It's becoming clearer

I think I'm finally getting this Web 2.0 thing. I've been hearing the term thrown around for a while now but had never really stopped to inquire what was, mostly out of fear of looking stupid. Well, thank goodness for LIS 5433! I read my assigned articles this week and hello! I love web 2.0! I myspace, I flickr, I blog (well, I'm a far better reader than blogger), and Google Maps has been my choice of direction finders for a long time. I've been participating in this crazy 2.0 stuff for a while now (I even had a friendster account when those were cool) but my uneducated self just thought I was spending too much time on the internet. I guess I've just been preparing myself for my future profession. Now if I could learn html I'd be set.

"If I'm going to get a story, I'll get a movie."

This is a quote from the yesterday's AP article that states one in four adults did not read a SINGLE book last year. This just blows my mind! Well, initially it rendered me speechless because I love books with a capital L and the thought of 25 percent of adults not cracking open a true crime novel (my mother's weakness) or Oprah's latest book club pick (does she still do those?) just makes me feel sad. Then I read that it was a poll of 1000 adults which doesn't seem like a ton of people to me. But yet 250 grown people not reading ONE book does seem like 249 too many. So it still upsets me. 'Mon People (as my two year old puts it), don't just rent the movie. They're never as good.
