Method 4 - 3 Feeds, Google Reader

On your blog, add links to your 3 feeds and post to your blog about this exercise. (Please include “Method 4″ in the title of your blog post.) What appealed to you about these feeds? Do you see yourself using Google Reader or some other RSS Reader to keep up with certain sites now?




Here are three feeds that I follow. I also use some personal feeds such as Motivational Quotes. What I like about my feeds is that they are short. If I don't have a lot of time (which is all the time!) I can read mostly the headlines and perhaps the first line or two which is usually all that is listed. I included the yoga buzz because I am the certified yoga teacher for my library. I see myself continuing to use Google Reader. I hope to increase my usage. I like the simple view with the white background. With today's overwhelming visual stimulus, it's nice to read a list of news or information presented simply all with the same text size and style. The words are what jump out as important not the text size or color. Also you can easily unsubscribe to something that doesn't interest you over time.

Method 3

Share your impressions and thoughts regarding online productivity tools and cloud computing by posting to your blog. (Please include “Method 3″ in the title of your blog post.) Some jumping off points for your blog post might be: How do you feel about these tools and concepts? Do you see great benefits for use in libraries? Overall, would you say that you are more excited or more cautious/skeptical about cloud computing?

I think cloud computing and online productivity tools are great. It should cut down on incompatibility problems over time. I think this is the tool used for online Webinars. Where you know that everyone in the webinar is looking at the same presentation without formatting problems, etc... I'm excited about cloud computing from the standpoint of traveling lighter. If what I need to access is on the internet, I need to remember to drag less equipment with me. If the site where I'm headed has a computer with internet access, we know that we can get to what we need.
