Hi there everyone, especially those of you just starting at SLAIS. If you’re coming here after meeting someone from ASIS&T at the LASSA orientation on Wednesday, thank you very much for following up the face to face into the digital. I’m not sure that makes an entirety of sense, but let’s roll with it.
ASIS&T@UBC’s most visible function throughout the term is running our Cool Tools days in which you (yes you!) get to tell your peers about the cool digital tips tricks and tools you use. You can also come and just absorb information if you want. (Check out some notes from previous Cool Tools Days on our wiki.) We haven’t scheduled our first Cool Tools day of the term yet but we’ll be doing that at our first meeting.
That meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 12 from 12pm to 1pm in the Trail Room and we hope to see you there. Also, we’re on Twitter @asistubc where we’ll try to keep you informed as to what’s going on.
And what better way to celebrate time off from classes than by updating the blog? A recap of our November Cool Tools Day has finally gone live, and if you check the Minutes page you’ll see they’re now up to date.
(Incidentally, if you want to see the minutes of the Executive meetings, you can IF you’re a member. Let us know and we can get you all the sekrit documents about our organization your heart could desire. Or you could just search the WikiLeaks cables. I’m sure we’re in there somewhere.)
Speaking of WikiLeaks, if you’re interested in some links to good writeups on the ongoing drip, or any other information technology issues that have been catching our webmaster’s eye, you could do worse than checking out our ASIS&T@UBC linkblog or following us on Twitter @asistubc. Consider it an Xmas present to him.
ASIS&T@UBC now has a twitter feed: @asistubc. We aren’t following you yet because we don’t know if you’re part of the hivemind yet. We’re very sorry. Follow us and we’ll try to keep you informed about interesting infotechy stuff that hits our feeds. It’s set up so our linkblog pings Twitter when a new story goes up there.
(You know about the linkblog, right? It is filling with links to the aforementioned cool infotechy stuff, submitted mostly without comment. Recent posts show up in the sidebar here on this page.)
And if you tell us about stuff that’s even better. All getting to use Twitter for conversation instead of just broadcasting.
