A word about darinlhammond:
I love to climb into minds and mess around a bit, harmlessly. I am an English professor, but my secret passions include web design, social media, technology, Spanish, neuroscience, and bonsai on the side. I love to blog at http://www.zipminis.com, and I also write for Technorati and Social Media Today.
