The terms "Blog" and "Blogging" are becoming as familiar as "Google." This program will cover blogs from the basics to the complex--soup to nuts!

Our three panelists will provide the basics on blogs, such as: What is a blog? How do you create one? Software? Hardware? What's a feed? What type of committment does a blog require? Why blog?

We'll also discuss the "deeper" aspects of blogs, such as the impact of blogging on information science/information architecture, institutional blogging, blogs and personal knowledge management, the use of blogs for research, and blogs as a method for information collection, categorization, and dissemination.

Enjoy an evening of great food, great networking opportunities, and learn more about this great topic. If you haven't engaged your brain since the fall, now is the time.

Did we mention? There will be plenty of time for our panelists to answer your questions.
