Now that we have some Internet connectivity people are starting to use it, and for that I say, “Hurray”! However during MAP testing we are still experiencing a little bumpiness. This is due in part to our conversion to web-based testing. This just gives a chance keep improving!
I’ve had some requests on how to download videos from sites like YouTube or Vimeo so I put together this little video.
Wiki is a Hawai’ian word meaning “fast” or “quick.” As a technology platform, Ward Cunningham installed the very first wiki on the Web in 1995. That was two years before the word “weblog” was coined (and four years before that term was shortened to “blog”). Wikis predate Facebook and Twitter by roughly a decade. At sixteen years old, the wiki predates almost every other social media tool (other than email, of course, which historians of technology say turns 40 this year). Why then, in the face of rapidly changing technology — all the new bells and whistles and Web 2.0 tools — should we still use wikis?
Just a quick note: when you log into your blog you will have a bunch of pull down menus at the top of your page. For example, you can log in, then go to ‘Add New’ and choose ‘Post’. That will bring you right to the new post page. There are a lot of other navigational items in the pull down so explore and see what works for you.
Also, there are a lot of new plugins & widgets that allow you to customize your site. For instance, directly to the right of this text (at the moment) is a ‘Subscribe by Email’ widget.
Also, there is a great new Google Maps plugin. Check this out!
