April 16th, 2008 · No Comments

Step #21 of the 23 Things on a Stick program concerns social networking sites other than those we’ve already examined. I read the two articles and didn’t find the one on Gather very convincing.

YouTube and Other Online Video–23 Things Step #18

April 15th, 2008 · No Comments

Step #18 of the 23 Things on a Stick program concerns YouTube and other online video sites.  I have played around with YouTube a little but have frankly had trouble finding time to learn the ins and outs of video editing so my output has been sparse.  For what it’s worth, you can see my […]

ELM Productivity Tools–23 Things Step #17

April 14th, 2008 · No Comments

Step #17 of the 23 Things on a Stick program concerns ELM productivity tools. I couldn’t get the RSS feed to work, probably because of the known problems with web-based aggregators (I use Google Reader).

LibraryThing–23 Things Step #14

April 13th, 2008 · No Comments

Step #14 of the 23 Things on a Stick program concerns LibraryThing.  I’ve been using LibraryThing for just a little while, so I’m still exploring all the nooks and crannies of the site.  Being able to see who else has a book you are interested in and, in turn, what other books they have is […]
