I have enjoyed the "23 Things" course, it has been a great discovery exercise. With that said, for me it has been discovery, I am by no means comfortable navigating within the applications and had difficulty with some of the activities. I found it enjoyable however and it certainly kept my interest. I would like to continue in this area if the opportunity comes along.

I checked out both Overdrive and Project Gutenberg. Overdrive let me search for books without setting up an account. It gave me the libraries where I could find an audio book located. I searched Project Gutenberg and found a history book I may be interested in called "Shiloh" as Seen by a Private Soldier. I don't think I was able to utilize these sources very well, I need a little more help in this area.

I evidently skipped week 5 in my blog update, however I do remember doing the Library thing. I cannot log back into it, and I know I put 5 books in my list as they were all Stephen Ambrose World War II history books! I revisited the Avatar site, both Zwinky.com and Fix 8.com but was not too successful developing my own avatar. I finished up with no. 12, the Rollo(?) but found when I went into what I thought was World War Craft, it was not pictures of vintage warbirds! Kind of disappointing!

My favorite award winning site without a doubt is Google Maps. I have used this site many times for general directions not knowing I could expand the services available. I used my sign in and password previously generated for one of the other sites. I will expand my usage of this site now after doing this exercise.
The ZoHo Writer seemed a good application for collaborative work which we do in our office quite a bit. It is also a great application when one is using more than one computer, as it saves the trouble of using data sticks. As with most of the 2.0 tools, I had a little trouble navigating around, but that should be expected.
