My Personal Web Site, Plaxo, and LinkedIn

I had a hard time getting into Google Pages because they are no longer taking accounts. I then worked on Plaxo which helps you get your information to personal friends and business partners. My favorite program was LinkedIn because I am looking for a job and this particular program can help me to use my resources to find an opportunity. I think all of these programs can be great ways of showing your resume and other information to those who care about you.

Library Thing II

I was searching through all of these books and realized that I have not read enough in my life. It love the website especially for those who love to get presents!

Library Thing Website

I looked at several youtube videos. I could see several examples of my lesson and current events are on youtube. The main problem is my school blocks youtube from being viewed.

I used to watch this show every week. I loved that a super hero could be clumsy and still get the job done. I looked around but I use youtube all the time to find things that I saw online. I can easly see posting clips to help class see what they were supposed to do.

Library 2.0 (hmmmmm....)

I am not quite sure if I am just supposed to be looking at Wikipedia or not? Anyone have any clues? Let me know...

Technorati (Yawn!)

I looked at this new site, Technorati. Needless to say by the title that I wasn't very excited. I hear too many people's opinions on different things already. I know, I know.... I am typing this on a blog (the irony isn't lost on me). I am typing this for my class and anyone who cares to read it. I am sure if you are really into blogs this would be a great site to visit. For me, this site is not very helpful for personal or professional use.

Delicious or not?

I just was on the website I really liked it... What is it is a way to put your bookmarks online so others can see what you find important. You can add tags that make it easy to find the site. You can look at your friend's delicious sites or look at all the public posting almost like a search!!! I highly recommend it! This way you can have you favorite bookmarks on any computer and you can share important links with your classes.

Technologies and Uses In My Life!

I believe I will make a blog for my classes next year. It is a great way to keep up with the kids. I will only allow students who give me their email address to log on to the account. I would like to take video clips of my class and add them to my blogs. I am not sure if I will use twitter... I can have students learn to podcast to make projects in my tutorials. I really have enjoyed this class so far.

Web 2.0 Awards (Lulu)

I explored Lulu a program from the huge list on Web 2.0 Awards. This website had tutorials on how to make many different things on the web. You could make books, ebooks, photo albums, calenders, cookbooks and more... This could be a great way to make some extra money or a way to send a present to a friend or family member. I am interested so look at some of the other sites on Web 2.0 Awards.

Google DOCS

This program gives you ways to share and publish your documents. You can now save it online so several people can document it. I am not exactly sure how they do it yet, but they can!

RSS Assignment

I never realized how many blogs there are out there. The assignment of following other blogs and subscribing to blogs to have the information brought to you. This is very exciting new way to follow the news. I am still a little confused with it all but and finding the hunt very energizing.

I just created my first podcast for now Technology class. It was really fun. I now I have been playing with looping music. That can turn out very strange.

Class Assignment

I have found that the greater your thirst to know.... the greater your push to grow.
