Merlin is a site funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This site has learning links, training calendars and virtual meeting set-ups. A sandbox is available to test and experiment with new technologies and of course there are on-line tutorials.
I have subscribed to Merlin and have explored some helpful newfeed search sites. I think that I prefer Topix.net so far. I like the fact that the town of Bel Air automatically was in place and the site automatically showed articles pertaining to the area.
I am in love with the Library Thing!! What a great idea. I am an avid book lover and collector, really most of my family are constantly supplying the home with books. This is a wonderul and easy way to organized them.
