Thing 23 One Last Thing

I just completed the survey and am excited to have completed all 23 Things On A Stick. As a mature employee I have enjoyed learning to use the Web 2.0 tools and will continue to use some of them. I plan on revisiting some of the "Things" to become more proficient. Now, when someone talks about FaceBook, Flickr and MySpace, I can say yes, I have been out to those sites.

Thanks you to those who developed this program for us. There are several of us within my region who are participating so it is fun to compare notes with them.

THE END!!!!!

Thing 22: Staying Current

I plan on using several of the new tools I have learned especially using Bloglines and RSS Feeds along with participating in various Webinars. I will be going back and reviewing some of the tools that I tried but didn't master.

Things 21 Beyond My Space: Other Social Networks

Here is the badge from Ning.

I joined the Knit Pik group which is a group of knitters.

Thing 20 Facebook and MySpace

I explored both Facebook and MySpace. I created an account in Facebook and posted to my wall. I also explored MySpace and went to the Denver Public Library. I like the book reviews that others have posted.
I probably won't do anything else with either of these sites but I can understand why teenagers spend so much time on these sites.

Thing 19 Pod Casts

I listened to several pod casts. The ones I especially liked were This American Life on NPR titled The Ghost of Bobby Dunbar. I also listened to Libaries Become Temporary Refuge for Homeless. I found the Yahoo podcast directory very easy to use. I also tried some of the other directories and they are all pretty easy to use. As of today's date I have not been inspired to create a podcast, maybe at a later date.

Thing 18 You tube

I explored the various videos on You Tube. I could spend alot of time amusing myself by watching the various videos on different topics. Since it is Easter, I did a search on Easter videos and found several very entertaining ones to watch. I enjoyed the Grand March of the Librarians and here is a link to it.

Thing 17 ELM Productivity Tools

I explored the use of these tools. Since I am not a librarian, rather an HR person. I won't make much use of these ELM tools. I have participated in Webinar's for the past couple of years. SHRM (a HR organization I belong to) has used these for training.
