I think this is an issue we'll all be wrestling with for some time to come, don't you?

I wonder if we are even more susceptible to this because of what we do for a living. I know I feel a pressure to stay current, so I can advise my clients.

Bravo for slamming the door. Did you consider tossing out some of the sites you're already a part of in your purging efforts?



Hey Drew —

Yes, I think we will be wrestling with this for a long while, especially since much of it is work related.

My big dilemma is: How do we filter out the new soc nets coming up? I'm sure there will be some great, innovative stuff out there. I'll wait for the WOM and see what others think --- the outstanding ones generate buzz fast.

I'm letting go of my Jaiku and Pownce accounts. They both offer useful features and have substantial communities, but I get so much out of blogging and Twitter. Jaiku and Pownce don't offer anything different AND useful to me.

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting. If you'd like to collaborate on a project, have writing/technology/creativity info to share, or want to say, "Hi," contact me at kgwritenow (at) yahoo dot com.
