#27 My gift

I don't think think that anything else should have been added. A person can only take in so much information, and then it needs to settle for awhile. But for my final posting, I leave you with Chad vader 8 from You Tube. If you have not watched Chad Vader you should start with episode one though!!

27 Things Reflection

Wow! Its been a long and arduous journey, albeit sometimes interesting and fun. I know there was plenty of help, but I was determined to get through it pretty much on my own. This program has definitely expanded my learning horizons, and know I won't look like a complete idiot when these types of technology come up in conversation. In addition, when library patrons have questions, I'll be much more equipped to answer their questions. Much of what we went over was new to me. I can see that libraries will start to incorporate some of this technology, not only for patrons, but for staff as well. I thought the program was fairly well presented, but had difficulty figuring out on the list, what numbers were associated with what weeks. Their was also not a way that I could figure out to view an individual progress log for myself, short of going into my email account and making a folder to collect all the webmaster emails that I received for each "week". This however was clumsy and they weren't always in the right order. I resubmitted week 3 because I couldn't find an email confirming this week. I guess I would like to see more training opportunities as new library-relevant technologies emerge, but it would be nice to have an idea of how much time will actually be involved. If I could go back in time I would participate again.


Read about podcasts, and chose to look at and found a library related podcast that talks about recent library headlines. Very interesting and that's what I added as one of my rss feeds. Here it is:

Web 2.0 Awards

I spent quite a bit of time checking out all kinds of stuff on the web 2.0 awards. Just a few of the sites I checked out: Pandora, 43 Things, Google Maps, Craigslist, cocktail builder, one sentence, fuzzmail, facebook, and my favorite, Farecast. I didn't really find too many sites that I thought would be great for KCLS, but knowing how to use Google maps and Craigslist is helpful because lots of people are trying to find places. I also get alot of questions about travel and that's where Farecast comes in. They list all sorts of predictions on whether or not to buy airline tickets now, or wait, whether prices are average, low, or high. It's a good addition to sites like Travelocity, and Expedia. here's the address to access Farecast:

Google Docs and Zoho, Google Labs

I guess you could say I found Google labs fairly interesting. I did check out the Trends section, but my favorite so far has been Google Notebook. I love that you can have basically paperless notebooks on whatever subjects you choose that you can add texts and pictures to as you're searching the web. For example, you could have a weight loss notebook that you could add recipes, exercises, recommended readings etc to at the time you find the stuff. No more going back a week later to try and find that article you read.
Google Docs and Zoho. I was pretty impressed with this. This is definitely something I could have used when I was going to school for group projects! It was so hard to get everyone together at a time that would work for everyone. Google Docs was easier to sign up for and was a little more bare bones. Zoho, on the other hand, offered more services and their format was closer to the traditional word processing programs, like Microsoft word, but it was more complicated. Definitely the one you would want if you had your own business. The great thing about both was being able to access your documents from any computer, it's automatically saved online, and you can have several people working on a document in real time together. Technology is getting scary.
