As I worked through this process, I realized that there are many sub-processes (such as managing my email!) This digital workflow is related to finding and sharing material online. I am trying to move most of my work into systems that can be scaled and managed through tools other than email. So, here is my Digital Workflow Beta.
1. Linked Twitter with Facebook: Selective status updates with #fb.
2. Forced myself to leave bloglines. It was my original aggregator and I don’t think I have even re-evaluated my feeds since I set it up in 2006. It had become quite stale. Moved to Google reader for the aggregator of blogs and some information that was coming into my email inbox.
The following functionality is appealing to me at this time. I will see how it works in the “really using it phase”.
- Sharing feeds
- Starring feeds
- Adding comments to some also
3. Continue to use iGoogle (.ca version with the old tabs across the top) for project management because I use so many Google accounts and forms and it is handy to have that set as my home page.
4. Linked Diigo to Delicious: Post to Diigo first because can highlight and annotate and add notes. It can also post to Twitter. Delicious has a larger userbase, but it wasn’t that much of a pain to create both accounts and have it autopost. (Yep, that is the best answer I have. I am forcing myself to learn these and am in the newbie-newbie stage.)
5. Create and Share Online (This is where I am not very organized. It is too easy to create a separate space for each collaboration or project.)
