Thing #23

Well, here I am at the end of this journey of exploration. It was intense at times but always fun and interesting. Now, I will try to use some of the new technologies I have found to help patrons and myself to enhance our library experience.
The only thing certain is that Things will continue to change and evolve so this journey will never really end.
"Drink up, the world's about to end" and "thanks for all the fish" (from the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams).

Thing #22

I have actually been using Overdrive and NetLibrary for some time and find them both excellent sources for audio books and videos. I also use MyLibraryDV for videos. The selections are a bit limited but I have found some interesting short films.

Thing #21

I decided to put the PBS show NOW on my bloglines RSS feed. It picked up OK but when I play it, the voice sounds chipmunkish. I'm not sure why.
I used and I found it very easy to use.

Thing #19

I looked at Yelp
This site provides traveler information for cities in the USA. If you create an account you can add your own sites and reviews.
As this site gains input, it will be a great tool for planning trips or vacations. Patrons would find it very useful as a travel guide.

Try this after Thing #18


Laugh a little, laugh a little,

ha, ha, ha.

Sing a little, sing a little,

la, la, la.

Clap a little, clap a little,

clap, clap, clap.

Dance a little, dance a little,

tap, tap, tap.

Spin a little, spin a little,

round and round.

Rest a little, rest a little,

all fall down.

Thing #17

OK - I'm in there with a wiki page and a link to my blog. It was a bit tricky and I think I left one of those orphan pages floating around but I figured it out by actually reading the instructions!! (Imagine That!?)
