  • Installation of Widgets and Badges
  • Things to keep in mind
    Complex = slow
    Flash and/or Javascript = complex
    HTML = simple (and boring)
    Wordpress doesn’t like Javascript, is ok with Flash & HTML
    Wikis tend to take anything
    Plain HTML pages will take anything
    Do it!
  • Sharing What you know
  • Creating a blog
    Stream of information
    Chronological
    Nice way to keep notes for yourself, while also helping others (yarn harlot)
    Labor intensive?
    Personal or Professional?
    Comments?
    Putting it all together
  • Wikis
    Single burst of information
    Updateable, but not as expected as a blog
    Embed just about anything
    Collaborative
    Group wikis can be fun
    Getting everyone to contribute – not so fun
    Easy to forget…
  • Widgets
    Widgetbox
    Create a widget from your blog
    Publicize the code
    Get community partners to put that code on their site
    Auto-updating content
    Easy way to get info
    Profit!
