Learning a language from the computer is easier compared to listening to a cd and holding a work book. With the computer, you control the visuals and auditory with one mouse click. With a workbook and cd, you have to hold the book plus worry about pushing the pause button on a cd player. I also like the "flash card" approach on the computer when learning a language.

The video I choose to link to my blog is Genealogy or Looking For One's Own Peeps, from the Birmingham Public Library. I love any stories about Peeps and especially Peeps at the library. I remember a while back, their was a funny "Peeps Research" on SPLAT, that had a string of photos showing the Peeps adventure at the library, from the Office of Fluffy Research, Staley Library, Millikin University. I wanted to see if the cute little Peeps made it to the big screen! Looks like the two in the video below got a break! They will inspire more Peeps to follow their sugary steps. Oh, and the background music is very charming.

Dear Dr. Pruitt
Thank you for visiting our library, and donating up-o-date medical and health books to the Central Library. We always accept donations, and are appreciative that you were willing to donate expensive serial reference books, we did not have the funds to purchase ourselves. You have truly contributed to the library and community.
Thank you again, for thinking of the Sacramento Public Library.
Visit us again soon!

Library 2.0 is so highly interactive, and gives library users some leverage as to be like a "programming director". Library is about the public, so making sure we expound on the "user-centered" focus will surely make us a winner. I wonder how all of this will pan out, you know, the public having so much freedom?

Right now, I like Delicious for it's capabilities of listing websites, and being portable. I am not too into the social aspect of it, but who knows, maybe I will later.

I love Rollyo! I can see this being used on a library website, or better yet, online research guides. I had a grand time maneuvering and testing this little searcher...

I like the idea of creating "hotkeys" or shortcuts to access a variety of programs and files on my computer. For example, by using Cnrl + Alt + a letter or symbol, you can create shortcuts to either a website, a file on your hard drive, a calculator, and even your email. In other words, you can change your keyboard to a multimedia control board. Not bad for taking only 1.5 mb of space on your hard drive!

Wow, I feel so inspired to travel after seeing areas I have not been to yet. I need to cover more ground around the Western and Midwestern states. I foresee a Montana trip in the very near future...
