A New Year, a New Things!

...On a Stick, that is. This newsletter (and the Archive blog) is the 2010 version of 23 Things On a Stick. Each monthly issue of Things On a Stick News will highlight at least two new Things--a tool, a concept, an idea, whatever is happening now--or offer a new perspective on a previous Thing. Each Thing will be introduced in the newsletter and then linked to the News Archive blog for more information.

In this version of Things On a Stick there are no blogging requirements, no deadlines, no checking in (no prizes either!). Just a lot of Things that will keep you up-to-date on how Web 2.0 tools can be used in libraries or at home for productivity, communication, organization, and more.
The only sign-up is for the newsletter subscription.

We do encourage comments on Things on this Archive blog. The 23 Things Ning is going strong, too, and is a great place for seeking support on the Things, asking questions, suggesting ways to use the tools, and other conversations.

Things On a Stick News is sent monthly to your email--or you can follow the Archives blog from the homepage. Whatever you choose, we encourage you to participate via the comments, by email, and by sharing what you learn with us and your colleagues. Please forward Things On a Stick News to library staff you think would be interested.

What a fantastic tool! I was just ruminating on how to keep track of all the different social media in use, and even more important, how to stay current with the nonstop changes in technology. I've added a direct link to this blog on the main page of my public website, to encourage more folks to subscribe to it! Keep up the great work.
