online professional development

As you’ve noticed, I haven’t blogged much this summer. Been out of town or just catching up with friends via MySpace. Now I’ve also created a del.icio.us network as well as an account in Facebook. I was mainly convinced to join the latter as a means to be part of the AoIR group, but in past few hours I’ve also found a group dedicated to the Oxford Internet Institute summer program.

Having resisted social networking sites for so long, I can now see Facebook as a place where I can do some of the same academic conference networking I’ve done in person and perhaps make even more international contacts as I prepare for my summer program and the impending job search!
