The resources shared about Pinterest during our recent webinar are worth diving into.
I’ll admit that I had not heard of Pinterest, the latest trend in online photo sharing, until a couple weeks before our webinar this month. My extremely brief investigation told me that Pinterest took the photo-sharing website concept (like Flickr) and added some new ways for users to organize and display their image collections. My colleague Jennifer collected some links about the tool and posted them to WebJunction in anticipation of the April 10 program. After having lived through so many of these launches and trends in online media, I have learned that the most interesting part for me is to watch all the creative “ants” who descend upon a new web application, and work and play with it, poke at it, stretch it, until they discover whether they find it useful (or fun, or both). Then they share their discoveries and their ideas with the rest of us, who then just copy what they already figured out how to do.

“We have made leadership into something bigger than us, something beyond us. We have made it about changing the world.”
