In future fewer things to learn with lots of repetition. Even though I've done all 23 in a week I can't really remember many things. Plus while doing it my excel sheet with all my usernames and passwords got lost.
And you should start with the fun things like Online Image Generator.
That's all - glad I'm done! PS The post time is in California time not Maryland time.
I did download a Gutenberg picture book to see what it looked like. Not a picture book when the pictures aren't there!
The only thing I could really see me using downloaded books would be for reference - cookbooks, dictionary etc.

For library training of staff it would be good as long as its not blurry. It would be a good way to train staff in their available time and being able to watch repeatedly until you picked up whatever new skill is a benefit. Also saves on gas and travel time.
My question would be if anyone takes a video of you and posts it on YouTube what is your ability to have it removed. Is there some kind of authorization that has to be obtained from you? There should be. I think its a scary new world.
The other problem would be viewing something that is unacceptable to you. How do you filter so things like that don't appear? I don't want trash in my head.
Here is my first zoho document written for my Maryland libraries learning 2.0 #18. While I don't like smiley faces the one with the shades is cool.
I can insert a picture. Resizing was a little ackward. There is no explanation of what anchor does. But most everything else is understandable. What I love is that you are not tied to a computer to get your documents. Things like this will make working from home more of a possibility.
