This is something I have been considering for a while but was finally inspired into action by the KIN Quarterly workshop which I co-facilitated yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed the day: the presentations, the member case studies and the networking opportunities.
(For KIN members, all the material presented at the workshop and more besides can be found in the Quarterly workshop site on the memberspace - this site will be being updated over the next few days)
During one presentation, I was reminded that during a visit to a member organisation internal forum the previous week, I overheard one person there commenting that they had learnt one new thing: they had never before heard of 'Social Bookmarking' but were now going to try it. So I wondered if there were people in our audience that also had never heard of Social Bookmarking. (Or some of the other tools mentioned such as RSS. When I posted a poll in the memberspace, I did get a few people saying they had never heard of RSS)
So first of all, a link to one of my favourite sites, The Common Craft show:
Social Bookmarking in Plain English
And for those of you who would like to have a go:
- To visit the KIN group, go to: http://ma.gnolia.com/groups
- To join Ma.gnolia.com for free, just click the link http://ma.gnolia.com/join
First, create a Ma.gnolia account (if you don't already have one). Then click on the 'join' button at http://ma.gnolia.com/groups
You can see how I am using Ma.gnolia (not very much - yet!) at: http://ma.gnolia.com/people
So have a go, and let me know what you think !
