Thing 10

It was interesting to see how other libraries used Wikis. I've used them before, but not done any editing until I added something to the 23 Things wiki. Also signed up for a PBWiki account. However my inspiration for personal and practical uses usually come about a month or more after I've been exposed to the tool.

Thing 9

Collaborative Tools: I played around with Zoho. Again I found it unsatisfactory. But was more successful with Google Docs. That seemed easier to use. I can see times when this might be useful, but don't see an application for my job. I would choose Google Docs for some personal document applications.

Thing 8

Played around with Zoho---pretty clunky. Then used Picture Trail to create this slide show.


Thing 7

Communication Tools. I read about being more effecient with email, Instant Messaging and texting. Also looked at the Minitex webinar offerings. I'm learning texting with the new cell phone I just bought. Although I don't think I'll use it much, its fun to play around.
