What a cool idea this was. LibraryThing helped me search for memorable books from elementary and high school (To Kill a Mockingbird, Lord of the Flies). This online library is especially helpful for those booklovers and you can even look at other people's catalogs to see if you like anything that they have. I could see a lot of similarities with this and Facebook except for the fact that it's for books. Instead of connecting with friends of the past you get to connect with old novels. :)
Everyone's always wanted their face on some money so try it out! This generator was so easy and you can upload any image. There are other currencies to choose from so have fun with it. I picked this generator because the other ones sounded lame and not very tasteful (if you know what I mean). I would definitely use the Generator Blog in the future to make some gag gifts or send funy messages to friends. Enjoy!

YouTube is fun to use because there are so many random videos to find. You can learn new dance steps, find dinner recipes, learn how to make paper mache, or just laugh at all the fools who posted their videos. The content of the videos is open so people need to take caution because anything will come up. Using this site for classroom purposes would be a great tool to help explain or demonstrate an activity/lesson. YouTube is easy and convenient and kids are very familiar with it so it can be highly useful for any classroom. For learning how to create arts and crafts projects or class activities there is TeacherTube which is teacher version of YouTube. I have used this tool and it is great because real teachers post their videos of different activities.

I would say that this is an easy and convenient way to tag items at your own risk. This idea of tagging is essential for the web to work and your input may be the missing link for someone else on the other side of the globe. Since research from the web is one of my main resources I would say that delicious is a valuable tool in this process. It's easy to use and I can find almost anything with it. The ability to research with this tool seems more practical and you are given a broader variety of results for whatever you're looking for.
