- Were there any take-a-ways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you?
I was honestly surprised at my "curmudgeonly" attitude towards most of the Things! It appears I am already somewhat set in my information-digesting ways. I like to do things a certain way. I like to get my information a certain way. In the past when I've added new "tools" to do so, it's been born out of a genuine need for it. I feel like adding some of these Things to my "daily routine" would result in information-overload. I am a casual user of youtube and flickr, in that I turn to them for content, rather than posting my own content. All of the social media stuff rubbed me the wrong way... Digg, etc. It just seems like too much, and like there's not enough filtering to present worthwhile content.
So, knowing that I am apparently such a curmudgeon, I need to stay on top of things and have an open mind. I think that's the lesson here.
