Finally completing this, but apparantly I am a robot.

Blogger's spam-bots thought that my blog was a blog-bot. So apparently I am so very unoriginal that I am a robot. See it is true, television and not eating your vegetables makes you a drone. Or maybe I am just fooling you all and I am a fem-bot come to observe humans and one day take over this planet! Muh ha ha ha!!!

Anyway, I am writing my final blog for this Learn 2.0, and I know I am excruciatingly late with it. What can I say, I'm a procrastinator, I have a bad memory, and my off desk time is used up by claims returns, emails, and off desk duties. So here I am in August finishing this thing that should have been done weeks ago. AND I won't be able to email anything to anyone yet because I am a robot. Bloody robots.

Hmm, anything else to report? I didn't tile my floor, but I did paint it and have put up shelves and moved some of my stuff out of my mom's living room and kitchen. Work is work, as it always is. I don't want to go back to school in a couple weeks but apparently it is the "best" thing for me to do, so says the world at large. And I am trying to figure out what to do with my life. Oh, and the other day I and a friend communicated with a being from one of the lower planes, who called himself the devil, but I don't believe him.

I am supposed to write two more blogs to make my ten. I am not quite sure what to say...random things I suppose.
I would write about the awesome video the branch I work at put together for the Staff Day event...but if word gets out someone might snatch up the idea...and I don't want to contaminate the think tanks out there.
So what else is there? I cut off all my hair. My shoulders hurt. I am going to tile my bedroom floor tomorrow. I am going to eat some ice cream and go to bed. I didn't completely complete this yet

I am on the final week though. So you want to know what I am going to do with an MP3 player, huh?
Well, I already have an Ipod, that I store all of my music on. But I suppose that is all I would really use the MP3 for as well.
I won't use it for audio books because I absolutely hate listening to them. How can I enjoy a book if I am not reading? Sorry all you who love the audio book, I just can't get into a story, into the character's shoes, if I am not reading, it is probably a concentration issue.
So, yeah, more storage for my growing music collection.

Fourth of July

And I am completing, I don't mind.
Anyway, I liked both LivePlasma and MusicMap, the only difference I really noted in my search is MusicMap gave a wider variety in genre related to the search, where as LivePlasma if you search for a rock group it pretty much produced only bands from that genre. Both good tools though.

As far as the whole sharing music thing goes I am on the fence. I definitely understand the musicians point of view. They are artists and creating something, and though they would like to share it, it is also how they make a living. It is somewhat disrespectful. I mean if you stole a Munch (which has happened by the way) or a Dali or a DaVinci and you were caught you would be arrested, so why not have the same risk involved when it comes to music? Then again I...well, maybe I am just going to plead the fifth. Or how about this...I have known "people" who are "guilty" of burning music for their own personal use. However do I think they should be thrown in jail or stuck with a hefty fine? No, I don', yeah, my opinions on this fight amongst themselves.

So this has grown on me a bit...

I must admit in general I hate sitting in front of a computer for too long. However, thus far this 2.0 process has grown on me. I do find it interesting, though some of these things I was already familiar with, and it has been...oh no, dare I say Yes, I admit it, I am having a bit of fun looking through some of the information introduced here...there, my confession is out.

By the by anyone at Herndon, you have to find the photo of EdPotter on Flickr.


I definitely enjoyed looking through the Catster site, which had some crazy cat videos.
I also found the Chug'd site fun to browse through, and surprisingly informative. These are some quotes from the site I found amusing.

"Beer is proof that God loves us, and wants us to be happy." -- Benjamin Franklin

"Give me a woman who truly loves beer, and I will conquer the world." -- Kaiser Wilhelm II

"Beer: The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems." -- Homer Simpson

Week Six

I really enjoyed looking through the sites, especially What Should I Read Next? and BookMooch.
BookMooch in particular reminded me of something near my Grandma's house in Connecticut. At the local trash yard there was a shed on the same property, and inside people brought all their old, unwanted books and could take as many as they wanted. Most, like my Grandma, would take a book, initial it after reading it, then return it for others to read.
BookMooch, the online Book Shed. Very exciting.
