25 Things has made me use some services which I’d registered for but hadn’t really looked at in any depth.

I’m still a bit dubious about the ‘wisdom of crowds’ stuff but I can see that some things like tagging will work  if enough people are involved and contributing.
At present, we don’t get many enquiries that directly relate to the Web2.0/Library2.0 type of stuff. Having a bit more idea about how things work though does help to understand where things might go.   The main use will be in communication with our users. RSS and some of the other services should be useful for work but I will need to have the details kept somewhere that I’ll find them again and remember to use them. 

I enjoyed using LibraryThing and may continue to use it – well I am a librarian aren’t I?

I’m OK with using Flickr but have difficulty understanding why so many people make their photos available for anyone to see so for that reason I find it a bit annoying to use.

I will try and keep devoting some of my time to keep up with Web2.0  and Library 2.0 related sites(and soon Web 3.0?).  25things has help me to do this and it has been a useful and enjoyable little course.
