I am beginning to hate snow!! This sight is what the gentleman who shares a room in our library building had to face when he opened his door a few days after the big winter storm of 2009. Flickr is my choice for photo sharing. I am comfortable with it and it is easy to use. I have a personal account and an account for the library to share all the photos of our events.

I didn't get around to attending a class this week or listening to an archived one, but I did recently attend the Kansas tax class using Wimba. It was fairly easy to set up after I got past the java issues on my computer and I enjoyed the fact that I could attend without having to drive two hours for a one hour class. There was one thing that was a little distracting in the class though and that was the chat feature. It is a great feature, don't get me wrong, but as I was listening to the presenter, chat messages kept popping up and I found myself trying to read them and not listening as closely as I should have. It was my first Wimba class so I'm sure as I use it more often I will get used to the two different methods of speaking. All in all it was a good experience and have encouraged my co-workers to take some classes as well.
