I said something in a presentation recently about a non updated blog being worse than not having one at all … so I’m trying to practice what i preach!
It’s been a funny (as in odd rather than ha ha) time here in ICT towers. My team has shrunk around me (I just carry them around in a suitcase), ending up with just me in the corner banging the ICT drum. I’m managing and rejiggling all of the areas they worked on whilst also carving out my own role. It’s also been a time for me to think about what my role in delivering ICT support should be. Whilst doing my pondering I came across this post from Lee @ CommonCraft which seemed to sum up what I was thinking.
It’s too easy to start making assumptions – assumptions about general awareness, about the number of people who really know what’s happening in “our” online world. Viewed from the comfort of our living room, bookmarked pages and social circles, the Web looks pretty small and awareness looks pretty big. It’s too easy to assume that people have heard about the tools and sites we use everyday. www.commoncraft.com/assuming-too-much-about-web-we-see
There’s such an amazing and active community of people with passion for ICT in the sector that it’s sometimes easy to forget that there are thousands of organisations who’ve not even got the most basic ICT set up, let alone know about and actively engage with web 2.0. That’s why I’m happy to just keep going, making sure that those organisations have access to information and resources to help them make the most out of technology.
So i’d better get back to work then!
