Ok, so, I’m looking at setting up a number of team blogs, after having a play around with the trial one already created.
Currently, there isn’t a lot of interest in blogging. Why not?!?!
The idea of setting up these team blogs is to be able to record goings on in your department, team and own working life and put it out there to other people in and around the university so they can see what’s going on elsewhere.
What it would be is, ideally, the main blog (the Big Boss) would have team blogs stemming from him and from the team blogs, your own individual blog where you can record anything you want…does that make sense?!? Does it sound at all appealing?!
Personally, what I’ve found with blogging since I started working in ICT is that it pretty much is a place where you can talk about anything you like, where you can write about things going on with you, its fun, you don’t need a specific writing style, its personal…its you!
Its no form of contact or immediacy, they’re not supposed to be. They’re just so people can get an insight into what projects you’re working on for example.
It would be great to get all of the departments in the University involved. So people from god knows where in the Uni can read about what someone else god knows where is doing. I know it doesn’t appeal to a lot of people, but surely it appeals to some, right??
Please please please give me some hope!!!

What do you think?!
There was talk of mine and Nick Jackson’s blog being combined and made into one so that when and if any more students were to be employed, they could keep a similar blog and it would all be in one place.
I thought it was a good idea at first and then thought about it.
The blogs wouldn’t really be all that individual because they’d been put into one.
What about making a ‘homepage’ as such, and having individual blogs coming from that?!
I like it!!
Kind of like the Library Blog.
Now, departmental blogging, I think that sounds good too!
I’m going to see what everyone else in the department thinks!

On Friday I went to give a little demostration on Google Docs over in the Chancellor’s office to someone who worked over there and it didnt work out as planned which was a bit of a pain. So number 1 on the agenda is to find out why it didnt work and tell the lady I demonstrated it to, make a help document for sharing files and shoot myself because it was so embarrassing!
Number 2 on the agenda is to investigate the portal. David Raines may be starting me on a project with the Portal but first I have to complete a task in ‘Portal Demystified’.
And then on the student side, I need to kick my bum into gear and get my assignments written!
Practically living in the library in my spare time!!
The only problem…the heating is up and down like crazy…I need heat!

Well flyers are out for the Wireless Printing, they’ll be seen dotted about the library.
Fingers crossed everything goes ok!
