The final IUL2.0 post!
This post’s soundtrack, “It’s Over,” is brought to you by the Squirrel Nut Zippers.
Overall, I enjoyed the program because seriously, how often does your boss ask you to blog OTC? I had the opportunity to play with things I’ve never bothered with before and I had fun working with my colleagues. There were some technical snags with a few of the assignments, perhaps because this was a borrowed program.
I thought I’d wrap up this post by citing how the IUL2.0 project impacted me:
- Blogs. “Finally!” the world says, “She can type out all of her rantings instead of running her mouth at me!”
- RSS Readers. What did I do before Bloglines? Oh right, waste TONS of time. Now I can learn an instrument and start that band…
- Social Web. OK, so the project hasn’t turned me into an extrovert (would a true extrovert enjoy socializing on a computer anyway??) but I have come to appreciate the usefulness of social networking sites for those who enjoy interacting with others of the species.
- Google Docs. No more emailing myself these silly grocery and music-to-get notes. Oh, and when I’m traveling the world and the greatest novel in the English language comes pouring out of me, I will sing Google’s praises whilst happily tapping away at a keyboard. Those internet cafes are going to love me and my pretty, pretty money.
For those who may be reading, thanks.
