"Web 2.0" tools abound. Blogs, vlogs (video blogs), social networks, wikis, Flickr, YouTub, Twitter, RSS feeds, and much more. Many of these tools are free. This session will show you how to use these tools to keep up-to-date, enhance your research and collaborative work, network with colleagues and clients, and market your practice. Participants will receive handouts including links to the featured web tools.
