I'm all a Twitter about workstreaming!
I am super into Twitter now that Krista taught me how to link my Twitter account to my Facebook account. I'm actually posting a little too often but that is my favorite feature on Facebook so now I have two different places to update. I used to only have four people to follow and now I get to read all of your posts and I love it! I've already learned that one of my classmates went to my old high school hang out last night and that there are fans of the show Robot Chicken which I also enjoy. This is neat.
I like the idea of workstreaming using Twitter. I think I have mentioned before that my current job doesn't require this level of technical sophistication but I would imagine that if I were a web worker, this would be a great tool for communicating in a team. I would think that checking your Twitter account to see what your coworkers are doing would be helpful in many ways. You could gauge your progress in comparison to your coworkers and alert them to what you have been working on as well. It allows a small space for a quick reply to someone's tweet and the best part is you don't have to be at a stuffy office. I think it's great.
The one thing that I didn't care for in our readings (Connect!) this week was the section on virutal meetings aka conference calls. This may be just because I don't like talking on the phone but I think speaking to more than one person at a time sounds like a disaster. Zelenka points out that there is a productive way to conduct conference calls but it still sounds odd to me. Other than that I think the life of a web worker sounds appealing.
