Thing #2: RSS Feeds – http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/blog/290000629/post/1000030500.html
I discovered the magic of RSS feeds a while ago, started with Bloglines (excellent for beginners) but have now moved on the using Google Reader, which has a lot more functionality. I’m not totally in love with all the features, I find it a bit cumbersome to move around, but I do like the “Discover” feature, where Google will look at the content of the RSS feeds you subscribe to, then make suggestions of other blogs and RSS feeds you may be interested in.

Because I’m aiming to learn new things during this program, I’ve signed up for a NetVibes page to have a play with – http://www.netvibes.com/stainedglasswaterfall

NetVibes looks really interesting, I can’t wait to have a bit more time to play with it.
