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.

So what do Web 2.0 and Learning 2.0 mean to me? So far, it has been an opportunity to learn some technology that I had previously been afraid to use and it has also created yet more for me to read in the form of blogs (I have become addicted to a few blogs). Bloglines has become a second library for me to read in additon to the books I find and the stuff TiVo has waiting for me.

Thing #7.. anything technology related.. hmmm... Flash drives... Love them!!! I put 30 (yes 30!) floppies worth of pictures on a 256 flash drive.. and still had room to spare!! At home, it is so much easier to share pictures with friends that way, esp if you have a lot to share (say from a vacation, where my camera is constantly going). I also have a 1 gig flash drive that gets used a lot as well. OK, back to work for now, RSS is calling me!!

Anyhow, I played with some pics that I took and then today posted them to my Flickr page (SJMatt) so feel free to take a look and tell me what you think. Oh, and I take no blame if you look at any of the pics that my friends post on their Flickr accounts.... They crazy!
