This afternoon, I’ll be co-presenting a session with Steven M. Cohen (people, make sure you spell his name correctly – I’m just saying!) about blogs versus wikis. We’ll look at the Open Internet Librarian Blog and the Internet Librarian Wiki and compare what’s working and what isn’t for both types of tools. The session will be a bit improv, but here are the thoughts I plan to share:
Why might the blog work? Because it gives non-bloggers a place to post thoughts and it could be easy to audioblog.
Why might the wiki work? Because anyone at the conference or offsite could add content.
Personally, I think the tool that ended up working the best in this situation was Technorati. It was the one spot everything was pulled together.
Advantage: Technorati (view the IL05 tag)
I would also argue that we’ve had a lot of fun and socialness with Flickr. Of course, you had to know about Flickr, have an account, and know what you could do. I wish we could have done a whole session just on Flickr. :-P
Advantage: Flickr (view IL05 photostream)
