So the story goes that "Global Audience Spends Two Hours More a Month on Social Networks than Last Year" : On average, global web users across 10 countries spent roughly five and a half hours on social networks in February 2010, up more than two hours from the same time last year. While the U.S. boasts the largest unique social networking audience, Italian and Australian web surfers led the way for average time on site with more than six hours each in February.
I am just not sure I like that "two MORE hours" ....perhaps it is included in my normal hours as I just can't see how there are any more hours in the day....or did I miss something while I was spending all my expert time in meetings, conference calls, doing e-mail and working? Maybe it is a minute here and a minute there....that I can handle. I visit many social networks on a regular basis yet I never stay too long. Cumulative though of all my minutes... ok.....I've now talked my way into 2 more than last year....as afterall....last year at this time we didn't have My developerWorks!!!

Wouldn't any person/group work smarter if they were better connected? Is it the future of how we will work?
My developerWorks is part of what allows me to work smarter....it is the future and it is here today.
Sacha Chua, a relatively new member of IBM, gives a great example of why social networks matter. Le'ts make her enthusiasm contagious:
What makes you work smarter? What about in the future?

What do Bubbles, Psycho, Dilbert and Runnable have to do with "technical"? They are used to describe and inform ..and let's face it....entertain....which is the best way to learn.
Check out e-mail is soooooooo last week: to learn about Bubbles and Psycho ...and the benefits of Lotus Connections 2.5..... ( no fears...for those of us on My developerWorks as the team continues to enhance and upgrade we should see Lotus Connections 2.5 features arriving for us to use ....YIPPEEE - is that another technical workd?)
and what about Dilbert? Always a good way to make a point, check out Anticipating Problems
and then there is runnable.....I just like the word....say it a few times and you'll see why...runnable runnable runnable... ..now wasn't that fun? On the serious note: ever taken a java core on a Java 5 SDK and wondered why threads that should be marked as Runnable are showing up as Condition Wait? If so...check out this solution.

More and more information is arriving daily on My developerWorks ....how do I find what is of interest? I search on tags. Profiles, blogs, activities, groups, bookmarks - all can be tagged. It takes seconds to add them and if you forget, you can go back and edit and update.
So don't forget to tag or use tags....they are your best friend on My developerWorks.....
And with that...I will say "tag your it"
