So, twitter’s advanced search lets you do things like, oh, see all tweets in a 15 mile radius of Bergen, for instance. And if you do that, you might see a tweet from junebre who turns out to be June Breivik, the project manager for digital schools in our area. And who has a blog, with many interesting posts (the video in this one had me roaring with laughter), among others one about Del og bruk, a Ning network that in the course of a few weeks has gathered nearly 500 Norwegian teachers who use the social web in their classrooms. I love web serendipity – and it looks as though Twitter can aid it.
