Where are we starting from?
Who's here, what are their interests? Mostly research, mostly sabbatical, mostly Amtrak?
Where's my Powerpoint?
What to do
Get off the porch.
Conferences, professional organizations, affinity groups. Go to them, join them, become active in them. Go where the top dogs go and run with them. Or at least introduce yourself and say hello.
What is the Internet anyway?
Find a list related to your topic of interest. Lurk (just read what others are saying) for awhile, then dive in by posting your own thoughts.
Search Yahoo Groups to find people interested in what you're interested in.
Email your list of friends/colleagues and ask them for suggestions.
Google is your friend.
Impress your friends and colleagues with Google Alerts.
Share your ideas with Google Docs.
Organize your research with Google Notebook.
Stay in touch.
Ask questions, share answers.
Join, create a network.
Q & A
As time permits.
