Barb’s Field Notes: Moving to the blog-o-sphere
Hi everyone. I’ve been getting more feedback from the Made-in-Alberta primary audience (i.e.. you folks on this list) this Season than through the whole previous five years - combined! Thanks very much to everyone who has written or voiced their comments, suggestions, questions and support. Although it is taking me some time, I’m following up and incorporating your suggestions and comments. I’m taking it slow and steady. Made-in-Alberta is your communications network, designed for durability and adaptability for this transitional time in our history.

The growing interactivity with the Made-in-Alberta project indicates we are in line with other trends, locally and globally, both in terms of subject matter and the video technologies we are using to deliver it. I’m going to keep innovating and learn more about appropriate use of Web 2.0 utilities. I feel these could be great tools for us and will share what I learn. Some of RBCC’s clients have expressed interest in these tools so there is a professional development angle for me. But as you can probably tell, I also want to see who’s interested in a more free-form, multidisciplinary discussion about our new energy transition, and I don’t want things to get confused with the content of the Made-in-Alberta show, which is founded on the best and most well-respected, local expertise in the various fields (except for the odd “person on the street” comment). Finally, as all things new energy are moving much faster now, I’d like to set up a quicker way to share comments, information and experiences amongst our network.

I promised everyone a short, weekly newsletter before you signed on and intend to keep my promise. This MIA e-newsletter will return to a “digest” format. I’ll send out invitations and instructions to join me in the interactive discussion as soon as I figure out what the heck I’m doing. (It may take a while for me to do the research and get things set up. I feel the need to move carefully. I may even start blogging about trying to start blogging ...   :)

Please continue to send your feedback. This is your communications network. We’re continually working on it.
