Glacier National Park recently surpassed 100,000 “likes” on the park’s Facebook page, three years to the day that the page was created in 2009. Jared, from Huntsville, Alabama, became the 100,000th “friend” of the park through this popular social media venue.
Glacier National Park Superintendent Chas Cartwright said, “It is amazing to see the role of social media with park visitors, and those visitors that visit the park virtually.” As a 36-year veteran of public land management, Cartwright never imagined the vast opportunities that social media provides.
As a leader within the National Park Service, Glacier National Park utilizes social media tools to communicate and connect with individuals interested in the park. These tools allow individuals to choose how to be informed, and how often to be informed.
Glacier National Park social media tools include; Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, and the world-wide web. For more information about each tool and how to access each, visit http://www.nps.gov/glac/parknews/index.htm.

Star Wars Uncut: Director’s Cut
Finally, the crowd-sourced project has been stitched together and put online for your streaming pleasure. The Director’s Cut is a feature-length film that contains hand-picked scenes from the entire StarWarsUncut.com collection.
In 2009, thousands of Internet users were asked to remake “Star Wars: A New Hope” into a fan film, 15 seconds at a time. Contributors were allowed to recreate scenes from Star Wars however they wanted. Within just a few months SWU grew into a wild success. The creativity that poured into the project was unimaginable.
SWU has been featured in documentaries, news features and conferences around the world for its unique appeal. In 2010 we won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.
We can’t thank everyone enough for making this such a special project.

Like many of us, I’ve been thinking a lot about Steve Jobs the last few days — thinking about the man and his legacy. I’ve been having some trouble even understanding the way I feel, let alone being able to put it into words. Lots of folks have asked me what I think, and have been surprised that I…
