* students writing about their experiences
* same with faculty or employees — both in personal realm and in their professional fields (cf: interlectual, freakonomics)
* a way for us to get professional development on the cheap (design blogs, marketing blogs, and again, interlectual)
* a tool we are already using (examples!) and future use (far-out ideas?!)
