I've already tried out del.icio.us before, so the first part of the workshop was review (but I did add some new bookmarks).
Flckr was new--I'd heard of it & briefly visited the site, but didn't really know much about how it worked. I'm still a little fuzzy--it would have been helpful to have had us upload a photo as a group & practice a few other skills. Now, if only I could access my account!
Beyond the word processor
How some writers are using technology.
A review of "The Cult of the Amatuer" by Andrew Keen, who has a less than positive view of these technologies.

my first post
This is my first post.
But rather than have that wonderful first line as the whole post, I'm updating it with my thoughts on the blog/RSS workshop, which I liked very much. It was well organized. The tools were described, & then we were led through exercizes so that we all had experience with both applications by the end of the workshop. Much better than just showing us!
