23 Things

The overall exercise was useful and introduced me to technology that I might not have explored on my own. One problem was finding block of time to work on exercises without interruption. But equipment is what made this a long process. My computer has not been updated yet and made completing the exercises more difficult.


I looked at several sites and thought that the Book Lovers wiki would be useful to library customers. They can find reviews on different topic/genres and post their own reviews. I did not like some sites because there is no authority over the information.

Audio Books

I went to the NET LIBRARY site and looked around. I could not open an account. I would like to learn more about this later. Project Gutenberg was unavailable. These sources are beneficial to customers who listen to audiobooks.


I went to MERLIN podcasting learning link and found a link to Kankakee Public Library. I added an RSS feed for their podcast to my Bloglines account so that I could listen to author interviews.

You Tube

I discovered and explored YOU TUBE. Blind Painter was the video that I found. It would be a video that I could add to my blog because it is about a blind student at the University of Texas. He is an artist who demonstrates his painting technique on the video.

Web 2.0 Awards List

I went to the Web 2.0 awards list and chose the books site. Once I was on the site, my choice was This site allows you to search for out-of-print books and buy them on the site. You can chose the type of book you want and email the information to a friend or a customer. I have been searching for the Honey Bunch books that I had as a child. I found them.


I created a Google Docs account and wrote a letter.
