Thing 47

I had a hard time getting started do More Things. To tell the truth if we didn't get the extenstion I probalby would not have made it. But once I buckled down and got to it I really enjoyed it just like the first one. I definitly would do something like this again.

Thing 46: Webjunction Minnesota

I've been a member for awhile and I have done some free classes. I think think it a great site. Classes were very informative and you could do them as you had time.

Thing 45: Cloud Computer

Joining the cloud would have the advantage of being able to access your things from anywhere you are. Would be very good if you have to travel allot for work and you need to get your information. Don't know about the security issue but I think if anyone is going to get into your account they will do it.

Thing 44: The Economy

I checked out some the the sites and I liked MN Gardening and U of M Extension Garden Information, Fuel Economy. gov the best. As for the banking 2.0 I wouldn't use because my own bank as its own site that does most of that stuff.

Thing 43: Online TV & Video

I have never watched anything online TV before. This will be great when I miss an episode of NCIS. For me it wont change my watching TV habit it just that I will be able to watch what I missed. I also don't think it will change most people habits of
watching real TV.

Thing 42: Music 2.0

I have used internet radio before as for using pandora I don't know I'll have to see what happens. Maybe if I use it enough I might not be able to quit.

Thing 41: Mashup Your Life

I signed up for Lifestream and added all by accounts and it will alot easier to check in one place instead of each one separately.

Thing 40: Mashup the web

I don't know if this is what I was suppose to do is this blog but I did embed something from Walkable which is kind of cool. Would be nice if you go visiting you can see where all the places of interest are and that you could walk to them. I checked out Book tour and Bubblr. Book tour would be o.k. to check up on a favorite author and where they are going to be.


Thing 39: Digital Storytelling

This was so much fun!!! I used Smilebox it was so easy and fun. I could do this all the time. These would work good in the library to document and event and print it and have available for patrons to look at.

Thing 38: Screencasting

I started this thing last night as a read through it I thought I don't think I can do this. The more I thought about it the worst it got so I thought I'll try tomorrow morning and see how it works. Well, It did it. I used Screencast o matic because I thought it was the easiest for me. As you can see I didn't do anything hard. I believe this would be a real help to the library by showing how to use library web site and such.
