Thing 21

Podcasts. Unless I absolutely have to (like for these exercises), I try not to listen to them. I prefer to read instead, because then I can focus in on what interests me, rather than listening to someone/something else. It's kind of like reading a book as opposed to listening to one. I'm the type of person who likes to focus on the actual plot, which I can't do if I'm listening to one, because I tend to zone out from time to time.

That aside, I realize that there are people out there who think they are the coolest thing since sliced bread, so I'll just let you all continue in your opinions.

I think I've managed to add the RSS feed of PALINET to my blog. I'm on their listserve and never pay any attention to it. Maybe now, I'll be more on track of it all (Ha, ha, ha...)

Thing 20

Well, here is the URL for the little blurp I watched. It provided some levity for the day. I didn't know they even had rabbit jumping shows.....

I'm not particularly fond of this tool. I watched a couple of little filmlets, and I don't really see the point. It's kind of like Funnies Home Videos. If I filmed myself or my family, why would I want to broadcast it on tv or post it on the Internet?

But the bunnies are pretty cute....

Thing 19

I think that this could be a very useful step. I just picked one, Propsmart, and found a lot of things that can be really useful, particularly within a library. Propsmart is for real estate, which I picked because I enjoy looking at open houses and going through house plans. The cool thing about this site is that you can search by zip code or name of town, and then look for houses for sale and apartments for rent, and it will even show you on the map where each property is located. This could be very useful for people who are looking to move, whether they're new to an area, or are moving to a specific area. The only downside was that I didn't prefer how their filters were set up (when I'm looking for a house, I want to look at properties up to a certain price, not necessarily at a specific number -- but that's just me, others could be different).

Again, a very useful procrastination tool. Here is the link if anyone wishes to play...

Thing 18

Ok, THIS is way super cool. I love to write, and I'm always having various plotlines and stories floating around in my imagination. How come nobody told me about any of this before?

I can definitely see this as a major procastination tool, in addition to being loads of fun...
