Okay - name that tune!
I think that the "23 Things" Project, while it had its moments of frustration and irritation, has been overall extremely relevant and worthwhile. In our business, if you snooze, you lose - technology is here, like it or not, and new technology is being introduced seemingly daily - we've got to keep up, or become obsolete. Thank you to everyone statewide who made this project possible!

I am glad the various technologies exist that can provide books in other formats, although I still prefer my books on paper, bound, that I can hold in my hand. I had a very difficult, frustrating time trying to wade thru overdrive, netlibraries, etc - much too time consuming, frustrating, & ultimately fruitless. This all needs to become more streamlined.
I firmly believe, for better or worse, that wikis are taking over the world. I admit (sheepishly) that I do use wikipedia as a resource; however, I am constantly checking it for errors...and have been known to make corrections and post them as I see fit. In terms of library wikis, I have explored th Booklovers Wiki thru Princeton Public Library. Interesting stuff for the book aficiando.
