Back Again

It's July and I'm renewing my efforts to become more proficient with Web 2.0. I'm going to re-do some the lessons that I didn't quite get this spring.

23 Things Extension

So glad to hear that this project has been extended. Hopefully, I will be able to finish it over the summer. Count me in.

Productivity Tools

There are some things here that are useful--the Calendar, To Do Lists, etc. For me, it is a matter of changing old habits. The online calendar works great--but so does the system I've used for 40 years--writing things on the pocket calendar that I carry in my purse. When I move to a Blackberry, then I will probably make more use of these things.

Social Media Sites--Not Worth It

I was not impressed with Mixx, Reddit, etc. Just a lot of people with more time than I have circulating sites. Newsvine looked a little more like something I might use. However, I am not inclined to use any of these at this point. They are down on my priority list of things to learn about Web 2.0. There is only so much time.

I think I will really use this account. It makes sense to me because it is not tied to a specific computer. I also plan to reorganize my school pathfinders using this. It will be a great way to keep track of them.

Wiki Wonders

I just posted on a wiki and found it very easy to do. I'm trying to think of how I could use this in my library. Hmmmmm.....

Document Organizing

I had never heard of ZoHo before. I'd heard of Google Docs, but didn't really understand it, so this was a good education for me. For some reason, I liked Google Docs better. It just seemed a little easier to use. I see the point of it, although, to be honest, I don't find it a problem to send an attachment or do anything of the things you do with Microsoft Word. It sure is interesting, though, about how everything we used to pay for is now available for free.
