Week 6, Thing 15

I read some of the articles about Web 2.0, Library 2.0 and the future of libraries. I did find it to be very interesting but since we are talking about the future no one can say for sure what will happen. All I know is that everything changes and so just as alway libraries will adapt. Besides we are always looking for ways to improve our services!

Week 6; Thing 14

I explored Technorati and claimed my blog. Did several searches for Learning 2.0 and the results were the same! I can understand why so many people use this site. It is helpful to be able to mark your friends and/or favorite blogs and not have to keep track of each one that you plan on checking on a regular basis.

Week 6; Thing 13

I listen to the the tutorial, didn't really get much from it. I then thought I would set up an account an explore del.i.cio.us to give me a better idea of all it had to offer. After going through the steps of setting up yet another account, it wanted me to install two buttons into the browser. I didn't think this was a good idea so I didn't finish with setting up an account. I don't see the point in adding these buttons unless I am going to actually use this site. I then decided to just look at some of the most popular tags. I can see why some people may really like this service, if they spend a lot of time surfing the net.

Week 5; Thing 12

So I played around with Rollyo and I am attaching a link to the search rolls that I created. Since I am really not a big web searcher, I don't really see the point in rollyo. Although I do find it fun to learn about all the things that are out there, I don't really see the point in this one.

Weeek 5; Thing 11

Library Thing is a lot of fun and a great way to keep track of books you have read. I can see myself actually using this site and keeping it update when I have time. For right now I am going to attach just a few of my favorites.

Playing with online image generators is so much fun. It was really cool to see all the fun stuff you can create. I could have spent hours playing!

Week 4; Thing 9

This subscribe process on Merlin was not easy. I would have thought that the button at the bottom that says "SUBSCRIBE" really would allow you to subscribe. Good thing my very smart co-worker could help me figure this one out. I look forward to reading all the feeds on the Merlin site when I have nothing else better to do.
