learning how to use every trick in the (online) book
September 6, 2007
The Irish Independent has a piece featuring my good self, Claire at Gingerpixel, Jason Freid and Krishna De on web applications for business. I had to think really hard when Marie Boran asked me to talk to her about this because so much of what I use has been seamlessly integrated into my work and my initial reaction was – I’m not a tech person – well, it appears I kind of am. When I did reflect I realised that I use the following on a daily basis
My website and blog
Online library at the University
Endnote – particularly its ability to download searches and bibliographies from the web into my library
Meteor text messaging online
Then there’s Flickr which I use from time to time and do newspapers count if you don’t pick them up via RSS?
I still haven’t taken the leap to Facebook or MySpace and I don’t have a Twitter account – I’m ambivalent about them and maybe I’ll write a longer, more considered post some time about my ambivalence.
And I’m also sure that as soon as I post this I’ll think of a bunch of other applications I use that I take for granted…
