At the library, there’s something of a sea change underway. The use of new media, blogging and other Web technologies is slowly being introduced as part of the wider fabric of how we provide services.
The fun and hilarity comes in trying to explain and introduce things like blogging, twittering and Flickring to people with varying levels of enthusiasm, experience and investment in the process and technology of it all.
The scheme is being promoted under the title ’23 Things’
The idea of course is to be able to help people using our public terminals in much the same way that we can point people at how to set up Web based email or Facebook accounts, but I’ll be interested to see what further adoption occurs within the service over time, as well as how it is driven.
It’s early days, and I’ll be keeping a weather eye on it.
