What do D-Worders and hosts think about starting a "Social Media" separate topic thread to cover issues using Facebook, Twitter,etc. & whatever new forms will arise? Social media may span different topics (marketing, distribution, fundraising, etc.), but I know some D-Worders are starting to use social media with varying results.

Sean Flynn should post about his use of Twitter. He has some good tips.

I'm having an iPhone glitch when trying to post on D-word. If I hit the back/delete button, it erases either the whole word, the whole sentence or the whole post. It only happens (so far) on D-word. Any suggestions?

Is this a recent thing or has it been like this all along? Can other iPhone users confirm?

(Note to self: Start a separate fund-raising drive for a mobile version.)

suggest you join the rest of us plebs sitting calmly behind their computers interacting on the d-word.

Well, The D-Word was never designed for mobile phones. But it runs fine on mine (Nokia E90). However, we could do a poll and see how many people want a streamlined version with less data load for their phones.

The data load is fine. Actually, D-word is one of the faster loads at home on my slow connection. It's just the typing deal that is the problem.

I used to have that problem, but I'm not aware of it any more. Have you done a iPhone software update Mikal? That might help.

Huh, no, but I've only had it a couple months and they updated it when I bought it. I think the new software is available. I'll check on that...

Just wondering if the category "Video Essay" has any traction? Not 'documentary' in the purist sense. I'd call the docu-drama sections of the video I'm working on "documentation of the future".

This topic is for questions about The D-Word, David- but FWIW, "Video Essay" is fine – although it might not ring everyone's bell.

Hi, John, Hope to see you at Folklife Festival. I'll be there mid-day Saturday. Will you?
I thought this section was also for 'ideas for future D-Word ... projects' ... such as attention to video essays. Where, then, would that suggestion best be made?
