Inspire. Do.

I found this Inspirational Image to be both interesting and "spot on." Darren Draper share a few others, but this one really resonates with me and a post I shared a while back — Stop Lurking and Do something! Blogging for me, is something that I decided to do a while back as a result of this — knowing is one thing, doing is something else. I think our… Continue

Study: Social networks may subvert 'digital divide'

Social networks like Facebook and MySpace have reputations as time-sucking procrastination tools, but a new study from the University of Minnesota says au contraire.

Social networks build beneficial technological, creative, and communication skills, the study says, leading the researchers to actually describe social networks with the adjective "educational." Who knew?
