Library 2.0 (s544#9)

The T-shirt I designed as a gift to all participants of ACPL's Library Genius 2.0 program has turned up in the current issue of ALA's American Libraries. I love spontaneous product placement. This brings me to today's topic. In class we are starting to explore 2.0. I finally feel like we a covering territory that is familiar to me. It is so exciting to check the syllabus and see topics that are near and dear to my heart.
Podcasting? Love'em! I just listened to one today about on of my favorite cartoonists, Drew Friedman
Screencast? No Problem! I do them all the time using an great Mac only piece of software called iShowYou.
My laptop has a built in camera and mic and I can use my still camera to make short movies too. Soon the syllabus will return to uncharted territory for me, but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

So, is Jenny wearing your tee shirt? Congrats for making the big time! I'm glad you're enjoying the topics and hope you will continue to speak up because you have much more experience with some of them than I do. I appreciate your input as do your classmates.

Yes congratulations on your t-shirt design!!! ALA mag... go girl!

I am also excited about podcasting, but for the opposite reason. I have never done it before. However, I have 3 little girls and family all over the country. I think it would be a lot of fun to be able to post videos of them on the net. They can be soooo funny.

I wonder though, what types of things would you create podcasts for for a library? Instructional materials like we are doing for class? Storytime for kids who can't make it to the library? Oh, now the ideas are coming to me...

Have fun while you can.
