Today we had our celebration to mark the end of 23 Things. Helen and the 23 Things team provided some yummy cakes and biscuits and I managed to nab a cup of tea – a lovely way to spend half an hour with colleagues. We had a bit of a discussion between us about what we had thought of the program and overall the feedback was positive (this may be due to the fact that it was a celebration of the project and if you didn’t enjoy it even the prospect of free food may not have lured you in). Some felt it was really helpful to have the weekly sessions so that help could be given when needed. I would have liked to attend the sessions but unfortunately didn’t manage to get to any but the first one because they fell when the bat tower is open to researchers and we were overrun with them last term! When I did have any queries I emailed Helen and she was quick to respond but it would have been nice to get an idea of how other people were getting on (face to face rather than virtually).
I haven’t finished all of the 23 Things yet but I think I will carry on with the ones I’ve missed out but so far my top three have got to be:
1. Blogging and Google Reader (I’m lumping these together because they’re both about blogs)
2. Twitter (turns out there are loads of Archivists on Twitter!)
3. Dropbox (this is the one which will be most helpful to my day to day work)
But there are lots more of the Things that I will be using in my work in the coming months (e.g Evernote, Diigo and Screencast-o-matic).
Oh and guess what… I won a prize! (Turns out some people have actually been reading my blog.)
Watch this space for the remaining things…
