As I attempt to embody the kinds of governance I'd most like to see in higher education, I gravitate toward radical #transparency. I share work-in-progress early and often. And as a result you're likely to hear a lot from me about how things are going here and particularly about what happened when things go wrong.
Thanks for being part of this new community, and thanks for bearing with us as we learn to fly the plane in mid-air!
*"Something like": We know we had around 31,000 registered users before we onboarded #HASTAC. HASTAC brought with it about 19,000 users who had accounts on their old servers. Some number of those are likely duplicates that didn't get caught in the process. And until HASTAC users actually log in at HCommons, I'm a little uncomfortable counting them. But the number that comes up when we check to see how many members we have is over 50K, so until we get a more accurate count I'm going with it.
