Exercise # 23

Wow!! I do not believe i really catch up my all of my exercises or i am going to say '??' exercises have finished? So quick!! yes, indeed, i do enjoy these exercise even sometimes made me frustrated and kind of lost in the forest. But i have a good help team behind me always knew how to bring me out. i already told my friends and family members to get my 'blogger' and read it. without these exercises i would not know how many websites we can add in our libraries. sharing with whole world not just in New Zealand. To recall all of the technologies i learned i quiet enjoy RSS with Bloglines and Web 2.0 awards-Genealogy-Heritage which i will make my own family tree, in the future.
anyway, congratulations all of us. many thanks my help team.

Exercise # 22

Exercise # 21 is discovering My Space and Facebook, exercise# 22 is learning about 'Social Networking with library', i do my Google searching what are different with them. i think it is good to read Danah Boyd June 24 2007 article 'Viewing American class divisions through Facebook and MySpace' article has very clear explanation between My Space and Facebook. after my read Meredit Farkas on May 10 2006 article 'Library in Social Networking Software' make me to come to a understanding all of a sudden. they are link like ' communication vehicles.' running, bringing and exchanging knowledge and information from multi-ways. that it’s a good idea for a library to at least seriously think about having a MySpace or Facebook' in the future. we always say 'Library is your Library'.

Exercise # 21

Browsing this exercise I do like Rotorua Library's Bebo, it is attracted people to discover the Library.
I am very interested 'Facebook' it is kind of my MSN (windows live messenger) and 'Skype', i can invite my friends or i be invited on their chatting lists. but 'Facebook' has more convenience functions. from my help team showed her 'Facebook' album and share with her sweet family beautiful photos. she told us she only needs to check on 'Facebook' she knows where her kids are and this web always be updated. yes, i sign-up and add my photo on 'Facebook' , i will ask my kids my relatives to sign-up to share our photos and messages. i really like the exercises make me learn more functions and information. even i have not learned thoroughly but i will take my time to do more exercises to satisfy myself.
welcome to join and be friends . click this website you will see my 'soul male' how handsome he is.

Exercise # 20

This image shows ebook like. carrying it with us to read in anytime at any place but it is not really good for elderly people or have eyesight problem readers. Small screen can not make printing big enough. For myself, i don't think i would enjoy it. it is very convenience for some disable just need to sit in front of computer to enjoy reading. I wonder these ebooks are fully copied? or just summary. these ebooks could keep forever without getting damaged or pull apart by readers. but first it needs to spend some money to buy this equipment to download them.

Exercise # 16

this article has been published from my 'Zoho writer' exercise. It is another easy way to create my documents. I feel more interested and more easier to have finished my exercise now. I Will appreciate to have comments for my writing.
Do reporters and photographers respect the private lives of famous people?

No. I really don't think reporters or photographers know how to respect the private lives of famous people.they try various methods to stalk them and immorally dig up these people private matters. They don't mind even the information is untrue or going to damage or harass these peoples reputations or marriages. curiosity is part of human nature. plenty of people are curious about the difference between public people lives and them.reporters and photographers want to feed readers interesting to get their job satisfaction. therefore, they neglect respecting peoples lives on the other hand, if these people have 'No' reporters or photographers how they be a famous?

Exercise # 11

What is Wiki?
it is a allows a group of people to collaboratively develop a Web site with other markup languages. anyone can add or edit pages in a Wiki or create new Wiki pages simply by creating a new link with the name of the page. Sounds the same with setting-up 'blogger' and sharing information about the profession?

book lovers Wiki-it is look like a 'book club' or 'book review' free to review or talk reading experience , sharing comments and getting users to post about their favorite books, become more actively involved in the library's online presence!
For library with a Wiki-
The Library Instruction Wiki was designed to help librarians learn from one another.feel free to create collaborative spaces to brainstorm or develop a project, conference presentation. it belongs to the community of librarian.
i have feeling 'Wiki' is like an alive library everyday can see new topics, categories and a lot of someones experiences. is it exciting?

Exercise # 10

i have read some articles about Library2.0. from my understanding Library2.0 is a new way of providing library service through new Internet technologies with emphasis on 'user-centered' changes and interaction. inviting user participation and involved in the process of interacting with the catalog and sharing content, such as OPAC in our libraries. These new types of catalogs are a shift from "isolated information silos" to "interlinked computing platforms'. With new web tools information can be released to flow in every direction (library to user, user to library, library to library, and user to user, it is different with past which the information flow was mostly one way, from library to user.
Library 2.0 is not about searching, but finding; not about access, but sharing. Library 2.0 recognizes that human beings do not seek and utilize information as individuals, but as communities.
Do i have a right concept.

Exercise # 8

have you seen the photo? it is from my exercise #8 'explore ' tags-library
maybe it was a coincidence i clicked 'people' typed my name, i got a few websites have written by Chinese characters. but bookmarks does not need to add user's name to get more websites,
do you think 'bookmarks' or 'tags' is similar function with our libraries searching by 'title' or 'keyword' . they will bring all of information but display from a different title. hopefully i am doing a right exercise.
before i started my exercise i clicked 'help' it answered a lot of my questions. clear my doubts.
it is a really 'DELICIOUS' !! i am quite enjoying .
