Completing The 23 Things has been quite an experience! I have learned so much about the wealth of information available to us. I have also learned that you must be careful while surfing the web. Overall this is a good program and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of the internet. My plans are to re-visit some of the sites that I found interesting.


I took a look at NetLibrary being used in the Charlotte and Mecklenburg County library. It can be a useful tool to library customers. This is another way to keep pace with our competition.

Exploring podcasting was exciting. I visited the Kankakee Public Library site and clicked on Book Talks and there was a list of downloadable books. You can find something for everyone using this tool.

Thing #20

YouTube is a great site for users desiring to make homemade videos. I discovered some awesome videos, for instance, the video that captured a 100 passenger ship sinking near the Shetland Islands in the Antarctic Ocean. It captured the passengers being evacuated.

The Cap'n Crunch Commercial video from the early 70's was a nice discovery as well.

Thing #19

I found a site called Web 2.0 Award Zeitgeist. There were several sites that I think customers would use in libraries for example, Classifieds and Directories, Events, Shopify, and Peertrainer. Events is one of the site that I will re-visit. I was able to find local events in Baltimore County and Baltimore City.

Thing #18

The online word processor is fantastic. It has everything that you need to create your documents. The really great thing about is that it can be use by anyone and it can be accessed from anywhere.

Thing# 17

I added an entry to the Learning 2.0 sandbox. It was interesting to see how others are using this site to gather information, and share ideas.
