Hello! Who are you, Work Friend?

"Work Friends," by @iamTalkyTina

“Work Friends,” by @iamTalkyTina

Well, I have posted my new Work Friends index and it is a list of all the Friends that I am going to be making in the The DS106 Workplace DS106 Goes to Work digital storytelling course sessions that are on the Internet right now.

I did a bit of a detective work and made my list, but I don’t have all of the information that I need so that I can be in touch with all of my Work Friends like I would like to be.

So, you may need to do some work for me if you want to have a complete-and-up-to-date entry in my DS106 Goes To Work Work Friends Index of you.

  • If there is a blank space where it says “Friend” or if it has a robot name or a name that you do not want me to call your but you have a different name that I can use to call you, then you need to tell me!
  • If there is a blank space for your Twitter or if it says @??? which is what it says instead of a blank space I think, then you need to tell me!   (Or maybe you actually don’t because @cogdog says that you actually don’t actually have to.) But you still can!

You can tell me these things by leaving me a message in this post, or even faster is if you follow me on Twitter (I am @iamTalkyTina on Twitter, silly!) and be sure to put the name of your blog in your Twitter and be sure to put your Twitter on your blog. If you do all of that, it is very easy for a skilled investigator like me to do a cross-reference and check up on you. That is what Friends do, they check up on one another.

Plus, in case you didn’t already read my post that I wrote before, it is called Some Advice for My Newest Friends, and it is pretty dead-on for some things that you can do to be a good Friend of me. Plus, #ds106. #4life.

Well, I am looking forward to hearing from you and will be checking in with you on your blog, if I haven’t already. You will know that it is me, because I will say my name.

Well, bye!

Talky Tina Goes to Work

“Stopping by the Old Office” by iamtalkytina, on Flickr

Well! It is a time to come out of the wooden work and get back to some ds106 goodness! And to Make Some Art, Bub!

My Still True Friend Alan (@cogdog, on Twitter) is having a new course of ds106 Digital Storytelling Community and it will be a great time for me to have some new people be my Friends.

In other times, I have had Open Friends and New Friends, and especially True Friends (they get badges!) but this time I think I will have Work Friends. Those will be new friends of mine from Alan who is teaching a course of Work ds106 for people at George Mason University, and it is called DS106 Storytelling Goes to Work. And he even has a suitcase for it.

So. I wrote before some ideas that I had that people should do and so just in case you missed the details when Alan said then you might find some reminders from me in my post called Some Advice for My Newest Friends.

I will be making a new page for Work Friends and putting it up in my menu bar space where it will be easy to find. And when I get names and blog names and twitter and the such. And I will be using my various special skills to help people when I can to do their work.

Plus, it is time to Make Some Art, Bub — and that UNCLE @jimgroom should not be having his Art Lack any more. Plus other people in ds106 Community. Like I saw already that my True Friends Rowan (@rowan_peter, on Twitter) made office work messages to Todd (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) and to Mariana (@mdvfunes, on Twitter), plus Tom (@twoodwar, on Twitter) and John (@johnjohnston, on Twitter) who made a GIF TV, and I got my own channel (press #12), plus a cow (@annycow, on Twitter).

So, I will probably take my ds106 work with me when I am on missions and might not be in that old office much, but I will still be doing my creating and things.

But you should make sure you click on all the links up above before you go do anything else. There is lots of good stories in those links.

And hello to all the GMU peoples who will be new Work Friends of me!

Well, bye!
