Learn & Play at CML

Here's the webpage that lists all the "23 things" staff at CML are supposed to do in order to learn about new and emerging technologies. It's a great idea; we'll be better equipped to help customers when they have questions about these things. Some of the things are not new to me, some of them are ones I've dabbled with before, and others are totally new. Lots to learn, but such a great exercise!

Thing #7: Face your manga

Simple way of creating an online image of yourself. I think my cartoon self is more attractive! But anyway, that's not the point of this post. We're supposed to blog about new technologies. This website www.faceyourmanga.com is indicative of a popular trend in creating a second self online. But what is more interesting to me is this desire to connect online via facebook and twitter and www.meebo.com
Just to name a few. I wouldn't have guessed that I would dig all these ways to connect, being a hermit of sorts...but they really do expand your world in a non-intrusive way. But hard to find time to keep up with the world when you have a 5 1/2 month old to care for!
