Exercise #23 -Joy

My favourite sites were LibraryThing, YouTube and Facebook. LibraryThing, Wikis and the social networking sites, Bebo, MySpace and Facebook would be useful for library patron communication. It would be great to have time to use these tools in our library working day.
These exercises have made me enthusiastic to learn more about each of the Web 2.0 sites we have visited. Due to shortage of time, I have only scratched the surface of these sites and am determined to revisit them, use them more often and experiment with putting more info onto the sites I am most enthusiastic about. I would like to keep up with technology and have made learning itself a lifelong goal -I hope I keep learning new things all my life!
I will be recommending Writeboard to a friend I am encouraging to write a novel. She does not have Word on her computer. I hope to communicate regularly with my granddaughter once I know her Bebo address. I was impressed with the wide variety of sites and the amazing number of tasks they allow the user to perform. I can see how the world is changing because of technology. This was a pleasurable glimpse into the future!!
