Another dot in the blogosphere?

Wishful thinking

Posted on: February 11, 2013

Last Friday I learnt that Wallwisher had changed its name.

I applaud @wallwisher for responding quickly.

But I wonder if they could have used the 140-character limit in Twitter to respond more effectively. If they think that response is going to change my mind, then I call that wishful thinking!

I “broke their hearts” because they had neither won me as a supporter nor a customer. I think I am entitled to respond: Do something about it to win me over.

According to @rmbyrne, Wallwisher’s change is one in name and not much yet in functionality.

Until it is as feature-rich and has a seamless mobile app like LinoIt, I’m going to keep promoting LinoIt to pre and inservice teachers who attend my courses and workshops.

I have my preferences not for emotional reasons, but for processes and products that add value, enable innovation, or offer the most bang for buck. It is the responsible thing to do when I am in a position to influence.

By the way, if you want to know why Wallwisher is renaming itself to Padlet, read their blog announcement.

Let’s just say they are for reasons similar to why the LMS is called Blackboard (legacy systems). And we know how progressive educators are reacting to that platform!
