Did You Miss Common Craft Week?

I'm not sure you realized, but it was Common Craft week last week. I know, it snuck up on you again. Me too!

Really though, we were surpised and honored to see that the folks at New Media in the Land of Manana decided that such a week existed last week. Well, it started in Tuesday, but we'll call it even.

Tuesday: The Common Craft

Common Craft Wednesday: What is a Wiki?
Common Craft Thursday: What is Social Networking?
Common Craft Friday: 4600 in 2.2 minutes

From what I can tell, the site is run by Josh from Albuquerque, NM and is (maybe) related to PBS station KNME. Thanks for the kind words Josh! I'd love to know more about The Land of Manana. Is it a project of yours?
