#23 of 23 Summarize your thoughts about this program

Wow where do I began; before I had started this program I knew as much about computers as a chicken knew about flying. But over the time of months I was able to shape myself into an eagle and I have a much better understanding. This LATI project for 23 Things was truly one of my best learning experiences after my collage. It was really self-paced and I learn new web design and Url, online technology. I may not have known about creating my own blog if it wasn't for the LATI project. I saw a lot of latest websites and read different bloggers posts. I now know how to use so many programs that will help me in this more connected time period. I learned about the iphone and so many web sites that I would have never known existed if it wasn't for this LATI 23 things. I have become addicted to Flickr and is consistently uploading my photos and also editing them in one of the 3rd party sites. I am also using YouTube it has so much to offer. I would like to thank MCPL and Library Associate Training Institute for making me do this 23 things, it has truly helped me, Thank You.

#22 of 23 Downloadable audiobooks

This is a great site to be able to access books online but its only down fall is reading an either book online is not enjoyable as being able to sit down and read the book from print. I find the idea of reading an either book online from a computer un-enjoyable and would prefer to read outside in my garden. But i guess some people prefer to read from their desk.

#21 of 23 Useful search tools for locating podcasts

I found a great site that contains stories that can only be a 100 words long. The site is useful to tell quick storys mabye for a bed time story a quick joke to tell your friends. I wasn't able to put to syndicate the site because blogger is not on the list. But its still a worthy site and is useful.

#20 of 23 Week 9: Podcasts, Video & Downloadable audio

I went on Youtube and found some Ethiopian music which I had planned putting on my blog. The music if from my homeland, but Blogger will not allow me to put it on my page for some reason. Instead I will put the link to the page if you would like to check it out.

#19 of 23 The Web 2.0 awards list

I found a site that allows you to tell the best part of your story because after all the most remembers part is thats one little part that makes the rest of the story great... one of mine was "and i walked away". This is a fun and great site.

#18 of 23 Week 8: Online Applications & Tools

One major benefit to web-based applications is that they eliminate the need to worry about different software versions or file types as you email documents or move from PC to PC. Another bonus is that they easily accommodate collaboration by allowing multiple users to edit the same file (with versioning) and provide users the ability to easily save and convert documents as multiple file types (including HTML and pdf).

17# of 23 Learning 2.0 SandBox wiki.

Wiki is like a large, random conversation with all sorts of information that could be useless to one and an essential to another. With such a wide variety of information it is a very useful program.
