Week 9, Thing 23

Wow, I didn't think I would ever get here. At times I was frustrated, but I have learned alot about things I never knew exhisted. I especially liked Flickr and YouTube for fun things. For learning purposes I liked setting up and learning about Bloglines Newsreader. Also, just learning to blog was interesting. I don't think I could have completed his without Jennifer's help. She really deserves a pat on the back (or a raise) hahaha, She has been very helpful thru this whole process. Thanks Jennifer!!!

Week 9, Thing 22

I think downloadable books are a great new way to access books. I can see where this would be especially good for blind or people that can't see well enough to read. I could not get into Overdrive or Net Library. I did go to Project Gutenberg and looked up some titles. I listened to the guided tour by Overdrive.

Week 9, Thing 21

When going to some of these directories and typing in the name of a book, to find a review alot of garbage came up. Not sure if I was doing it correctly, but finally with Yahoo, I found what I was looking for.

Week 9, Thing 20

I love looking at things on YouTube. If you are down, just go there and look at some of the Shih-tzu puppies playing and it has to brighten your day. I am sure there are things on YouTube that would be beneficial in the library, but I have only used it for personally.

Week 8, Thing 19

I went to a few of the websites. I really liked some of the medical ones, and Pandora Radio, you pick out your favorite artist and they compile a list of artists and songs from that era. Really neat!!!!

Week 8, Thing 18

I can see where some of these web-based applicatons could really be of benefit. I like the idea that you don't have to be at a specific computer to view your documents. You also don't have to worry about if you have the corrrect software version in order to view your documents.
