Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Social Bookmarking in a half hour

Still don’t get our del.icio.us page?

Don’t have a clue about social bookmarking, de.lico.us, etc? Have a clue but think it’s a waste of time? Try listening to Rachel Bridgewater’s explanation at a half-hour Sirsi/Dynix Institute event A Little Help from your Friends: Social Bookmarking.

I listened to this presentation on my MP3 player, which I do with all SIRSI/DYNIX Institute podcasts. Even without her slides and other materials, I found it to be a both a solid introduction for beginners and a refresher for people like myself who have de.licio.us accounts but haven’t done much with them.

Something Ms. Bridgewater said gave me a flash of inspiration involving de.licio.us, rss feeds and feed2js. If anything real becomes of it, I’ll let you know.

The social bookmarking session is available in the Institute’s archive. If you have a broadband connection, you owe to yourself to subscribe to these events and maybe even participate live. There’s just no excuse for missing out on great continuing education these days.

I realize this isn’t about government information at all, but it is a tool we can use to promote it.
