Web 2.0 and morale at work

Do you remember the joy and excitement of starting a new job? Fresh and alive with possibilities of what you can accomplish as you prove your value to yourself and your company? You're new and feel the isolation of your newness. What to do?

Sasha Chua created a slideshow on slideshare that offers the tools of Web 2.0 as a way to avoid that lost morale. Not a panacea, just a practical application of gen Y knowledge and common sense.

Voki your voice!

Thanks to a "tweet" from Madame Krause (@diannekrause) I discovered a very cool tool at Voki is a cool tool that allows you to create an avatar and add your own audio file. You can embed the resulting project in your web page, blog, myspace, and many others. Here's my initial "voki" created as an introduction of me and, I admit, a pretty good first attempt.

Now I need to figure out how to eliminate the commercial that's below my Voki the way Madame Krause did. Moving on to lesson #2!

Blogging Blackmail

Okay, I have to share this. Got this as a tweat from @TeachaKidd who posted it on her site. It's just too cute. I have teenage nephews/niece and my granddaughter just turned 10. Feel sure I might hear this from one of them sometime soon.
