I personally did not enjoy this thing AT ALL! I understand the point of del.icio.us, but I guess I'm not so advanced in my technology needs and skills that I would use this if I was on someone else's computer. I have not figured out how to really share my bookmarks with other people, but I'm sure that it would be beneficial to use with my students and peers. I plan on keeping a website or blog for my classes this next school year, and I feel that I could just as easily share bookmarks on there vs. del.icio.us. I did like how you could see the most popular and even all of the sites that other people on the site have tagged with a particular tag. I would be careful about using this in the classroom with immature students. I'm sure the site wouldn't necessarily open in the district for the students due to firewalls, but I still don't need a student to click on a particular tag to see what is most popular only to come across highly inappropriate sites/titles.
Just a few quick questions/comments:
1) Why did I watch the video about podcasting? I enjoyed it, but I don't really get what that had to do with this exercise.
2) Ma.gnolia does not work; the site says they are to start back up sometime this summer.
3) In regards to Thing #12: Is there any way that I can be updated if someone has left me a comment somewhere on my blog other than me just looking through my blog?
