Google Docs versus Wikis

I just got my daughter using Google Docs today. I'm so happy. As much as I am a proponent of Wikis and blogs, I must admit they're not the best option for everything. What I'm commonly finding when consulting with small collaborative working groups is that document formatting and functions need to be preserved. For example, it's much more difficult to use a Wiki for spreadsheet data. This is where I see the biggest benefits of Google Docs.

Anyway, my battery is getting really low, so this is it for now. Till next time.

Learning 2.0

Hello good people,

This is my first blog I've created outside of the workplace. I realize this is usually the other way around. Most people create blogs outside of the work, then later incorporate them in the workplace.

Anyway, now that I've created this blog, I intend to collect and post my thoughts on my profession: workplace learning.
