Learn, and then share what you learned.


  1. Hey Laura,

    Looking at Q2, I wonder if we want a follow-up somewhere that asks what the use their different tools for (or how they use these tools). I use Diigo as a historical research database, for example. I use Feedly as my reader. I use Flipboard for mobile bookmarking and decide, on a case-by-case basis, if I want to forward something there to Diigo for long-term curation. It's kind a personal decision about how I actually employ these three tools (I could use them very differently or more broadly or even more effectively, I'm sure). This could just come out as part of the general conversation so maybe it's not necessary to modify one of the questions

    1. Aha, yes, that is what I was getting at with strengths/weaknesses, but asking how people use the tools is important. We could actually do a whole chat about tools... in fact, maybe we should do that, using Stacy's metaphor of the toolchest. But let me tinker with the question; I see exactly what you mean about the gap there.


If you are having trouble with the comment form, you can email Laura at with your comment, questions, suggestions, etc.
