23 Things, THING 23!!!!

Wow! I’m actually on Thing 23. I honestly cannot believe it. It has genuinely been a heck of a struggle to get to this point. I’ve enjoyed it but there is a part of me that wishes I had considered when I would actually have the time to do all of the Things without panickingContinue reading “23 Things, THING 23!!!!”

Thing 22 is all about wikis. I’m not really sure about what I can write about this topic. I’ve never used wikis in my work but after watching the video and SlideShare presentation on Cam23’s entry on the topic, I definitely can see the benefits. As I understand it, a wiki is pretty similar toContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 22”

So Thing 21 is all about podcasts. I’m not all that sure as to how much statistically podcasts have really taken off over the years, but I know I have never really used the purely audio varient. I can see the benefit of them and how flexible they allow for radio listeners to be ifContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 21”

So Thing 20 is all about Google Documents which is a service that I have already had the chance to use to some degree. One could argue that sharing a document in this way isn’t that different to emailing a file around for people to see. I would disagree because Google Documents allows for thoseContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 20”

23 Things, Thing 19

Marketing. That one word brings up a mixture of reactions for me. I feel a combination of terror shiver-down-the-spine and a touch of apathy. I have come to realise over the course of the 23 Things programme that I don’t get all this emphasis on being on every single online service going. Being on Twitter/Facebook/YouTube/Flickr/otherContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 19”

23 Things, Thing 18

Blimey! Thing 18 already! And with only another five Things to go, 23 Things is rapidly coming to a close! I never thought I’d manage to get this far but I have so yay! So, Thing 18 is all about Zotero. When I first started blogging about the 23 Things, Zotero was one of theContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 18”

So Thing 17 is all about LinkedIn. The best way that I can describe LinkedIn from an outsider’s perspective is that it seems to be a professional version of Facebook. Instead of all your hobbies and favourite films, your profile consists of your work and education history. I have heard of people being head-hunted fromContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 17”

23 Things, Thing 16

Thing 16 focusses on Facebook and the use of the social networking site by libraries and other library-related people and companies. I find that if you still do not have a Facebook account then you’re either really behind or really ahead and have realised the privacy issues and have jumped ship! Either way, I thinkContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 16”

23 Things, Thing 15

As you can see above, I have had some great fun and success with figuring out LibraryThing. My library can be found here. I haven’t added everything that I own but I reckon what I’ve put together represents my reading tastes pretty well. I found setting up my LibraryThing profile and adding books to beContinue reading “23 Things, Thing 15”
