Week Nine, Thing Number Twenty THREE!!
To be honest, I initially decided to do this because I thought it would be a good passtime and would allow me to help others if I could see what they were learning. I did not expect to learn anything new at all.
Boy was I wrong, and am glad I was. I discovered some great tools, and also threw away some hastily formed opinions about certain internet services/sites (eg I used to hate YouTube due to everyone's obsession with it). I still hate delicious, but love the idea of ZohoWriter (a lot of potential). Bloglines was handy to know, I had never bothered to try a feed reader before. Some exercises reinforced my love for the good things, like Flikr, and the Web Awards winners that I reviewed.
I think it has been of great advantage for so many staff to learn of these technologies. And well done to the non YPRL participants!
A special congrats goes out to Margaret Garbutt. You are a trooper and you deserve a medal for the fantastic job you've done on the blog, especially all of the hours you dedicated to working things out for yourself! You have truly captured the essence of this program. I hope to see your blog continue to evolve and grow with all things gardening.
As for all, happy continued blogging and web 2.0'ing!
