Thing 23 Wrapping up

This is your last required blog post, so make it a good one. What was your favorite thing you learned about? Conversely, what did you like least about Web 2.0? What areas of Web 2.0 do you think the library should get more involved in? What Web 2.0 services have you shared with your friends and family?

Sounds ominous... last required blog post...where to start? My favorite thing I learned from this challenge was the challenge itself. Since I am a member of this committee and have helped guide and shape the challenge itself, it's really hard to choose a favorite. I have enjoyed teaming up and editting the things. I enjoyed bonding and team building with staff members who needed guidance along the way. Tagging, RSS, and the other terms are now being overheard a lot more here in the library. I like that I helped make that happen. Think of the possibilities and the overall professional development that has occurred. Friendships and skill sets were broadened... That says a lot for 23 things.

I loved seeing some people blossom with certain tasks. I felt empathy for others as I could see the frustation with some of the technical tasks. I encountered some of the same frustation... I most likely will never be a fan of some of the current versions of these web applications, but I will continue to try to keep up with new technologies and tasks.

I have shared some of my new found techie knowledge with customers and my family. That's neat, like the old Fabrege shampoo commercials you tell two friends and so on and so on. It takes on a life of its own. Long live web 2.0, web 3.0 and even the future 4.0!
