Well, I think I've covered all 23 Things and I know I learned a lot. I'm just not sure how useful most of it will be to me but it's nice to be aware of all the possibilities out there. If I spent more time in front of the computer, I might explore a few of these items, but most of the things were odd and not of interest to me. It would be more inviting if you didn't have to keep creating new logins and passwords for each new thing you want to try.
I have downloaded ebooks from the MDconsortium so this information wasn't new. Project Gutenberg was interesting. I was surprised by the variety of titles on the list of Top 100 downloaded yesterday - and glad to see Pride and Prejudice came in at number 12. This might be a good place to play around if we ever had time to just play around.
I used podcast.net and podcastally.com to search of podcasts. I found shows from NPR, my favorite radio station, and lots of stuff from Italy (I tried to understand some of it but couldn't get the volume to be loud enough). I don't have an ipod but if I did, this would be useful.

Yea! Finally a "thing" that I know and am familiar with. Youtube can use up a lot of time and could even be considered dangerous. It's very addicting (and I don't even like playing on the computer much). I have used it to find line dances and I think the talking dogs were hysterical.
