In the latest blog post on the Information Matters blog Martin De Saulles writes about the "close match between the core skills of library and information professionals and the core elements required to effectively deploy Web 2.0 and social media in the organisation" in his post he uses the diagram I've reproduced on this page to demonstrate how the elements of Enterprise 2.0 can be matched closely to the work of Information Professionals and asks "I am being too simplistic?"

What "competencies" do you need to demonstrate in order to be a "social media literate" Librarian?
The blogpost Top Ten (10) Social Media Competencies for Librarians outlines exactly what's required.
In my mind the first five are the most important, closely followed by points 6 and 9. But who am I to say, let me know what you think should be the Top 10 Social Media competencies.

I've known I've been really bad recently! I've not been posting as much as I should have but I blame moving house on my radio silence.
I'm back now and relatively DIY free so I hope you'll keep reading my posts!
Do you run with or without a watch? The last race I ran (Margate 1/2 Marathon) I completely forgot to bring my watch which meant I couldn't tell how quick or probably more accurate how slow I was running. I was also surprised to see how many people there weren't wearing watches I know because I asked a few people how long we'd been running!
Two weeks ago I ran the Margate 1/2 Marathon. This was my first 1/2 Marathon in more than 2 years and my first race since I ran the Mid Kent 5 miler. On top of that the last time I'd run at least 10 miles was in February!
Before I reveal my time I have to say this was a very well organised event. Taking place between Margate and Broadstairs the course takes in much of the Viking coast and though described as "undulating" it is quite hilly in parts, although this didn't detract from what is a very enjoyable race. I also realised how lucky I was to live near to such nice parts of the coast, even if they were very steep!
Given that the course was described as "undulating" I was delighted to get round in a time of 2 hours 1 minute and 38 seconds. I was running "free", more on that in another post, so would have pushed for the line If I'd have known how close I was to running under 2 hours.
The day also hosts the Kent Coastal Marathon so there was a good mix of people running the 1/2 Marathon and the Marathon although how people could go on to run another 13.1 miles I don't know! My next race is (I hope) the Faversham 10k followed by the Folkestone 1/2 Marathon, the Sittingbourne 10 miler and then the big one the Royal Parks 1/2 Marathon which I'm running with two of my work colleagues and raising money for Fight for Sight, it's not too late to sponsor us!
