This was very interesting to me in that there are just so many new things out there that can be accessible from libraries. Digital collections of journals, books, blogs, podcasts, to name a few would make the library even more user friendly. I am aware that we currently have a collection of E-books and we have the Downloadable Audiobooks available and that is a general first step towards the changing world of technology. I was very impressed to read the article about the rural school district library and the services they had to offer. To coin the phrase mentioned in the article "Small Libraries need to think big", is exactly what they have accomplished.
No doubt, our public library is one of the best in the country and I am sure that we will continue to keep up with the trends of technology and continue the excellent services that we offer to everyone!

By looking at the Technorati website, I didn't see anything real interesting to look at. In fact, it was probably a site that I would not like to use very often. I found some of the blogs to be "strange" and downright "rude" in some cases...I never did understand why one would want to post something like that for the whole world to see. I did enjoy looking at some of the book and movie reviews though...

This is fascinating that these sites are so accessible now. I enjoyed looking through some of my bookmarks; in fact I didn't realize I even had some of these in my favorites. I did find one interesting to add that will be very beneficial to me. Best thing about this is that I don't think I will forget the name of this website either!

I had a bit of a problem with #9 in this group. For some reason the RSS Feeds I chose kept going to my Favorites rather than Bloglines. In fact the only choices that came up in most cases were Yahoo, Google, of Windows Live. I finally did find Bloglines as an option after searching several places. This indeed was not operator error this time!
