Final task Summary

What is the most intriguing aspect of this whole adventure is the scope of new venues out there. It is totally overwhelming to this babyboomer and I am a frequent internet user and consider myself as fairly savvy. This showed me that there are millions of worlds and options out there and I have only just begun the process. I found that I got lost very easily once I logged into a site. I personally would need a teacher, guide or someone to help me to learn these new technologies.
PVLD could easily use any of these features to communicate with the new generations coming up. They are adept at journeying anywhere on the web, while we crawl along. I am willing to learn, but I need a show me type environment for learning.

task 10 explore myspace.com

http://www.myspace.com/181028671

This is a dynamite place to explore, but could be very easily abused. Popular with teens and kids alike and probably scary for us baby boomers. There are many resources and that is the draw. You can literally link to any one or thing and the possibilities are endless. My user name is P.

task 6 IM

This is hogsmud on IM. Definitely something kids and adults would use. It is fast and friendly.

hogsmud (11:19:18 am): Hello, I'm Back!

Task 8-You Tube

You tube, who has time for all this funny stuff! It was enlightening! My You-tube user name is Hogsmud!

This is a zen like experience that can be a place of escape, and heaven knows everyone can use that experience. Even library patrons and employees. Popular because it is accessible, free and user friendly. Libraries can use to promote viewing of special programs, displays, art etc.

task 9-google docs & spreadsheets

A trip through a new version of Docs on the WWW. Truly user friendly!

task 7-wikipedia

My user name for wikipedia is Hogsmud and I really enjoyed using this search engine. Once the groundwork is laid out, it is not too difficult to navigate, especially with a competent navigator at your side. My edit was done on Friday, the 13th of April. Just for you all who are superstitious, I love Friday the 13th.

task 4 digital photo process descriptor


Wearable art is just as pure as any artform!
