Pre-season: Thirty Day Challenge

14 Jul

So, it’s pre-season at the 30dc for 2008 and everyone is busy getting things set up as Ed Dale and Dan Raine instruct. They’re putting out a couple of video “lessons” weekly that so far include using and setting up the Social Browser, Flock, using and setting up Google Reader, StumbleUpon, Twitter and other exciting tools that we’ll be using this year.

I’m enjoying so far and have finally managed to get Flock to not crash every 5 minutes. Have no idea what was happening (other than it seems Flock and Plurk don’t play well together). Flock has some incredibly cool features but there are also some features it’s lacking. Probably the nicest thing about it though, is that since it’s based on the Mozilla engine like Firefox, nearly all FF extensions work with it.

Anyway, not sure how I’m going to keep up with the 30dc this year as we might be moving in August. Just waiting to see how things go over the next few weeks. In any case, I’m going to work on it every chance I get. Hope to see you all there!
