Rss Feeds

Amazing technology!! I knew nothing about RSS feeds, but now I feel I have scratched the surface and understand how this technology can be very helpful in dealing with internet information overload while staying current with the new stuff. I created an account on bloglines and subscribed to a few feeds.

Week 3 Thing 7

I am impressed with the WebEx technology. When used in conjunction with a speakerphone it is a great way to conduct software training or a demonstration. It is almost as if the person is there sitting next to your computer.

Week 3 Thing 6

A Flickr tool that intriguied me was mappr. This would be a good way to explore a location I may want to visit. This tool allows me to see pictures that people have taken that have already been there.

Week 1 Thing 2

The 7 1/2 Habits of Successful Lifelong Learners was very enlightening. Habit 6 is probably the easiest for me. I like to figure out how to use technology to my advantage. It's fun to see how things can be streamlined and more efficient. Habit 3 may be the hardest habit for me to overcome. Instead of seeing problems as problems I would like to see problems as opportunities for tackling challenges.

CCPL Staff Orientation

I am just starting the CCPL staff orientation. I understand this virtual staff orientation is modeled after the game of clue. That should be interesting and I am looking forward to it. All of this blog business is new to me. I have heard of it but have not actually used or posted to a blog until now.
