Bonjour, Int-Law!  FYI that the successful online course for
on how to use Web 2.0 tools in law libraries is back!  And
it's still free...:-):

I participated last year and had a blast learning about wikis,
blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Second Life, Facebook,
MySpace, LinkedIn, Ning, etc.

Our small groups chatted online every week at times convenient
for every participant.  I use what I learned in the course
every day.  And many of the participants are very active on
the various social networks.  They're great e-colleagues!

As y'all may recall, one of my goals was to find foreign and
international legal research uses for these Web 2.0 tools. 
Well, y'all can undertake the same quest!  :-)
