Discovering resources

 I'd like to share a technology site that has rescued me more than a few times when I've been stumped on how to handle different internet/computer problems: . Kim calls herself "America's Digital Godess"--a great title, don't you think?
I used to listen to her Radio program on 650 AM at 11:00 on Saturday mornings, though now that I work on Saturdays, I can only squeeze in a few mintues during my  lunchtime. She has daily tech news, tips of the day, and cool videos to watch, and so much more! This week, I learned that there was free software that I could download on my home computer to make scanned documents editable! Who'd a thunk that you could do that for free?

She also has a great way for us to support our troops overseas:  Check it out ;)

It's all about growth

This is a great way to learn and discover things new and fun -- and we get to do it at work!
I appreciate this opportunity to learn online, and use the technology to my advantage--as well as being better able to help our library users in the future. I am looking forward to learning about Flickr and especially Twitter. I am planting seeds and I'm prepared to see flowers.
