rss...sss

I really like the idea of being updated by RSS feed: however, I'm curious about the difference of an email alert vs the RSS feed.... for example, I get the dictionary.com word of the day by email--what's the difference on the RSS feed? I suppose if there were many words per day, i could get all of them as they were updated...

flicker and more

I was impressed by the flickr product..it seems much more sophisticated than snapfish, but perhaps they serve different purposes..I'll be exploring the utility of snapfish a bit more. I did see the advantage to sharing photos and things...exactly what differentiates it from myspace, facebook, etc. I'm not sure...maybe the mapping feature?

one question that arose was how many e-mechanisms do we now have to use to communicate? Keeping up with email is enough for me...maybe I have too much to do or work too much!>?!

another online playground: podcasts

My exploration of podcasts via PodNova provided yet another place to explore and learn. I definitely need to work on searching through podcasts to get to what I want, due to the number of channels available. One could really lose track of time....

value of blogging

Of all the possibile ways to communicate, blogging falls into the least favor with me. I'm curious about research that demonstrates the economic or social value of blogging: what's the ROI? WOuld the time spent managing a blog be better spent in other ways?

The game begins

I'm venturing into the blog world..a new medium and experiment.
