My tweets are in the sidebar of this blog. I am so glad I can just put everything here. That way I can keep track of where I have been. Whew. I have been a lot of places in a very short time.
Later entry: I took the twitter off the blog because I wanted a simpler follow button, but haven't found what I wanted yet 9/24/08-

Library thing (click this title)

Doing things is the way I learn. You see the widget from Library thing in the side bar. While exploring, I found a similar site http://www.shelfari.com/ for sharing books as well as http://www.delicious-monster.com/ which Catalogs your books, movies, music, software, toys, tools, electronics, & video games. [...] “Wait, I just hold a CD or DVD or video game or book or whatever up to my webcam, and it magically reads the UPC and downloads that item’s cover and all pertinent information about it, and displays all my stuff on photorealistic shelves?”[...]
Delicious library has a very nice look, too. All the more pleasant to work with, my dear. Design is everything.
At this point, I haven't delved into the smartphone world. I keep things simple and inexpensive as possible. But http://krow.livejournal.com/535313.html gave some insite into using a smartphone at the book store where looking at your lists or other's lists of books comes in handy.
When it comes to using all these new tools, I think reading the opinions of other users very helpful as well as informative and they usually offer some extra sources that do similar things.
One thing leads to another. Librarything is a great way to connect with other people from the comfort of your home...or anywhere for that matter.
