SLA is doing "23 Things"

At the SLA Annual Conference, the organization launched "23 Things", which is a learning activity for becoming more familiar with web 2.0 tools and technologies. As of today, more than 400 SLA members have signed up to do 23 Things, which a goal of having 10% of the membership participate (approx. 1,100 people).

While I actually teach people about web 2.0 tools, I have decided to participate in 23 Things to perhaps learn more (hey, you never know) and to support SLA's efforts. In order to get through the lesson each week, a person is expected to spend 15 minutes per day on it. If a person is already familiar with the topic that week, then the person gets to spend less time on it! (And if a person gets hooked on a topic, well then that person may find himself spending more time on it.)

The first week was just reading and the second week is setting up a blog (which I already have several of). With the correct tagging (in Technorati and, I'll be able to follow the progress of other SLA members. Now that should be fun!

If you are an SLA member, please consider joining 23 Things. Learn a little and have fun, too!
