They were aghast when I said I read blogs, used Facebook and Twitter. None of them knew what RSS was, or how it could help you manage the stream of data.
One colleague said “Well, I don’t see how you manage *your* email. You must have hundreds of addresses.” [I run the steveellwood.com, ellwood.org.uk, cromartycoastguard.co.uk domains, and several others, and post from whichever one is appropriate].
I explained I did them all from one mail client – which was my gmail (OK, Google Apps for Your Domain email, but I didn’t feel like quibbling); I’m fairly certain they didn’t believe me. *I* felt like crying.
There has to be scope to offer some easy training to peers; I’d happily do this pro bono.
Never mind a Windows 7 party.
Anyone ever fancied running RSS and gmail parties?
