Thing 22: What Did I Learn Today?

Ahh, keeping up. Therein lies the rub. Actually, with the base of the 23 Things to grow on, it should be fairly easy. Before 23, I was annoyed, threatened and discouraged when I heard the phrase "web 2.0" uttered. Now I'm all over it. I'm thirsting for more and will be reading everything I can get my hands on, going to the relevant sessions at conference and I'm starting to help put a tech program in place for SLA MN. I'll definitely be adding new adventures to my blog.

I think the best way to keep up, however, is by talking to other people. People with different backgrounds, "younger" (a.ka. newer) librarians, and anyone who likes playing on the computer. Media specialists probably have a whole host of experts coming through their doors every day.

I keep thinking about the video of the guy with the book who had to call for help. Last month I was terrified of pushing the wrong button and ending up lost in cyberspace forever. Now I'm all about the pushing of the buttons. It's crazy how easy it is once you get the confidence to explore. I hereby resolve to continue the adventures of a knowledge nomad.
