Thing # 23 - Summarize Your Thoughts

Wow! So many things there are!!! I have to say my favorite discoveries were Flikr and RSS feeds. I can see myself using these things a lot. And of course Youtube was interesting! I think this has made me want to keep up on all the technology out there and keep learning more. I think that this was a great discovery program and I would like to participate in others if they are available but I think it would be better if it was offered in the winter after the holidays. It was hard to find time during the summer with people being on vacations. Overall it was a great learning experience for me and I was able to teach some things to family members that did not participate in the 23 things.

Thing # 22 - Overdrive and Net Library

I explored Overdrive and did find some titles I like. I am not a big fan of audio books myself but I can see where this is great for those who enjoy them and those who have high speed Internet.

Week 9 - # 20 Youtube

I found this DIY video on how to make paper beads. I think this would be a good link to use on the YA site.

Week 8 - Thing # 19 Web 2.0 Awards

I explored yelp and Pandora. Yelp is a city guide with reviews of restaurants, shopping etc... I think this is a great tool for people going on vacation. It would also be good for people who are new to an area as well because it includes maps. Pandora is a music site that was created by the Music Genome Project. You can create a free account that lets you create your own person radio station and sample music unlike other sites it let's you here the whole song.
