#11 Folksonomies Library Thing

Library Thing is dangerous for people addicted to reading. It is a fab tool. I typed in two titles: Blue Like Jazz and Ragamuffin Gospel, also the fiction character Amelia Peabody and the author John Twelve Hawks, with excellent results.
An added good feature is that you can click on the names of people who own the book and see what else they read, for reading ideas.

#10 Technorati part 2

I tagged yesterday's post with two words, and an hour later checked links at Technorati, typed in the two words and voila, it found my blog entry. Bless its smart little heart.

#10 Tagging Week 6 Technorati

Ok, I will post here so I can do the pinging exercise.
I need a topic to ping about, I think. How about growing peonies?
Where I live is generally not cold enough in the winter for peonies to thrive, so I'm considering researching online and finding some warm climate peony varieties.
The concept of pinging is excellent, esp. the pingomatic.

Second Life (week 5)

I read "Rev up your avatars", and learned that Second Life has 300 librarians involved, and offers categories including book talks, publishers, library research skills, and medical library. I plan to look at the Reuters island.
