Can you See IT?

Each day technologies emerge with sometimes an eye opening experience.
Finding a "new" technology experience to test drive whether surfing on the Internet or when shopping at your local Best Buy or P.C. Richards is always exciting!

I reflect for a moment when my dad bought me my curling iron for my hair as a Christmas gift.... I thought that was the best invention ever made since I had the straightest hair on earth!
A curling iron was a miracle to me that Christmas! It was a technology experience that I still enjoy today!

Thanks Dad!

Thing Twenty-three: You Got What You Needed!

Participating in the Twenty-Three Things was an exploratory adventure... not quite like an Alice in Wonderland Adventure but non-the-less just as exciting! Don't you think you found some curious things?

Discovering what seemed like old technology turned into something new a "redesign" ... Google Docs and zoho are similar and creative for community communications. I can see this evolving right in front of our eyes.

Blogs, Blog Readers, RSS Feeds and the mashup of a Blog into Blog Talk Radio- which is in my Blog- I will brag here was just the best! We are on Yoko Ono's website too!

Podcasts alone suffice for what they are created for, but finding the PodBean website was truly a treasure! MORE than just a Podcasting app, a synthesis of Web 2.0 "things" enabling iTune, RSS feed, downloading and even more accessibility at just one click! I will brag again! I loved it and will use it to volunteer my skills sometime in the future for a library production. (see Post 21 Mummy Found @ Your Library)

As not to bore you with all that I have learned and enjoyed here, thanks to everyone who showed the wherewithal and determination to the Finish Line! I have first place ribbon and Gold Stars! As a member of the Tech Team I am very proud!

Kudos and Hooray for you!

As Mike Jagger would say: I hope You got what you needed! I did too! Let's go for more!

Thing Number Twenty-Two: Share and Sharon , Devin and Grace

What a collaborative thrill to create our "own" BlogTalk Radio session back in December 2007.

Grace, Sharon, Devin and I engaged in a lively Blog Talk Radio session about the anniversary of John Lennon's death(December 8th).

Together we experienced a blog... in a "non-traditional" Blog format.
It became an archival mp3 forever... i guess!

To find it and hear it you can locate it on our personal blogs.

It was a truly enjoyable experience!

Thing Number Twenty-One: Podcasts with your Mummy!

Mummy Found @ Your Library:
In the 21st Century we are "Time" challenged. Edgar Allan Poe wished he knew who would be president in 2045. Don't you? Listen to an excerpt from Some Words with a Mummy. is where I am premiering a few short teaser MP3's for a series of You Have a Voice @ Your Library ---from various Free Public Domain Classical Book sites. A major goal is to bring Back the Classics in a new venue and to encourage reading the Classics electronically. Having total control over content allows for titanic creativity and experimenting with this new library Web 2.0 idea!

Two Channels are currently available: Fright Night Classics: Edgar Allan Poe
and Existential Experiments: Nathaniel Hawthorne
Dreams and Nightmares: Lewis Carroll
with more content to be added soon!

I hope you send me some feedback!


I Have Great Faith in a Seed

Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders.-
