Thanks for putting up with me tweeting about this (interesting!) journalism conference today. It will be finished in a couple of hours.

#ejsummit Question: What happens if a student project is wildly commercially successful?
#EJSummit Question: Do any of you have your teams establish a corporate structure or agreement about ownership of their project?
Brian Steffen, Simpson College. Show students other students who have succeeded. If they can do it, I can too. Building belief is important.
