Non-bloggity ALTA members might be interested to look over here on Technorati, a search engine that references blog posts. Take a look: right now, people are noticing the idea of the Carnival of Blog Translation, and they seem to like it a lot. I hope we get a lot of participants!
I especially noticed D. Karopatwa's post on his education/blogging/math blog "A Difference". His posts about using blogs in the classroom are so good, I'm going to have to make time to go back and read all his archives.
Well, anyway, we have a lot of interest right now in the blogosphere! How exciting! And I think that's thanks to a nice mention by languagehat.
