Play nice and share

A life philosophy? Sure, sure. Contrawise, I want to see if anyone else is using Google Documents. If not, is anyone interested in trying it out? I’d like to play around with Google Doc’s shared document feature. If you’re interested, email me. Ebook training today. W00t! It’s quite similar to electronic resource cataloging, with some […]

32nd and Final Thing

The final IUL2.0 post! This post’s soundtrack, “It’s Over,” is brought to you by the Squirrel Nut Zippers. Overall, I enjoyed the program because seriously, how often does your boss ask you to blog OTC? I had the opportunity to play with things I’ve never bothered with before and I had fun working with my […]

NetLibrary

OK, the last topic for IUL2.0! Anyone feeling sentimental? Hand raise? Head shake? I pulled up CSS mastery: advanced web standards solutions by Andy Budd on NetLibrary (I wasn’t able to download it). I can see the usefulness of having reference books such as this one in electronic format. I can save a copy and […]

Web 2.0 Randomness

This seemed like an easy IUL 2.0 “thing” to get out of the way, until I realized how much time I killed doing it! Web 2.0 Awards is a black hole but I’m back and here’s what I liked (that was free and didn’t require signing in to play with): ColorBlender – as my uber-artistically […]

Google Docs

Is it Not Nifty? A Google Document Table of Contents Introduction Features Fun in Other Tabs Introduction In this IUL 2.0 exercise, I am investigating web-based applications. I was intriugued by the Zoho products, but I opted to try out the Google services instead, as I already have a Google account (and I don’t exactly […]

Wiki Me

Hey, did you know Bloomington has a wiki? My husband-person has an article in Bloomingpedia. I’m slightly jealous but ultimately happy and secure in my anonymity. I don’t have much to say about wikis, perhaps because I tend to use Wikipedia almost as much as I use Google. Wikis pretty much rock. Of all of […]

iGoogle, Yes I Do

I’m avoiding doing any real work on the IU Libraries 2.0 project. Instead I’ll rant about random stuff- some of which IS tech related, so I feel justified. I’m absolutely sick of my homepage on my home laptop, so last night I switched. Usually, I don’t worry about such things but I was playing around […]

Technorati

I’m afraid there will be some overlap in my discussion of technorati‘s searching capabilities with a previous post, so go head there first. Or better, I’ll summarize: I’m not impressed. Searching google does the same for me and it is rare that I need to search solely for blogs. I am, however, intrigued by the […]

Yummy or… not?

I haven’t set up a del.icio.us account and it’s not because I don’t see it’s potential, I just don’t have an immediate use for it at the moment. I am not conducting research (although I should be) and I have WAY too many bookmarks on my home browser, most of which I almost never use. […]

This is how I roll

You may now search my blog, courtesy of Rollyo. I have a web design project on the horizon, so I wanted to create a search tool that would query useful sites. I found that Rollyo was very easy to use. And handy! I foresee creating more custom searches. EDIT: Since moving to WordPress, which has […]
