Thing 5

I've created a Twitter account, no matter how much it hurt. My Twitter name is KirstinBacon.
I felt like I needed to be at least 15 years younger, or be somehow famous to be "tweeting." I looked through some options of people/organizations to follow and actually found some things I might like to keep up on. I am following NPR, The Onion, Yoko Ono, Room to Read, Questlove, Bob Vila (yes...Bob Vila), Depeche Mode, and, probably the most influential, MC Hammer.
I "retweeted" but I'm not exactly sure what that does since I have no followers. We'll see.

Thing 4

I really like Google Documents. I have two computers at home and obviously my work computer. There are many times where I'm logging into different computers not remembering where I saved something. I also need documents at home that are saved at school and the opposite. Thumb drives, jump drives, travel drives, whatever you want to call them have failed me on too many occasions. Google Docs will have a new space in my heart.

Thing 3: Delicious

My username for Delicious is kirstinbacon.
I can see this being useful because of the access you have to your websites at home and at work. I sometimes get frustrated when I need files that are on the network at school and can't get to them from my home computer. This would allow me to at least access what used to be my favorites on the school computer when I'm doing work at home. I could also see using this with my students and having them access various websites from home to complete assignments and projects.

Thing 3

I have started to "follow" D. O'Rourke, B. Wilmot, K. Turk, J. McGrath, and L. Forberg (English). I'm starting to get the hang of some of these things, and I have to say that I'm excited about this adventure. This is what my life has come to; "adventure" to me is learning how to blog. Yikes.

I have also started to label the posts using education, misc, and technology. Nothing fun; nothing fancy.

This is my first blog; we'll see how it goes. I do look forward to learning more about Web 2.0, and the fact that I might even get to meet the Web 2.0 Fairy is even more exciting. In short, all is well in my world.
