thing 23

Done, almost: The questions.

  1. What were your favorite discoveries or exercises on this learning journey?
I enjoyed the downloadable books, Flickr was interesting
  1. How has this program assisted or affected your lifelong learning goals?
It gives me more tools to cope with this computer laden world!
  1. Were there any take-aways or unexpected outcomes from this program that surprised you? Yes, how much time goes by while one plays with ones computer! One must watch so that this addiction doesn't overcome the real world
  2. What could we do differently to improve upon this program’s format or concept?And last but not least…I would gear this for more appropriate library activities.

  1. If we offered another discovery program like this in the future, would you again chose to participate? Sure
  2. How would you describe your learning experience in a few words or a few sentences, so we can share our successes and promote this program? Interesting. It made me do some things I normally wouldn't do! In all it was a new tool to experiment with.

thing 22

Amazing. Project Guttenberg is great, I loved the selection of stories.......but...two things!

1. The computer read stories haven't progressed past HAL! One has trouble listening.

2. I did listen to Edgar Rice Burroughs A PRINCESS OF MARS! Now, ERB was from the good old US of A, Chicago to be exact...then he founded his own town in the LA Area, Tarzana...but the book, about a Virginia Gentleman who goes to Barsoom (Mars to the uninitiated)...well John Carter should have a Southern Accent...what do we have reading the book? A fellow with a Brit accent with Germanic all loses something in the translation!

thing 21

The ninja and the art blog
were looked at today
it was about as tasty
as a big hog
served on a tray!

I did my duty, and saw it done
and looked and played and
tried to have some fun!

But I have put it all aside
and quit it every bit and all
before I get a headache
and suffer from computer pall!

thing 20

Wow, I found a 1970s Budweiser commercial that I sent to some of my, likewise "old friends". Loved thos great polyester clothes...and I'll bet the Bud still tastes as lousy as it did then!

You tube is very entertaining. I was asked if it had any library utility...I'm sure it does around 4 pm when you are bored out of your mind with nothing to do....but want to have the boss think you are working on something! Youtube it baby! Better than solitaire!!!

thing 19

2.0...well...I found a color site! A gane site with games that would have wasted a lot of time....hmm, do you want to pay for gaming? And a site for clothing not worn by many people I know...stripper clothing! One could waste a lot of time with that too!

thing 18

Using googledocs as an in house spread sheet might make annual budgeting easier if everyone could see the direction it was going. Great help too in getting out information from departments. I can see this as being helpful with updates, etc.

thing 17

This task is done. Sandbox wiki, is that the same as a litterbox....hmmmmm!?
