Gopher Servers, is email really slow? and other changes
Posted November 17, 2010on:
Yes, it’s always all about change for media specialists and online instructors. There is some discussion in blogs about the need to change how we do our state media conferences. Change is good, new ways of reaching members and prospective members are needed, but I agree with Doug Johnson’s posting in his Blue Skunk Blog Nov, 11, 2010 (A follow-up to the fading conferences post…). F2F is important, fun, and essential.
A lot of tech changes made the news today; Facebook is offering more services including email; According to the Wall St. Journal, Facebook believes their services will be more fun and valuable. Just yesterday I described Gopher servers and the early web to a University student; she couldn’t imagine such a thing.
Should I get a Nook? Sony-Reader or Kindle? The discussions remind me of the Winnebago/Follett automation debates and decisions in the early 80’s.
Change is always with us. Change is fun. Change keeps us on our toes.
