Summerizing My Thoughts

I just finished 23 things today. The ones that I really enjoyed were the image generator and the youtube commercials. Once I got into the program, I really began to understand what 2.0 technology was all about. I would never have explored this technology without 23 things. Things would get dicey when I did not understand what I was doing and would just want to pull out my hair. I would find myself calling the computer names because it was not doing what I had hoped it would do. I need a break from technology for a while. If a program was started maybe in the Spring, I might try it out.

Net Library

I found Net Library very confusing and not very user friendly. Overdrive would not let me create an account so that option was out. I would rather read a book instead of reading it off of my computer. I do not think I will be using Net Library anytime soon.


I just put a podcast on my bloglines from the BBC. I am beginning to understand how to subscribe to different RSS feeds. It takes some concentration to figure it out. Once I did I was able to subscribe with not too many problems.

With help from my 12 year old son, I explored youtube today. We looked at a Rob Zombie music video and also some toy commercials from the 1970's. I really enjoyed the commericals because they were toys that I grew up with and remember me and my three brothers playing with these toys.

Web 2.0 Awards

The site I looked at was for savings deals in the city in which I live in. I cannot see that as being useful for the library. We already have coupons out for the patrons to take. I really don't see savings deals as something the library should be offering to patrons. Other sites might have useful things that we can incorporate in our system but not city savings deals.


I just had the best time with Zoho Writer. I really had a lot of fun playing with the different color combinations by changing the background color and the color of the words. I can really see my self using Zoho writer for all of my word processing jobs.

Sandbox Wiki

I just added my comments to the SI sandbox wiki.
