Pro vs Con

I think that both of these sites - plaxo and linkedin are good for connecting with others and could be helpful career wise. However Linkedin is more popular or visable to everyone, I think. I had never heard of plaxo until this class.
However I think that Facebook, kind of does this as well and people are probably on their more often. But professionally facebook would not be the way to go. I'd probably use linkedin.

Professional Portfolio

Creating my professional portfolio was fun but frusterating at times. It was definintely another good experience using new technology that will hopfully help me me the future though. I also think that creating a webpage like that could be usage for other things too like sport clubs or maybe a small business. Overall it was user friendly and fun to create.

Here's my link:

Web 2.0 Awards

While going through the lists of awards for web 2.0, I found a lot of different websites I had never heard about. But I recognized and use many of the top 3 awarded websites. A couple of the fun ones, that I never knew about were cocktail builder and hair mixer - those were fun to play around with. For collaborative writing and word docs - Google docs is definitely something I want use in the future. As for the things I use know and pretty often would have to be facebook, craigslist and google maps or yahoo maps.

Searching through the library thing website was interesting. It was fun to read some of the reviews from other people too.
Here's my link to the books I chose.

Where I work

.Alisha's pool


After exploring and podcast I'm still undecided, on whether I like it or not. It's definitely a good idea and I'm sure people find it helpful and/or useful. I just don't think it's for me.
This is the podcast I decided to subscribe to because it said it had the latest health, exercise and sports nutrition tips on it. I thought would be interesting to hear about.

You Tube

You Tube has almost every video you could ever want to see or not see. Depends on what you're looking for but it could be useful or just for entertainment. How to videos are usually pretty helpful. Weird fact - I've also seen myself on You Tube - surprise! I can see this website being helpful in a classroom, when you want to show a how to or what not to do. I can also see this site being a a good "time waster" for students who just want to browse on it. But as I was going through it today, I ran across the video from work. It was one of our most recent ads. I heard about it but never saw it. So I was glad to see it up..this is my YMCA Association in the South Bay.


Technorati -what? This website was not nearly as interesting as the others we've explored in Kin 710 so far. When I searched for "kinesiology" there were no results under posts, when I searched under blogs, there were 28 blogs that came up. I couldn't believe it!
So I tried another search, "physical education" again not many post (only 71) and blogs (76) WOW! This actually shocked me a little because I really didn't like this one and won't be using it in the future.


After exploring yet another site, I had never heard about nor did I think I'd ever be on something like that. However, I think it would very helpful in life. This tool definitely had potential for anyone and everyone to use. It's not only an easy way to bookmark sites but you can also share them with others and access them anywhere. That really nice, especially now a days when people are not always home to use their computer or carrying their laptop with them.
This site would be very useful when doing research, especially if you aren't always on your own computer. This way you can be anywhere and look up the sites you tagged for a project or a paper.
When it comes to teaching, YES! I think this would be helpful as well. I could see this site being a great tool for teachers to share ideas and network with one another. Sharing ideas is the best part, I think, why re-invent the wheel when you could use someone else idea or spark new ideas with a website you saw.
This could be very helpful in the future!
