I downloaded a book from netlibrary, transfered it to my mp3 player, and listened to part of it. I also did 2 other learning 2.0 things. So I have done as much of the lessons as I am going to. Now on to the last lesson.

The Monkees are back on tv.

Saw my parents today. Also ran errands.

One of the learning 2.0 tasks was to blog about technology. We got new
databases at work a couple of weeks ago. I think out patrons will like them. We
also got ebooks. I downloaded a hopilong cassidy movie for my Mom.

Then it’s on to bloglines. It’s a great way for me to keep track of  my
rss feeds. I added a lot of feeds in the last couple of weeks.  I didn’t
know about feedster and some of the other rss feed search engines. I also like
mybookmarks to keep my bookmarks with me.

I played around with more image generators. I also went ahead to online word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation production sites.

As I said before I created my LibraryThing account a few weeks ago. I finally figured out how to use rollyo
today.

I made my own practice wiki.

It was national blog day on Thursday but I didn’t have time to list my fav
reads.

There was a great article about Library 2.0 in
Library Journal this week.

4 day weekend this weekend after my 6 day workweek. Went away overnight on
Friday and saw my family today.

Yahoo! Avatars

Week 2 for the Learning 2.0 you have to start a blog. check. So I decided to go ahead to other things (since I am so impatient). I already have a flickr account. But I didn’t know about flickr toys. So I played with one and it’s on my flickr account and at the beginning of this post. I also made a Yahoo avitar. Which I think counts as a 3rd party image generator

I already also have a bloglines account and have added library and news related blogs (among others). I want to learn more about rss feeds though.

I also jumped ahead and created a LibraryThing and Rollyo account. I added a link to my LibraryThing catalog in the sidebar. I like LibraryThing but have way too many books to catalog them all. So I decided to catalog the books we are reading for my book group at work. I want to add reviews to it sometime. I’m not sure about Rollyo yet. I’ll have to play around with it more.

I also already use del.icio.us on my blog. I just started using techorati tags in my last posts. I finally understand del.icio.us. But Technotati I still have to learn about.

That’s as far as I’m going to get this time. Youtube is on the last week of the program. I love that site!

I like the new beta versions of yahoo’s photos and mail.

I also downloaded Microsoft’s Live Writer Beta. It’s ok. I still have to learn how to use it. Plus it doesn’t allow you to edit your template. Maybe in the future? I like wbloggar but it seems to not be around any longer.

I added some things to the side bar of this blog.
Work has been keeping me busy. The summer stuff is finally over. School is back on Monday.
I had a great fouth of July weekend.
I went up north overnight.
I went to a phoenix mercury game
I can’t beleive that mtv has been on the air for 25 years. We only got it in our house in 1983.
I can’t beleive pcs are 25 years old. I learned on TRS 80s and Apple IIes.
The Internet is 15 years old. I jumped on in 1995.

I know some about blogs and rss. I just spent some time getting my bloglines account organized. But I don’t know much about wikis, podcasts, etc. So I am going to follow along with Charlotte Mecklenburg Public Library’s Learning 2.0. This weeks lesson it to tell the hardest and the easiest of the 7.5 habits of life long lerners. I hardest would be view problems and challenges. I am better with problems that I run in to with computers than other problems in my life but still. The easiest -play. I love to play with technology.
