I picked couple sites to try. Wordle was one of my favorites, the little application generate word clouds based on the text you provided. In my last job as a medical librarian, we synthesis lots of medical literature to provide evidence for medical practice, I may suggest to them to try this tool to get some extra help with the literature synthesis.
I’ve used some sites/services from webware 100, but still discovered lots of interesting sites, Etsy is a neat site, although it is mainly a shopping site, I can foresee that I will start to visit it just for getting some cool ideas for art projects for my kids.
Go2Web20.net is cool, I found Famento, a family history site very useful. I will definitely give it a try , to record my own family stories, especially kids stories for them to refer back when they grow up.
Thanks so much for setting up this learning program. Although it is a busy summer for me, I tried hard to get through each session and to read as many posts as I can, I learned a lot and really enjoyed it. Big thanks go to James, Kyle, Jenny, Tricia, Sue and Pam!
I'm a huge fan of web 2.0 (which should probably be web 2.5 by now, right?) sites so I have used a lot of these sites. I am a big fan of Mint (I don't worry about internet security nearly as much as most and probably not as much as I should, so I don't worry about internet finance that much.) and of course, google is the master. I've also gotten a lot of use out of Remember the Milk especially when combined with gmail using firefox.
I'm now thoroughly addicted to Goodreads and to FaceBook. Goodreads is letting me keep a virtual book list (instead of my old Word table) and FaceBook has let me get in touch with a lot of folk I'd lost touch with over the years.
