Summarize your experiences during the Learning 2.0 Project.

Oh the 2.0 Project...
I loved it! It was fun and cool and I can't wait to get my prize! If Summer Reading has taught me anything, incentives and prizes work! For all ages!

- What was the most important thing that you learned? Using RSS and finding Bloglines.
Why? I have been wanting to read blogs for awhile, but how to find them and then how to keep up with them and Bloglines was the answer to all those questions!

- How can PVLD use these technologies to deliver or improve library services?

Is this a useful way of encouraging staff development? YES! I think we should have a Learning 2.5!

I finally did the profile and I added a bunch of people! And even this
week one of my old college buddies found me! Which is awesome!

I added some other friends and musicians and people! And now I have more friends!

Come be my friend at My space!
