Have you ever felt that technology and the internet are always one step ahead? Over the last few days I have dipped my toe in new waters and discovered a world of internet collaboration options. I have linked my blog content to a larger site that houses many bloggers all writing on a similar topic. It is like a clearinghouse for information on Communities and Network Connections.
As a participant I was asked to post a few things on my blog to help the searching and keyword capabilities. After some technical difficulties, I managed to upload my new features – check out the key words option as it is quite cool. You can see on the right side of my blog that it picks up words I use a lot and links them to blog entries on the subject. These are grouped on the Communities and Network Connections site which is bringing together content from all different blogs.
I am interested to see how this social experiment plays out. I am not sure about how it will actually ‘build community’ yet but I already found interesting information in the blogs sitting together by topic areas on the main site. Thanks to Nancy White for inviting me to play. Learning lots already!!
