Here’s an interesting article that Bill Gates wrote for the BBC News web site, that talks about the skills one needs to succeed in any career.
Man, I am really enjoying having my own blog and wiki. It’s so addicting! And how I wish I had started a lot sooner. I can’t even imagine how much data I would’ve logged and shared if I had started sooner. Oh, well…it’s alright, the good thing is I’ve already started. No use on sulking over poured milk, ey…
A wiki, on the other hand, is a website that allows visitors to add, remove, edit and change content, typically without the need for registration.
I use both: blog for my journal
and wiki as my knowledge-base. =0)
OK, so here are my brief pros-and-cons thoughts regarding these technologies:
Pros: addicting, release for creativity, journal-like, forces you (as a by-product) to really think which will keep your mind sharp, writing skills increases, career-enhancing, allows you to share knowledge with others, empowers you to archive and organize knowledge and thoughts very well
Cons: time-demanding, addicting, must be focused on what posts you write, must be careful with what you say (read: employers)
As you can see, the pros outweigh the cons – this, of course, are my own personal thoughts on it. What I’m trying to say is, if used right, these two technologies can free you.
Until the next, ciao!
Whatta day, whatta day! I write my first post with a fresh outlook, hopeful that this blog will be a venue to share, be creative, and maybe come across career opportunities. =0)
So, HELLO WORLD!
