- Read a great article about "Reader's Despair Syndrome," sent it to at least five people and posted in it my Gmail status bar before I was finished;
- Checked my Google Alerts for mentions of our Association, national programs, publications, and staff members;
- Monitored my Twitter feed for transit and other news of import;
- Updated various pages of a website I manage to reflect new reports and events that I found in Google Alerts or on Twitter;
- Created a shipment for an upcoming event where one of our field staff will present--yes, I have to select, pack, weigh, ship and track materials that go all around the country (and to Puerto Rico sometimes!);
- Discussed (with web manager) strategies for unifying and displaying all our staff blogs;
- Led a tutorial on Google Reader, Google Alerts, and Twitter.
The last part was my favorite. I love teaching, especially one-on-one, and I love helping people manage their information flow. When I was doing the tutorial I thought of a few more articles to send to my colleague. Here are the links shown in the image above if you haven't gotten enough!
