Thing #23 Wrapping Up

Since this is the "Wrap up" I have provided the presents. Hopefully, the MP3 player is what is inside of one of these gifts.

Just simply having a blog is something I would never have done. I will admit that I am looking forward to customizing it and making it my own once the challenge is over.

I think Flickr will be used the most--I have used U-tube and will continue to do so. I think that once I get my MP3 player, I will also upload some books from NJ Listen.

I enjoyed learning about the RSS and creating a page with frequently used websites.

What did I not enjoy? Easy--thing #15--was a little boring to plow through. I see my friends using Flickr and U-tube, perhaps podcasts. The Library can certainly use podcasts and delicious to keep track of good websites. Lots of things to take advantage of.

Thanks for expanding our horizons--would not have done this if you didn't set it up as a Challenge.

Ciao for now

Thing #22

I downloaded Pride and Prejudice on my sons MP3 player. I did this one because I currently watched the movies--both versions and would love to reread the book. I actually had my son help me--but pretty uneventful.
This is a great service for people to be able to access books and listen while they garden, do housework, etc.

Thing # 21 Pod Cast

This is a link to a comedy podcast. Like U-tube, you are able to listen at your leisure. If you miss the broadcast of something, you can catch it on a "pod-cast"

Thing #20 u-tube and you

Here is a link to a u-tube video I looked at.
American Idol David Archeleta--I enjoy finding things on U-tube. Have used it frequently.
If I miss AI, I like to see my favorites on there. :)

Thing #19 Web 2.0 Awards

Well you piqued my interest with the music award winner Pandora--I definately will use that one--like having your own Juke box.

I also liked "Yelp" under City Guides and Reviews. It allows you to find good restaurants, shopping and whatever in many cities.

Lots of stuff to be used from that. Will explore further:)

Thing#18 Googledocs/zoho

That was really fun! I like the concept of being able to change the document without having so many copies of the old versions.

The spreadsheet in Zoho would be useful for updating the budget on the Diversity Committee.
In fact, that is what we are currently doing! Angela set it up for us to be able to adjust our spendings. Great tool.

Thing #17 Play in the Sandbox

It was fun playing in the Sandbox. Lots of cool things to do. As I said in the last Thing, this could be used if 2 or more people are working on a project together. Instead of so many meetings, they can work from the Wiki.
