You Tube

Have used You Tube numerous times over the last few months since I opted for dialup over broadband. If just for the fact that it is useful - how to tie a tie and of course the many clips that have been used in the web 2.0 training. It provides hours of entertainment for teenagers and sometimes is very funny. I guess the down side is one can spend time begining to look at a clip and then finding it is not what one wanted, but certainly a minor issue when compared to the information and entertainment it provides. One can see it being useful in libraries for training or "how to scenarios" - how to search for Large Print only. A short clip would be useful for a user if trying to search from home or even on the library opacs A link to You Tube and there it is.

Web 2.0 Awards

Spent more time here than I intended, zapped around looking at so many sites I couldn't remember where I had been. Then found the language sites - hey now this was fun, my offspring thought the cheese had finally fallen of my cracker as I started speaking Spanish in a very slow deliberate way. Mango was my site of choice, so if you feel like starting to learn a new language go............Mango!

Zoho Writer

Well here is another great tool for sharing information and collaboration whether it be work, hobbies whatever. I cannot see that I would be using this in the near future (famous Last words) but I can see the online/off-line availability and sharing between nominated users would make this a popular option for many. Great options available to enhance documents.

Could see this being a useful tool for clustering websites for any topic of interest, hobby or work - Homework questions/topics. Found the site relatively easy to navigate and set up my own rollyo.

Library Thing

Another fun exercise. I doubt that there would be anyone who wouldn't enjoy spending time here - well those of us who work in libraries anyway. What I like about Library Thing most of all is seeing what books others who have the read the same books recommend.
