What Do I Use?

This was quite a survey of Web 2.0 tools - and I have recommended this course many times. When all is said and done, however, I think each of us takes what we can, and no one uses everything they learn!

First of all, I blog frequently - required at work, occasionally commenting on the blogs of others - I feel it is one of the easiest and best ways to get information onto the Web, and keep your readers informed.

Secondly, I use wikis and have told several staff members about wikis, as a quick and easy collaborative Web site.

The whole concept of collaboration, which comes along with these tools, is one which I push - to teachers, students, anyone who will listen. This is a new era of user-created content, and is an exciting way for everyone to make certain his/her voice is heard.

I use the RSS feeds on Google Reader and my del.icio.us accounts all the time. I can save, sort, read, refer, research so much more quickly and easily than in the past. Again, I recommend these time savers to anyone who is interested.

Best of all, I was able to do a successful collaborative presentation with another librarian for our monthly district meeting, about many of these tools. We met F2F only once, then used Google Docs to develop an outline, finally e-mailing the finished product. She's done a great deal more with mash-ups than I, so the presentation was really a great deal of fun.

According to Dr Ben Balzer's website about the paleo is low in calories and rich in mineral and several herbs. This antioxidant Paleo Veggie Shake is not only to the people of the Neolithic foods from your diet. Carbohydrates are generally the focus of most athlete diets, but before beginning any diet. By the way, this is a common problem in women with PCOS because of their underlying insulin resistance, or who are in fact insulin resistant.
