Thing 47 Evaluation

For a while, I didn't think I would get back to this. I started and then February and March were very busy, but when I got back, I stuck to it. It was worth it. There were many fun things and many informative things. I didn't like Twitter, and I still don't see the point, except as a link to other places. Maybe that is the point. I learned new things, at my own pace, which is my learning style. I would do this again, if there is the opportunity.

Thing 46 WebJunction Minnesota

I am familiar with WebJunction (Minnesota). I've been to a couple of workshops and have browsed it quite a bit. I am getting ready to inventory the library computers in Tech Atlas. It really offers a lot of information in the library business. I hope to keep up with it often.

Thing 45 Cloud Computing

I didn't know that it had a "name", but I've been participating in cloud computing for awhile, anyway. It's a handy thing to have, for instance photos, parked somewhere else for use anywhere. When I was doing the Halloween scrapbook of my grandchildren, I accessed my daughter's photos on Snapfish. I read a few of the articles and found them informative. It's really nice to learn more about what's inside the web.

Thing 44 The Economy

This was interesting. There are so many options for maintaining your budget and saving your money. I really liked the coupon sites and the "deals". I'm going to go against the tide of people putting out gardens this year. I decided to just go to a Farmer's Market instead.

Thing 43 Online TV & Video

I had heard of Hulu, but not Joost. I really don't want to watch tv on my computer. I don't watch tv much in any case, but it is a place to find an episode of something you really want to see, or you may have missed. I have heard people say they watch many episodes of shows every week, so it does have a place these days.

Thing 42 Music 2.0

I've really enjoyed learning about these. I often listed to MPR online, but I haven't gone beyond that. This really expands the options. I did set up a radio station, which is fun, and I will try out other genres of music. I have Googled music lyrics for patrons in the past, but I bookmarked a couple of the sites for lyrics.
