Assignment 9 DC

So far in the 23 Things course I have learned three very interesting things:
Podcasting, Google Documents, and Blogging. These were tools that I would not likely have learned or tried on my own. They have opened a new world for me at work and in my personal use.

Podcasting is a great tool for hearing interviews or news stories or even old radio programs.http://relicradio.com/shows/aggregator/categories/3

Google documents has great potential for a newsletter that my branch's YAG is working on.

Blogging http://deb-storyteller.blogspot.com has always intrigued me but also frightened me because of its very public access. Now it doesn't seem quite so intimidating.

I also had fun with the Big Huge Labs site.http://www.bighugelabs.com. Since I like photography, I can see quite a lot of uses for this site. I especially liked the ability to make mosaic pictures or to create specially framed pics.

Wikis seem like great tools to obtain quick information about a topic of interest.
The three interesting wikis that I found were on shopping, animals, and travel.

Shopwiki.com had useful information on various products that would be helpful to read before purchasing.

Wikitravel.org was interesting for me as I hope to travel in 2009 and I was able to get some quick information about several destinations to aid in my decision making.

Animallovers wiki was found at http://www.elftown.com. It had some cute sites about pets with pictures and shared information.

I am finding it a challenge to create a wiki! I don't find the page setup very user friendly.

Overall I have definitely broadened my experience of web 2.0 with this course and feel more empowered when asked by a patron about a particular tool.
