I'm done! Yippee. I did enjoy working on these things. I really got caught up in some of them like posting pictures to Flickr and I felt such a sense of accomplishment when things actually worked for me. My favorite things were the RSS aggregator, Library thing or Good reads, and some of the social networks. I definitely would partipate again if the a similar program was offered. It was fun, but informative.
I will continue to try and use some of the items that I learned about. I consistently use my RSS aggregator, good reads account, and will try and check in with my facebook page to see if anything new has happened. I am always looking up new sites to use for reader's advisory and other topics such as list serves or social groups for topics I am interested in so that is another area I will continue to use.
I did watch the video's concerning second life and briefly visited the pirate game. I didn't actually play the games though because my computer has been so slow I was afraid it would be even slower if I downloaded the software. But I can understand how gaming can be fun and a good way to get kids in the library. In fact, I know of several kids who come in regularly to use the internet and all I have ever see them do is play some type of game. I seriously wonder if some of these kids have developed an addiction. They would probably be first in line if the library sponsered a gaming program which our library is going to do shortly.
