Interesting article re: promoting Web 2.0 to narrow digital divide

This isn't strictly *library* 2.0, but I'm sure it's applicable and will be of interest here...



"Arming the isolated with high tech: Peter MacGibbon at Carleton University is creating a program for rural communities. The Goal: To narrow the digital divide for the disadvantaged," a March 27, 2008 Ottawa Citizen article discusses some pilot projects to use web conferencing, podcasting and wikis to develop entrepreneurship in remote, rural areas.

Update to my Social App threshold

I should mention that I'm finally on Facebook as well.

The tipping point for me was working extra shifts at the combined high school/public branch library at my MPOW, where I was talking with the full-time librarian, who said he fielded questions from the students via Facebook on a daily basis.

So I guess I can handle 3 online profiles after all.

And, of course, there's no comparision between Facebook and MySpace: FB is far more user-friendly and robust.

I'm begining to cotton on to Twitter

Last night, I read Rochelle's post, Collegiality in Twitter (see [http://rochellejustrochelle.typepad.com/copilot/2007/03/collegiality_in.html]), in which she described two cases where Twitter was very useful for professional and academic work. It was quite a compelling post.

Then this morning, the thought occurred to me: ok, so Twitter can be used as a public, multi-user SMS...I see how that would be really helpful...

Well,duh - have some sympathy for a late-adopter.

Think I'll stay/my social app threshold

I meant to post this a couple days after joining the Library2.0Ning, but now I see it's almost two weeks later. Such is life

Just wanted to say that I'm finding this a felicitous space and, just like Jessica The Cool Librarian, I'll keep coming back "just for all the library-goodness."

Having said that, I think I'll continue visiting MySpace and using that whenever I'm compelled to post or link to anything. Despite all its drawbacks, it's the best fit for me,…

Hello Library 2.0

Well, Rochelle aka TinFoilRaccoon first directed my attention towards this network. Then, moments later I saw Kathryn Greenhill's March 5th post on her librariansmatter.com blog.

The Library 2.0 Ning Network sure looks nifty and has great credentials, so I've decided to join.

Not sure how much I'll do here personally though...How many social sites can you participate in before you implode? Reminds me of the co-operative sector in that regard...

At any rate; hello Library…

Hi - thanks for the dog book suggestion. I think I will include it on my Web page, even though I haven't read it yet. Cheers, Martha

Hi! Happy Birthday!!!
I agree about the insane number of social apps, but I've already found that I check in here frequently - just because of all the library-goodness. It's MySpace that I never visit...
Have a great day!
