Linked, Plaxo, Google Sites

this is my google sites, site. I had some trouble trying to edit it and what not. Once I thought I finally got it, it wouldn't let me save it...I'm not sure if it was my computer, internet connection, or something else. SOO it's not as great as I'd hoped it would be. I'll try fixing it again later. I think it's a neat way to get everything in one spot!

I think that there are definite benefits to all three of the projects for this week. I think that the google sites website it a really good way to compile all the things you may want to get to people whether it be professionally or personally. It's a good way to organize and get your points across while showing some of your personality.
The problem that I see all of these sites having is that they are not very popular. I guess I don't know what's popular and what's not when it comes to the professional world, but not a lot of people I know have accounts or use any of the resources we are discovering. It may become more popular in the future, but for right now, I feel as though it's not and so it's going to be harder to connect with people than e-mail or just handing out hard copies of your stuff.

LIBRARY THING! It's a good way to keep track of books lists, now if only I could accomplish the whole reading part of them.

I thought this activity was fun! I likes working with the best because I felt like it was the least confusing and it had fun things to do with pictures.

Best Invention ever funny

Delicious, Technorati, You Tube

Delicious- I think that the Delicious site could be very useful for people to use in association with anything whether it be work or school or teaching. I will probably not use it if I am teaching just because I don't really want to. I am not big into computers and technology and all that so I stay away from it as much as I can, even if it's meant to make my life simpler.
Technorati- This site is neat because you really can scan the giant world of blogging simply. I typed in Kinesiology into the search and nothing came up because it was searching for posts and not blogs. Once I swithced it over to blogs, there were a lot more. Then I typed in athletic training and a lot popped up. It was neat.
