For the umpteenth time I am starting on a new venture on a new platform.
A decade ago I stuck to what I knew and wouldn't budge. I waved good-bye to contacts as I continued to blog in Diaryland while everyone else moved over to LiveJournal, Blogger and Wordpress. I even stuck with Friends Reunited and MySpace.
Everything I stumble upon I try.
Anything new I sign up.
Already I can imagine Google+ as a one-stop shop, a kind of Personal Learning Environment (PLE) even like the OU VLE in that is draws together so many of the services and tools I already use.
Managing and engaging with people according to their 'sphere of influence' rings true too. I've never felt comfortable with my several selves in Facebook.
Picasa I swear by for photos and screen grabs. The galleries here feed images into all my blogs.
I use but need to master dropbox.
I have a blogger blog, but I have become so engrossed in Wordpress I am truly reluctant to have to master another 'instrument' as it were.
It is not my desire to play every instrument in the orchestra, the wind section with a bit of piano and guitar for recreational purposes will do.
That's an interesting thought. But does Social Media have the equivalent of a score? I am not and never will be a programmer.
