What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
That my technical skills have not yet atrophied and that my colleagues are as amazing as I have always suspected. Meezes are fun and RSS Feeds are not. Most IT problems are still permissions issues -- and Yahoo needs to STOP hijacking my Feeds when I want them to go to Bloglines.
This style of learning is very well suited to me. We have more computers than people in our house, and I like doing a little bit here and a little bit there as it suits me. I could not do this at work, it is too thought consuming for the Public Desk (at least for me) and the team environment I cherish in our workroom is the opposite of the solitude I require in order to write a coherent sentence. That others have managed to do this in that environment truly amazes me, vive le difference.
