IL05 – Day 1: Jessamyn West and Jenny Levine

Jessamyn West: Flickr, Tagging, and the F-Word

Gave a great introduction to Flickr

Some highlights:
- other people can add tags to your pictures (if you allow them to do that)
- Tags – click the word, you get your tagged pictures
- Tags – click on the globe by the tag word, and you get everyone’s tagged pictures
- Explained the coolness of Hot Tags – last 24 hours, last week – shows what’s going on

Jenny Levine:

intro to del.icio.us

del.icio.us/Jayhawk – Jenny’s bookmarks

These bookmarks are things other people are finding interesting and important

Find others with similar interests

- using del.icio.us at the reference desk
