Thank you for the opportunity to learn more about this stuff and for the patience you have shown and help you have given to us all as we have struggled through.
Some of the sites I visited were not very imaginative (Albany County Public Library) while others (Brooklyn College Library and London, Ontario) were more attractive and lively with music, videos and other links. The sites need to be VERY current and interactive to keep up with the techy users.
Bebo: The Bebo spots by Auckland and Rotorua Libraries was an interesting way to reach young Bebo devotees with the library message.
MySpace: Another social networking tool with an amazing collection of videos both amateur and professional including Tve series episodes from BBC and ABC.
Facebook: I use Facebook mainly to access photos posted by my stepson in Guatemala - I wish I was clever enough to share them because they are fantastic.
I did it with help from Rose.

Amazon Kindle books had 75 results available for purchase from as little as 25c but that one had a very bad review!
I can't get enthusiastic about eBooks even if the format is small however, I can see that people might use them while commuting by bus or train, but then you can always read a REAL book.

I tried again today and with a bit of fiddling, the feed worked and I was able to play the music.

It seem to be all about travel at the moment and all the possibilities to be explored. Where to go and what to do? So many places and so little time/money!
Cruising, walking, trains, cities or countryside - or of course a wonderful combination of them all!

from some of my bookmarked sites. This now gives access to more information from those and other sites should I ever decide to plan a wonderful trip by freighter, train, etc.
