Internet Voyeur

Stephen Abram of Stephen’s Lighthouse has suggested a definition for an Internet Voyeur:

Definition: An Internet Voyeur is someone who is aware of the tools, sites and concepts of the new ways of web ecology but hasn’t really experienced them personally. They’ve read about blogs, maybe visited a few; they’ve heard about, for example, MySpace and The Facebook, or del.icio.us and Flickr but only understand what they look like from afar and on an intellectual level.”

I must confess that I may fall in this category. Yes, I have a blog (which I don’t keep up to date very well, but I’m trying) but I have yet to really play with things like del.icio.us, Flickr and My Space. I think this will be a mini-project of mine over the next while: to start using the technologies that so many are heralding as things for libraries to consider. It will help me get a better feel for what the students use and whether it’s worth all the hype.
