Resurrecting the blog for ANZ 23 Mobile Things

After almost 3 years I've logged into Blogger and blown the dust off my poor old blog.  The reason? Despite  having several major projects at work and a REALLY major one at home (I'm having a baby in October), I've been swept up in the excitement of ANZ 23 Mobile Things.  For the first time in a long time I feel the need to  publicly say something longer than 140 characters about my profession and technological change.

ANZ 23 Mobile Things is a learning program based on the highly successful "23 Things" model that educated the library profession about social media and its applications for libraries/info mgt about 6 years ago now.  This time (in case you hadn't guessed) the focus is on educating us about mobile devices and their applications.  I'd say I'm familiar with about 2/3 of the concepts in the program, but there is always room to learn more!  I volunteered to write a feature post on mobile email and I've already discovered some apps that will make my inbox waayyy more manageable.

So if you're involved in the library, KM and info mgt profession and have even a passing interest in mobile technology I encourage you to sign up to the program.  Heck, sign up even if you don't.  It's an enjoyable, free opportunity to do some structured professional development, and you can't go wrong with that!

PS twitter details: my public handle is @Linda_Moore.  The program account is @anz23mthings and the hashtag is #anz23mthings.  See you there!
