Fun with Google

Playing around with Google, finding so much more than just a search engine. I am starting to see how people can spend all day on the Internet, though. SketchUp looks quite cool--I'm going to have to play with that some more. Google Earth doesn't show my house, however, just an empty field. Also, if you aren't too lazy in your searching, you can set up preferences in the general Google Search to cull out things you don't want.

In the beginning...

Blogging is a bit foreign to me, like trying on clothes in a department store dressing room without a door. Others may have no fears about revealing how they feel moment by moment, or what's on their mind about any particular topic. But part of the CTLS 23 Things is going to push me into stuff outside my comfort zone. Which is good, right....?
Being lifelong learner certainly is a nice fit. Working in a library, there's always something new to learn. But this process pushes me away from the books and into more of the newer technology that I'm only passingly familiar with. Time is a giant factor, as the day is full of constant interruptions. Perhaps accepting that my pace may not be as fast as I'd like is just one thing I'll have to accept.
