#14 (Week 6) Technorati and learn how tags work

I had a very good understanding of tags from my technology experience prior to starting this lesson. I did spent some time reviewing Technorati and playing with several tags within the Post / Blog / Video / Pictures. What I found most interesting was the statistics presented in the write up on the School Library 2.0 Blog. It is mind boggling to me that so many people spend so much of their time creating Blogs. It concerns me, as a physical educator that people are spending so much time in front of a computer screen. I will have to admit that (in phases) I am guilty myself.

When I took the course this summer, I remember writing about my shcok that people would spend so much time reading and writing blogs. I was recuperating from foot surgery and sat in my recliner for hours going through the 23 things. It was a great way to learn what's out there, but I did it all in three weeks... too fast. I haven't blogged since I finished the 23rd thing, until I decided to join in again this winter as a refresher. The one new tool I use from the course is del.icio.us and it was actually the hardest for me to grasp. Maybe I'm ready to add one more tool to my tool kit.

Hi Kathie - Happy New Year! I checked back on your blog to see how you are doing. I hope you will have some time to work on the rest of the "things." I clicked on your Napkin Communications blog and wiki, and it looks like you are putting these tools to good use. Great name for the new ones. Hope to "read" you soon here.

When I watched the video on the new features of Technorati I was actually kind of excited. My disappointment when I signed up and my interface didn't look anything like it was , well, not overwhelming, but I just don't like the, what I assume is the old interface. I don't know it is a Mac / Pc platform issue or what, but this old interface is not as user friendly and certainly not appealing.
