The Dewey Decimal Quiz was fun, because it let me cheat! Of course, I ginned the system by using 590 as my favorite number. This reminds me of how I let my son cheat at the little math game we used to play when he was 3 or 4. I figured that if he was smart enough to count ahead and do multiplication in his head at 4, then let him cheat. Here is my results:
Barbara Beardsley's Dewey Decimal Section: 590 Animals (Zoology)
Class: 500 Science
Contains: Math, astronomy, prehistoric life, plants and animals.
What it says about you: You are fascinated by the world around you, and see it as a puzzle worth exploring. You try to understand how things work and how you can make them better. You might be a nerd.
I set up a Delicous account several months ago because Rachel Rubin told me that she used her own account frequently, and was kind enough to give me a quick tutorial. Going through the 23 things has prompted me to re-visit my own Delicious account.
Tagging shows up in many of the social networking sites, but I think that Delicious is an excellent site for me to use, because I can hang onto interesting tidbits of information without using a post-it note, or computer print-out.
My Delicous account is linked on this blog. If you have the time, look at the Hill Business Library site from Minnesota.
I set up a Twitter account and posted something, which was interesting. I couldn't see the attraction, until my colleague Nancy R gave me a brief Twitter tutorial. I am now following several people, and NPR. My twitter "handle" is bbeardsley59, which is not at all anonymous.
Mike Bowers & the staff of the Ohio SBDC @Columbus State Community College is using twitter in a really interesting way. They recently used their social networking site to announce a tour of Ohio Stadium for the Central Ohio tweeting community. I forwarded the info to Largesse, LibraryJoy and Jimmer, but you can look at the info yourself at http://sbdcfreeadvice.ning.com/. Look for the Events listing on the right side of the page.
