Friday 5: NECC 2005

Hi Everyone,

Long time, no Friday 5! I think I'm going to sporadically send out
Friday 5 lists during the summer as I'm just too busy these days. Here
are a few sites that I've picked up from that National Educational
Computing Conference which concluded today in Philadelphia. I didn't see
as many sessions as I normally have in past years, so I don't have a
slew of sites to pass on. However, the buzz at NECC seemed to revolve
around podcasts and blogging, so many of this week's list revolve around
those topics. In light of how podcasting, blogging and RSS feeds are
taking off, I am now going to try and add the Friday 5 to my blog and
hopefully I'll even attempt a podcast this summer. Stay tuned!

If you do a Google search for the woman's web portfolio mentioned in this article, it pops right up. I thought her site had a nice design to it, and it looks like it's done by a professional company. There are dozens of ways to do something similar, probably without spending a ton on a professional service.

Anyway, I don't think the content of this article involves rocket science. Most people in my field have already realized that having a "web prescence" is important professionally.

I think the next issue regarding personal information online is going to be how to remove yourself from certain situations that may involve details being online. Heck, it seems everyone is googling each other for more info! How much info is enough? And is should everyone be privy to all this information?
