Although my library is affiliated with hers and we've been in the same room a few times and I'm pretty sure we have at least one mutual friend, I have never formally met Ellyssa Kroski, so after I read her excellent webliographic essay The Social Tools of Web 2.0: Opportunities for Academic Libraries (Link will only work if you have a subscription to ProQuest. I would have sent a link to the ALA/ACRL page, but guess what--the link's busted! If you want the article and don't have access, let me know.), I wrote to say hello.
Some of the delightful sites and tools from the essay that I want to explore include
- Antioch University New England Library Staff Training and Support Wiki
- University of Connecticut Libraries' Staff Wiki
- ThinkFree Online Office
- Zoho Office Suite
I've installed the Stumble Upon extension, but can't report anything yet. I'm interested in the two different office applications sites because currently I'm using Google Docs and Spreadsheets, but I just get creeped out having so much data in Google's not necessarily now but potentially someday evil hands. Then again, Zoho and ThinkFree seem very corporate, so who knows?
