I know that with all of the social networking tools I use, it is totally a mix of work and play. Being allowed to learn and use these tools while at work has helped me to help people who come in -as well as make a quicker connection with them. And I know I haven't been slacking at work while this is all happening...on the contrary, I think it has helped me do more! Score!

As more people use facebook, twitter, IM, maintain blogs and websites and other cool new technologies, the lines become more blurred.
