At least I read the long article about e-mail—the readings for this Thing were particularly lengthy, perhaps because the things themselves (e-mail, texting, and webinars) are so lightweight? Methinks the medium doth protest too much—as I was preparing a lecture on the history of the Internet. So I worked in some facts from the reading, such as the date the first e-mail in the world was sent (1971), that I hoped made this extremely dry topic a little less dry.
Speaking of dry, here are the questions that the 23 Things people think I should be blogging on for this Thing:
- Describe how your library uses email. Has it improved productivity?
- Share your thoughts on online reference using some of the other Web 2.0 communication tools.
- Are you an active user of text messaging, IM, or other communication tools?
- Which OPAL or MINITEX Web conference (Webinar) did you attend? How was it? What do you think of this communication tool?
