I watched the videos on the networking sites hoping to find some value in LinkedIn for me. I joined about a year ago and I have to say I am underwhelmed by it. The people I hear from are usually from my past and are not very helpful to me. I suppose if I were more active it would increase the effectiveness of the site, but for now the vaolue escapes me.

The abiltiy to become more familiar with blogs and blogging is what interests me in exploring Web 2.0. Several of my friends are writers who maintain blogs and I have always been curious about them. I think there are ramifications for other interests of mine as well. For instance, it might be interesting to blog when I travel (currently I create a handwritten journal which is a nice souvenir, but not so easy to share with others.) I am also thinking about blogging about coaching. It seems it might be a positive way to train my newer coaches.
