On Friday, March 17, we had a Show and Share session for those librarians using blogs and RSS. Ten people got together in an informal gathering in the SEL to trade their expertise and results of their experimentation with these technologies.

Rhonda McGinnis led off by demonstrating how to add mini-polls and drop-down menus to a blog using Bravenet web tools. Rhonda provided great handouts which described the processes in detail.

Michael Samson teamed up with Veronica Bielat to demonstrate Audioblogger. In a live demonstration, Veronica called in an audio blog posting to Michael's blog. Michael then titled it and published the post.

Michael also showed the group how to request new feeds ("channels") in Pipeline, and briefly outlined the use of ClassCaster, Onfolio, and Microsoft's Live toolbar.

Mike Sensiba concluded the session with some tips on using Bloglines. He first demonstrated how to send another person a list of your subscriptions ("Tell a Friend"). Then, he showed how to navigate to the original web postings from within Bloglines. Finally, he discussed creating an email subscription to receive listserv content.

The group also discussed the relative merits of various forms of media (written word vs. audio vs. video) and compared reading information via a feed reader vs. via email.

Just one clarification on Audioblogger–When you’ve called in and recorded your message, you can simply hit 1 to post the voice message. You don’t need to actually go into Blogger unless or until you want to add a Title or other text explanation for the blog message. It’s a subtle thing but important because one of the main ideas of Audioblogger is that you can still blog even when you are away from your computer.

Enthusiasts will spend this week pointing to the tree.
Being able to share the album from our engagement photoshoot.
Unlike cheating when your significant other lives down the block, cheating in long distance health
clubs almost ALWAYS go on longer than they should.
It is an opportunity to learn something from you, too.
