Just a few last words

It is now 2 a.m. but I am determined to finish this off.

The exercises seemed to take more time than I anticipated, but that might be just me.

Moving between the 23 things blog, the wiki, my own blog--that was tedious. And when I had to go back to refer to parts of a given week, I found myself being brought back to the first week of the month and having to scroll through again to find my place. That might also be just me, but I did find that very frustrating.

Did someone explain about the request to "identify yourself" when posting a comment by Anonymous or name/url or other? As I mentioned, it suddenly happened for me, but I don't know why, and I was confused when I first ran into that.

By the way, as I've been working with this blog this evening I noticed (or were they there previously?) that I have 2 followers. When I click on their icons, I read Radio Web Log and Radio Blog (I think). At first that appeared dismaying. Now I wonder--are these CLP staff members?

In the break week, the text suggested we had learned about avatars. I am embarrassed to say that I do not remember reading about goodness, did I miss that? Was Second Life or whatever part of these things?

And--just curious--did anyone besides me realize that Thing 10 and Thing 13 were missing?




  1. Esther thanks for paticipating and working on this project with us. We wanted to let you know that on 10/2 we are bringing Helene Blowers to town (the 23 things program founder)to meet and greet and also to hear her talk about how we can take what we learned and apply it to our library communities.

  2. Whoops - I just realized I didn't answer ALL your questions in my e-mail, Esther. Week #10 was the break week, and we accidentally skipped #13 during YouTube week. But we're giving everybody the benefit of the doubt, as you probably did more than the minimum anyway during this whole program!

    As for avatars, they were briefly mentioned in the 23ThingsN@ wiki, during the week on blogs:

    Scroll down to "avatar generators"!

    Hope that helps...
