Thing #11, A LibraryThing

Well I took the LibraryThing tour. I'd bet some of our customers
would like this LibraryThing thing. A lot of them look for ways of
keeping track of books they've read or are looking for recommendations
of books they haven't read. Here's a list of books I've recently read.
I was able to add it to my blog all by myself this time.
I'm learning more things!

Week #4 RSS & Merlin

I used the discovery resources to learn about RSS. I like the idea of being able to have all
the information come to me. I registered a bloglines account but had some trouble setting up
my feeds. There was some problem with the database. Thanks to my co-workers' help I am
able to share my public Bloglines URL.

I visited the Merlin website and opened an account. The most easy & fun thing to do was my Avatar. I had so much fun, that I created two avatars! Thanks co-workers for showing me how to export my avatars and save them to my blog. Meet Sweetpea and Johnny Ravens.

Yahoo! Avatars

Week 3

Mt Shuksan in Better Weather
Originally uploaded by djsoren

I've been exploring Flickr and I came across
this photo of Mt. Shuksan. A very beautiful
scene. It's been fun looking through all the
photos! I wish I had more time to explore!

I did check out some mashups - Mappr (tag locations), Trip Planner(you can show driving directions, nearby hotels, restaurants, etc.) and Flickr Color Pickr(photos are all in one particular color). Hey DoubleD, I found your krazydad photo!

Week 1 & 2

I did it! My very first blog! I've read about the program and pointers from lifelong learners.
I think having a goal would be the easiest of the 7 1/2 habits. I know I could do better by
looking at problems as challenges. The hardest of the habits for me would have to be using
technology. I did set up and registered my blog, so I'm learning already!
