Internet Librarian 2008 Pre-conferences, Day 1

October 18, 2008 at 9:30 pm Leave a comment

Steven Cohen did a great presentation this afternoon on 130 web tools in 160 minutes! Okay, so there weren’t quite 130 tools, but he came mighty close.  I consider myself to be fairly up-to-date on technology, but I hadn’t heard of many of these apps before.  There’s a good reason for that – still using IE instead of Firefox on most of my workplace computers.  Even if I DID have Firefox, our PCs are frozen and we don’t have permissions to download stuff.  Bummer!!  I guess I’ll have to go home and start adding apps to my own notebook.  I was impressed with the RSS tools and will be incorporating them into my MLC class scheduled for early November.  Personally, I can’t wait to use Picnik for editing images and Pandora for creating my own social music site.  Media Convert and Zamzar will come in handy for my file conversions.  I’m going to have to take Steven’s list back home and play with stuff before I know how many I’ll end up using on a regular basis.  Even if I only pick two or three, this session was worth its weight in knowledge!
