According to Wikipedia, fossicking is a term found in Cornwall and Australia referring to prospecting.
“This can be for gold, precious stones, fossils, etc. by sifting through a prospective area. In Australian English, the term has an extended use meaning to rummage.”
My engagement with the social web is akin to rummaging but through trusted networks I do find rich seams of resources and opportunities.
Recently (thanks to Diigo) I have rummaged through:
This morning (thanks to Stephen Downes) Crocdoc and Osmek.
Of late I have not been visiting Twitter or Facebook but know that they are there. I have started to use LinkedIn much more and have joined some new groups: ICALT, Sport for Development, Sports Performance Analysis and World Class Athlete Development.
Fossicking is a very popular activity in my village. It is an old gold town and there are hidden treasures. It seems very apt that I should be rummaging around too!
