Web 2.0 - just the beginning
Activity II - Reading Blogs
Team C - Maria, Mary, Sheila, Kathleen

Blogs & RSS Feeds
I found that the hardest part of Activity II was deciding what I was MOST interested in. The possibilities were endless, but in the end I decided that choosing "professional" topics worked best for now. That was not the case with the RSS Feed Reader. I decided to use the Google Reader and found that watching the tutorial video was very helpful. After adding the web addresses for three educationally related blogs, I chose to subscribe to a news site (CNN) and some "fun" sites. I believe that Google Reader will be a great time saver!

http://www.buzzfeed.com/scott/roger-eberts-blog . My brother-in-law has worked with Roger Ebert extensively, particularly in assisting him with the Roger Ebert Film Festival that is held in Champaign-Urbana each year. He sounds like an interesting guy, unfortunately I haven't had an opportunity to attend the festival.
