January 6, 2008 at 3:52 pm (learning 2.0, library tech, social networking) (, , , )

I guess this is confession time. I consider myself both technical and mechanical,but you would never guess it by my approach to learning new stuff. At best, I get cranky about it. I look at it – get intimidated, close it down. Then I think about it, worry about it, and complain about it. Then I sit down and do it.

Flickr was especially hard because I have used kodakGallery for years. But then, all I was interested in was sharing photos. Flickr has a whole bunch of other things it can do like map where I took the photos, or add notes to the photos. Of course, I’m trying to learn as much as I can as quickly as I can – which isn’t really what most people would do . What surprised me was the sudden arrival of emails from  people that have put me on their contact list. I didn’t even know that was a part of flickr, until it happened. A pleasant surprise, but a surprise none the less.

I’ve spent a lot more time than the 30 minutes I am given to do this at work. But curiosity wouldn’t let me just skim this – I need to know. I’m actually heading back to flickr, but maybe after a nap

    I’m in the same boat. I’ve heard about this program, but never thought I’d have to learn it since I’ve used other programs just fine… but now I know better.
