Library 2.0

Our fabulous Library team is using Blogger to communicate about their experimentation with a variety of emerging (or recently emerged) technologies. What they're doing is safe and supportive and very, very cool. Nonexperts pick a topic, do some research, and create a little module in the form of a blog that includes recommended readings, some instructions for getting started, and an opportunity for reflection. Please see the original Learning 2.0 program for the inspiration behind this project and links to other libraries doing similar things.

They kindly invited me to participate (thank you, Sarah), which of course raises my last question of "do I blog?" for which I'm still awaiting an answer. But also! While I've been assiduously not-blogging, Blogger has been making blogging cooler with new ways to customize sites and more easily add images (see proof at right) and probably do things I haven't even thought of yet.

So... maybe I'll pull up my old list and get to work. Maybe.
