What I liked best? Flickr, hands down. Close second are Bloglines and del.icio.us. I use all three daily, but flickr has help the most because me and my friends are always sharing pictures. What I disliked (even though no one asked) was eBooks. I am sure they are great, but it's just not for me.
How it's assisted with lifelong learning? Well, helped me get started and showed me how easy some of this stuff actually is. Most of the exercises were much simpler that I had imagined.
What would help? Maybe offering tutorials on each specific exercise. For example, if the exercise of the week is flickr, have a open lab that addresses that specifically.
Oh yeah, I would interested in a future discovery course.

I did a search for library and this was one of the videos that came up. Thought it was interesting because it shows a different side of what goes on in a library. Granted, it is not an everyday occurance, but libraries are not always the quiet, tranquil places that every thinks. Everyday, the real world comes into our libraries and it is not always the good stuff. I actually left a comment about this video on Youtube, so feel free to read it if you like. Be warned, there is a lot of foul language in the video and in the comments.
