Friday Finds: Tech Tutorials

This week brought two helpful resources to my tech-challenged self.

First, I present David Pogue's New York Times article, "For Those Facebook Left Behind." Some people will surely find it too "basic," but the article does provide a useful, simple overview of major social-networking sites. "You may find absolutely nothing of value to you in these sites," Pogue writes, "and that’s fine. But isn’t it better to make that decision now that you know what you’re ignoring?"

Second, Jane Friedman has assembled a lengthy blog post titled "Ultimate iPhone Apps for Writers: 30+ Productivity & Creativity Boosts." As I mentioned in our latest newsletter, I finally jumped aboard the iPhone bandwagon last winter. I'm still getting to know the "apps" that are out there, and this post is one I've bookmarked for future reference.

Have a great weekend, folks. (Oh, and in case any of you are envying me the temporary "summer Friday" freedom from the office job I also referenced in the latest newsletter, envy me not: Since we had Monday off for the Independence Day holiday, everyone in my office is expected in today.)
