Weekly Entry, Week 4

I have found that it's probably better to write my blog post little by little throughout the week and save it as a draft, just to more accurately log my thoughts, then post it on Sundays. Sometimes I can't even remember what I had for dinner last night with my schedule being as hectic as it is... This will work best for me...

FETC was fun... I wouldn't say it was worth the money it cost to send me there, but still fun. I think I didn't get as much out of it as I could because I am still finishing up my masters. A lot of the ideas I heard about at the conference are things I am already actively doing in my masters program. I think it would be more beneficial to someone who is not in school and needs to stay up to date with changing technology through some authoritative source.

I have often felt the way Cordell describes in the beginning of his article How to Start Tweeting (and Why You Might Want To)... I don't really know how to get started on Twitter, and I honestly haven't had any interest. I think his tips are great and they could really be effective in a professional setting, but I'm still not sold. I just don't have any interest in being wired to more than I have to be.

I hope I'm not in the wrong profession :P Maybe I'm just in the wrong time period...
