Social Media Policy?

Clark Quinn

And, of course, this is my blog, for deeper reflections. I believe that if you find someone interesting, and follow both their blogs and their tweets, you can see what they’re tracking and then their reflections, and use them as a mentor. Other social media tools I use for specific things include Yammer, Skype, and of course dedicated tools like Google Docs of various sorts, Doodle, and more. So what’s your social media policy?

In 1998 blogging wasn’t yet a thing, and a whole bunch of old style document work has moved onto the Web — and has taken up webby characteristics — in that form. The task force’s web site uses blogging software.

I will certainly give credit to anyone who contributes in a meaningful way both in my blog and during the keynote (assuming this happens).
