New ways to access PEOPLE...we really are using everything!
The reading from this week was interesting because I didn't know how much communication tools were available that I wasn't actually employing. Twitter seems like a cute page, but like some of you, I also agree that it doesn't seem like a great tool. I guess since Facebook already allows us to update our status, I don't understand why we are limited to a certain number of letter characters in Twitter. I suppose if Twitter allowed us to do more, other than post geographical information and momentary updates, I might want to log into that website a little more often. I don't hate it, I just don't enjoy logging in to update.
I was reading about the Time Zone Dementia, and it's funny because I've never had to really deal with that. [Zelenka, p.152] The only past experience I've had online is when I had a Thailand epal, we would talk together at different times of each others day. But I can see how one could get the confusion of a change of time zones. My boyfriend works at a small software company based on helping businesses effectively manage their time. I'm bringing this up because I thought it was insane that their were like ten different clocks on one of the walls, representing different time zones. I suppose if we were all scattered over the USA, we should all be installing one of those applications on our dashboards.
Anyways, this week I will be using what I’ve learned about scheduling my life, and hopefully succeed at trying to webify my schedule. I really hope I can log on tonight and join in the chat at 9 pm. Hope to see you then!
