This looks to have huge potential. My grandson would have a lot of fun with it, but I have restricted myself to a quick look

This looks as if it might be easy to use. I had a look at someone's thing about Windsor which is where I got married which is why it caught my fancy.If I had put that on the web I think I would mind if some else edited it or addded to it!!

Book Lovers Wiki

This was a marvellous collection of book reviews, which I can see would be useful for Readers Advisory

Tip of the iceberg

I looked at icebergs and found my mind boggling at the extent to which cyberspace is taking us. I could also see what huge potential there is for the next generation of librarians.It is daunting abut also exhilerating to try to comprehend all the possibilities, especially for providing what the patron wants, where they want it, and how ( in what form , book , internet, blog etc) they want and will expect to get it.It's happening so quickly as well. I found this exercise intereasting.

Searching in Technorati I found that there were over 98,000 hits for Web 2.0 about 14,00 blogs 598 for the next one, getting quickly less and less. Found it difficult to locate Blog Directory, until shown that it was Blog Centre ?

Exercise # 8 Bookmarking

I can see hat this would be a good tool for use on the ref desk as was indicated by one of the sites I looked at.
I can understand the implications of the social side of it, sharing information and thus increasing information at a huge rate.

RSS Part 1

I found this very confusing and mind boggling. I an see that there would be uses for RSS within the library system, but I would have to use it often to feel at all confident in my ability or its usefulness.
