Wrapping up!!

Yahoo! I FINALLY finished! With 4 days to spare! Wow, that was quite the challenge!
I like learning and seeing everything even if I may not use it later, but at least I am more aware of what is out there. My favorite thing was ListenNJ and my least favorite was RSS & Newsreaders.
I think that OCL should be aware of all of what Web 2.0/ Web 3.0 offers and if it is something that is useful to the system, like ListenNJ, WorldCat or scanning, then it should be given as a "class" and learned.
So thanks to all who created this challenge it was quite an experience!


Did it! It took quite a bit of work but I was finally able to get it to work on my computer.
I chose to listen to part of an old radio show they had call "The Shadow". It was very fun to
listen to and imagine only being able to listen to shows instead of seeing them.
ListenNJ has a quite a collection of "books" to listen to and the few that I was looking for were
"checked out" and so browsing around I ran across "The Shadow". I love books to listen to or old radio shows, so this I will certainly use again!

I don't know much about podcasts, so this was a bit confusing to figure out.
So I am hoping that I did this correctly.

This should be something from NPR radio show. I remember listening to other NPR shows as I was growing up with my brother. So again this is just a bit of childhood memories for me.
Since I don't have a Ipod or an MP3 player, these are a bit like the YouTube to me. They are interesting but I don't have much use for them at this point in my life.

Tube and me

Here is a bit of one my favorite childhood book in video:

YouTube is a great site IF you have a computer, or at least an internet provider that can handle all the graphics. I only have a dial up service and so YouTube is not good for me.

Web Awards.....

Wow, that was interesting. There are quite a lot that I would never use but they were certainly fun to explore. I think, if I was going to use any of them, it would be the Google Docs or at least something near to it.
I will have to go back and check to see if they have change or added stuff to the site.

Web docs

Ok, I have added my name a poked around a bit.
The idea that a group of people can all work on a document at the
"same time" and not have to be in the same building would be very
useful. As a page, I don't have any need of this in my job, but it would
come in handy in my life with my sisters and our shore house and doing
a spread sheet on the renters or the work we have done through the

Ok, Sandbox was fun. It is just like playing with a big word document with a lot of other people.
I didn't put in anything about my favorite foods, books or sports but instead my favorite object in my life at this moment, since I just got it on Tuesday the 13th!
