggers who I think deserve a bigger audience. Stay tuned!

For Damien Echols, tattoos are part of his existential armor.
- In prison Damien Echols was known by his number SK931, not his name, and had his hair sheared off. Stripped of his identity, the only thing he had left was his skin.
- This is why he began tattooing things that are meaningful to him — to carry a "suit of armor" made up the images of the people and things that have significance to him, from his friends to talismans.
- Echols believes that all places are imbued with divinity: "If you interact with New York City as if there's an intelligence behind... then it will behave towards you the same way.".
