Thing 3. Set Up an RSS Account & Add Feeds

Setup Google Reader and added several feeds. Actually found more feeds that interested me than I will have time to look at. Challenge will be to pare them down to the most valuable.

We'll see how that goes.

Thing 2 - What is Web 2.0 and Why Should I Care?

Finding time is always a challenge. Mostly I am experimenting at home during some spare time there. I imagine that if a tool were identified and used with enough frequency it would become second nature.

I am not sure that I will ever find the time or have the desire to blog to the extent that some people do. I guess you gotta love it to do it.

Hopefully, this program will expose me to the various tools available and possible applicaitons within the library.

I do have some reservations installing some of the software used in the program. One of my responsibilities is to ensure the integrity and efficient operations of our library systems. Some may say that I am paranoid. Perhaps but we did allow a test installation of a software package for one of our children's librarians. It was a disaster and we ended up re-imaging the computer.

While these tools are very interesting we can't completely ignore the security and operational requirements that keep our libraries running.

I WILL be cautious!!!
