Thing 23

I really enjoyed using the world cat because I was able to see how the library locates ILLs and how it all works. I really like the system and can see how it has become very successful. I also enjoyed "playing" in the sandbox. I liked how everyone could respond to the questions and add their own responses to everyone else. The only thing I didn't like about that was when looking at the sandbox it was impossible to tell who wrote what. I did not really like the RSS feeds because I prefer going onto all the different websites to view what I am looking for. I go online when I have the time to enjoy being online and speeding up the process doesn't sound all that great to me.

Thing 22

I do not really like the idea of downloading a book off the internet. I prefer to go to either a library or a book store and get the book. I find it easier to see the item in book format than listening to it. I did not like having to wait for the book to down load and then having to listen to it. I do not even like books on cd that much because I feel like I am trapped when listening to them. It almost feels like you cant go anywhere with them. I guess if you were to load them onto and ipod or something they could be taken places but I would much rather use an actual book.

Thing 21

This link to to a podcast interview of Benji and Joel of Good Charlotte. They discuss their new album, Good Morning Revival. They talk about how their new album has a completely new sound and how they have changed from the older albums.

Thing 20

I found this video on it is Good Charlotte performing live at TRL. This is one of my favorite Good Charlotte Songs. I love youtube because you can easily find all the new music videos that are out.

Thing 19

When looking through the Web 2.0 Award Winners I noticed a site called cocktail builder which looks pretty interesting. I would use this for our new years parties because it tells how to make all different kinds of cocktails. I'm not knowledgable on how cocktails are made and what is in them so this would really help.

Thing 18

I would use the collaborative features of Google Docs or Zoho when working on programing with our Teen Librarian. We would be able to cordinate information without actually being in the same place at the same time. It may also be easier because we work different hours and this way all of the information will be right there accessible to both of us. We will also be able to edit the information so that we both know exactly what is going on at that moment.

Thing 7
This is a picture of the spasmatic gysers in Yellowstone National Park. I visited Yellowstone about three years ago and it was the most beautiful place I have ever seen. I really enjoyed being there and experiencing it all. This picture brings back memories of that wonderful trip of a lifetime. :)
