I'm not sure what happened to this post but here it is again. I feel that Wiki's would be a useful tool in the workplace to share ideas with groups-allowing everyone to have a say and also having it seen by all. It could also allow large groups to have discussions without having to find a time and place that would be convenient for everyone involved.
I have learned a lot from this program. The challenge will be to find time to use some the sites so I can remember how to use them. I liked using YouTube to see/listen to old music videos. If we are offered another program like this I would like to participate. Next time though, I will do my blogs as I go along instead of waiting until the end to do them.
After playing with Net Library and then Project Gutenburg, I was able to download "Beowulf" with assistance from Chris. These systems would be very useful to our commuter customers. It would give them access to audio books 24/7. Now if I can only teach my wife how to download items....

I looked at all the directories. I listened/watched several podcasts but could not see how to put it in my blog. There were several sports related pods that I liked-it seemed like I was watching the news on TV. Again, I can see that this would be a helpful tool to customers in their search for info.
This is the short list? Only a 123 that I wish I had time to play with more of them! I was able to check out 'Fuzz Mail". Not sure what the point of that was-to see how fast (or slow )you type an e-mail? Arcaplay has lots of games. I tried out Frantic, and MarioCart Underground. I also checked out "Guess The Google" but it would not tell you the correct answer.
