#4 Blog About Technology

For this thing, simply blog about anything technology related. Yes, it can be anything that relates to technology! You just need to share a few thoughts.

PS: Also be sure add at least one comment to another participant’s blog. That’s what online communities are all about – connecting and communication. 🙂

  1. I’ve enjoyed the week 3 exercises. I’m still a bit confused about how to use photos from other people that are on flickr.

  2. I agree. I think we have to play with flickr a little more.

  3. I think I added a couple of pictures, and a comment but now I don’t know where to find them! The navigation is confusing for me, but I am determined to soldier on! I’m guessing that practice makes perfect.

  4. I thought that I had uploaded some photos to Flickr, but I found a link to Picasa and had already uploaded the photos there. I’m not sure, but I believe that Flickr and Picasa serve the same purpose. Right?

  5. I like learning about all these tools. I used Flickr before to view a friend’s photo of her chickens but I never used the neat mash up tools before. so much to explore and learn.

  6. I’d like to add a comment to someone else, but I think I’m in the wrong spot :0

  7. I had worked with flickr before with my own personal photos. During a long conversation with Mara, I came to the conclusion that it would take some work to separate my photos. I wanted to post a few library-related ones but not have them link to all of my personal ones. It may be that if I work more with “organize” that I could achieve this.

    I’m on to the next challenge, however. I haven’t been able to save an entire word spelled out in the spelling feature of flickr. I can save an individual block in a word but I wanted to capture it all and put it in a folder. My assistant and I are stymied. Has anyone been successful with this?

  8. Hi Berta,
    If you’re in Spell with flickr, highlight all of the letters in the ‘on flickr’ box at the bottom of the screen, right click and choose copy (or hit ctrl and c). then right click and choose paste (or ctrl v) and you can put your word wherever you want.

  9. I watched this video and was thinking of how amazing it truly is to see accompanied by sign language. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKnF9CCYQPQ

  10. so is this the blog where I leave a note? I don’t think I understand this blogging thing. Help!

  11. ok! I think I have it figured out. I should stop attempting to do this on friday afternoons after a reference workshop has filled my brain to capacity. Leave a note on my blog!

    • Heather, you may not see this but it made me laugh, your comment about the timing of learning these things–hard to do after a full day! I hope it got easier for you.

  15. Just a comment in general. Because of this experience I want to share something with everyone. Did you know that the Inn used in the film “Nights in Rodanthe” needed t o be relocated to save it? I watched a live feed with a friend on Mon. Jan. 18th. Today I entered the world of UTube and found multiple videos of the move. “Moving Nights in Rodanthe” was very interesting. If you didn’t know about the move, check it out.

  16. I’m not sure by blog is connected to this process. Could somebody tell me how to do that?

  17. Be glad. What was once a mystery to you (blogging, Flickr, etc.) is now part of your “toolbox.” To those of us doing this later, it’s a comfort to see what your path was. Some perspective: I’m trying to explain (as I learn) to my 89-year-old grandmother what a blog is, the function of Twitter, etc. She was born into a world where a telephone (in rural Vermont) was a luxury and horse and wagon was a more viable mode of transportation than an automobile. She is fascinated by the internet and what we can do. What a time to be alive.
