I'm doing a workshop to try and persuade some of our librarians that the internet is an information and communications medium. In a few cases it's tough sledding. In the end, I crack:
"How many of you have mobile 'phones?"
All hands go up.
"How many of you take photos with your 'phone."
Most hands stay up.
"Who's on Facebook?"
Half the audience.
"Who buys stuff online?"
Most of the audience.
"How many of you have gone on a mobile 'phone course?"
"A digital photography course?"
One of the people who doesn't use her 'phone for photography.
"A Facebook course?"
"An e-commerce seminar?"
Of course not.
"Don't tell me you can't use digital technology without training then."
