23 Things

I've made it! This was fun and I'm glad to have had this opportunity to learn all of these neat things -- AND - on company time! Anyway, I'm not sure how many of these new sites I will visit/use but I'm glad I had the chance to learn about them. I especially enjoyed reading everyone's blog and enjoyed the creativity of staff members. Happy blogging!

#22 Almost Done

#22 - Explored Project Gutenberg and Net Library. Not sure I will spend a lot of time there. New to me is that you can download audio books/videos to my PC. This I will try in the future. However, I don't think I want to sit in front of my PC to watch a movie and I prefer to have a book in my hand rather than read from a PC screen.

I felt the podcasts were very helpful with explaining the different subjects in "23 Things." Some were very creative and fun to watch.

Exploring Web 2.0 Awards

Thing 19 - explore the Web 2.0 awards - this was fun to explore the different sites. Some of my favorites were Goowy, Be Green Now, and Pandora. All worth visiting. Also, I may visit Real Travel again since I am planning a trip to Florida in September and want to visit some new places in Central FL.

Web Applications

I love these web based applications! These applications make sharing documents so much easier because you don't need to be concerned about the version of the application. The docs and spreadsheets are new to me but I have been using the Google calendar. It is a great tool that makes my job easier. I'm hoping more staff will start using the Google calendar. So I'm writing this on the Google Docs web-based application and I believe I can send it to my blog........hmmm, let's see.

Quicksand Sandbox

Well, I'm not that impressed with the Sandbox Wiki and it is not user-friendly. However, I was able to link my blog to the sandbox wiki after some help from Kevin.
