For anyone who might view this blog. Why do staff not put real names on their blogs? I can understand it if you're "out" in the blogosphere, commenting on lots of different topics. But this is for our library project. I personally don't want to comment to a nameless (therefore meaningless) blogger.

Can anyone help me here?

Thing 10

Well, I'm finished. I started Thing 10 last Thursday and lots of trouble downloading. Chris Rich took a look for me and couldn't find an error - but after 40 minutes I decided to decide to stop the entire session. Everything seemed to be slow at this time.

I tried again this morning and was successful.
What aspect of the website did I most like? The catalog! I wonder why. I love that you can just look in the catalog and things are so easy - very easy to dowload.

I'm so happy to be finished with my 10 Things. It's a nice feeling - sense of accomplishment. And I'm terrifically happy to be able to go back to cataloging, etc.

Good job, 10 Things Team!!

Thing 9

I like the Google tools. The ability to copy the text and paste it in the email is nice.
The Common Craft tape was very informative as well.

Why are we all so tied to Microsoft?


Thing 8

I liked this task. I just edited the Favorite TV shows and touted my favorite pundit, Keith Olbermann (how boring am I?).

I have lots of radical trust - there will always be random problems, but for the most part I trust the sites, etc. that I go to.

I really like Wikipedia. Tom Johanson gave me a tip there. When we catalog graphic novels, oftentimes, the author is not in LC's authority file. So, to find out more about the author, we go to Wikipedia, where we generally find the country the author lives in (important data for classification numbers). God, I am BORING!!


Thing 7

OK, just finished Thing 7. Denver Public Library has some really interesting podcasts. I listened to those, as well as podcasts from a couple of my favorite political analysts.

I chose to keep Jerey Frumkin's keynote podcast from the LITA Forum '07.

I think podcasting would be useful - I like the book reviews - short and sweet. It would also be nice to share lots of conference speakers' thoughts and ideas.

Thing 6

This was definitely one of the easier tasks.

"Tagging" is the most useful term for the library. With Web 2.0 we better know what it means.

Thing 5

Yesterday, I spent mega time on Thing 5. My dog pictures are in Flickr - problem is I went into Flickr through my Yahoo account. So, the pictures are adorable, but I'm not able to send them. Hopefully, by next week this will work. I did spend at least 2 hrs. - waaaay too much time. This is becoming an obsessive compulsive thing. I want to finish all these THINGS now!! I don't like things hanging over my head.

Today, Ruth came in (I think the Team is on a rotating basis with me) and helped me get my picture over. It's really cute - look at it. My daughter Kerry's dog, Frank.
