Last class post!ecomm

Farewell, LIS 757, I have learned a lot. For our final week tasks I am to comment on which social software tools I will continue using. Definitely Bloglines and I have been using them throughout for many other reasons than this class and I have become addicted. I hope to return to some of […]

Social Software in Librariesecomm

Fri, 01 Dec 2006 20:48:27 +0000

Now that I have reached the end of this LIS757 course on Social Software & Libraries I have a much better overall picture of social software’s place in libraries. First of all, I feel it has a place. Secondly, I have to agree with my colleague, Colleen, that libraries must always examine their motives and […]

CBC News reports Podcasting not-so-hotecomm

Thu, 23 Nov 2006 03:39:33 +0000

Just in time for this week’s topic, CBC News has posted an article Podcasting download volume lagging behind buzz: study says.  It reports on the Pew Internet & American Life Project Podcast Study done this August, which indicated that only 1% of internet users download a podcast on a typical day, and that 12% of […]

Librarians, fix your makeup!ecomm

Thu, 23 Nov 2006 03:06:31 +0000

First of all, I would like to send a big thanks to this weeks presenters on Podcasting, they did a great job. Before this class I listened to a couple of podcasts that I searched for on iTunes and downloaded onto my iPod. I looked for Spanish broadcasts to keep up my skills (ha!) and […]

A week off!ecomm

I’m using a blogging break this week, but thanks for checking! I can’t resist mentioning that Zotero is asking librarians for help promoting their tool across campuses.

I have 1 friend!ecomm

Mon, 06 Nov 2006 22:08:49 +0000

I just signed up for Facebook!  Being a bit on the edge of the age group using Facebook (i.e. TOO OLD), I’ve never felt the need to do so, and apparently neither had my friends (Facebook lets you check if any contacts from your email addressbook have accounts). But I found my classmate Susan!  I […]

Exploring Folksonomies After Midnightecomm

Thu, 02 Nov 2006 19:47:32 +0000

D’oh… reading week has melted my brain and I forgot to post this LAST WEEK! The Lawley article has an interesting start – discussing the potential ‘evil’ in folksonomies, such as deliberately mislabeled items. I have wondered about how advertisers could misuse tags to promote their product (simply add the ‘most popular tag today’ to […]

Exploring Folksonomies before midnightecomm

Thu, 26 Oct 2006 03:57:46 +0000

It’s a race to the finish!  See how far I make it through the readings before midnight! The Kroski article is a good summary of the Pros and Cons of folksonomies, but the most important message, I feel, is that “resistance is futile”! The web is so large and ever-changing that paying professionals to classify […]

I really like the looks of my new BlinkList account but I wish I could import my account! I know I should be able to but my passwords don’t seem to work for their export to xml page. I love looking at my colourful cloud, the images of the webpages next to the […]

Don’t hide your social bookmarks!ecomm

Wed, 18 Oct 2006 15:19:47 +0000

I can’t find the links to Lansing Public Library’s bookmarks on their home page, but it looks like they have some well-monitored and defined categories (black_history). LaGrange Park Public Library’s account is a little sparse in comparison and no large theme jumps out at me. I think a library’s account would best […]
