To reiterate, we are#notNFM: not web page, blog, FB page A new faculty majority, twitter streams @precariousfac and @VCVaile nor other blogs and social media sites tentatively designated part of the Precarious Faculty Rising (PFR) Network. These open pages are part of my personal, informal network of precarious faculty links — news, information , support and advocacy sites  NOT an organization!

Please revisit the following posts: "on recent social media changes" December 15, 2013; "blog updates—new pages & other confusion mitigation" December 18, 2013; and "#PFR network: blog & #socialmedia directions" January 15, 2014

We are all working toward a common goal, just not all on the same track or following the same map. Cooperation and coordinating efforts make more sense than conflict and competition — let's leave that behind us in the realm of higher ed hierarchy and #badmin that we want to change
