Shortly into our discussion, we realized that the four of us have different skill sets. If the four of us had such different comfort levels, what about our members? For many of us, this is a brave new world -- one we want to learn about if only we had the opportunity. On the other hand, there are certainly those among us who feel very comfortable with certain technological applications that they could share with the rest of us. We seek those people!
I had an experience recently with a cousin who wanted to take copious notes regarding our shared family history. I kept telling him that there was no need to do that because all of the information was already on my blog. About the tenth time I referred to the blog he asked, "What is a blog?" I realized then that what we assume is a "common understanding" in this world of technology often is not. So I thought I would take the opportunity to give a brief introduction to what a "blog" is and how it is different from a "wiki." A very creative person addressed this issue by using the old black and white film of a Kennedy/Nixon debate.
