    In closing I have developed during this course in relation to my prior knowledg of the internet as a New Media Artist. I come from a very different place then most as I used the Internet to create art using HTML, whilst on my professional development placement I came across two research librarinas who used to use HTML in daily library practices. Wilst I embrace the Web 2.0 ideals and use Social Network software I am a little sad as artist like JODI.org and myself have to reinvent what they do on the internet. The internet is not as fresh as it once was with the same templates for everything from an artistic perspective no new boundaries are being broken as every website looks the same with the exact same design principles. From the perspective of using Web 2.0 in the classroom and library I already do but what this course has introduced to me is a network of like minded individuals pusching the boundaries of library services. Drawing on the avalibity of the prethera of tools on the Internet. I have started talking to my assistant about what we can do and we have decided on times to social network in the library.

    Evaluation
    Starting INF506 was a whirl wind I had accounts in many of the social networking sites that I was required to join, some I could not remember the details to login so I joined again. As I stated on the OLJI was really eager to get started on using these tools as a part of learning. Looking back on that weekend I remember being keen to experience the social networking tools as a part of learning but unfortunately the only one I kept with was Facebook and I was already using Facebook. It was good to chat to students this way and I used Facebook more then I have ever used the forum. The modules and experiences I really enjoyed were relating to Library 2.0 in general especially Meridith Farkis and all Second Life sessions.

    To expand on the Facebook interactions once I finished at work for 2011 I found I would check Facebook a couple of times a day. Participating in a CSU course this way was a lot more personable then the Forum and as I stated I did not use the Forum much during my studies at CSU as I found it confusing and often just annoying. The Facebook INF506 was the complete opposite experience I even set it up on my iPhone so I could get instant notifications, it is still sending them this minute. From the advice I received on Facebook I added Yoono to my iPhone and dropbox to all my devices. As I stated above the highlight for me was the sessions in Second Life I really felt connected to the group and the learning experience. After listening to the presentations in Second Life I was able to realise the potential of Second Life but also understand how much of a learning journey we all experienced. Although it was a Virtual experience I still felt a ‘Vibe’ with all the fast typing and clapping occurring in Second Life. After each session I felt a buzz of inspiration to try as hard as possible to bring my school on board a Library 2.0 journey and eventually a Web 2.0 one.
    In relation to the modules so many moments cemented for me that libraries are moving forward and paving new territory.

    the internet a proram art piece called Packet Garden creates a beautiful art work based on your internet usage this work brings home just what the internet is about. I surgest to anyone who uses the internet to download this work just to get an idea of how many packets are created whislt using the internet and where those packets go. When I first used this work I was shocked as to home many countries I visited in just a two hour time frame on the internet. It demonstrates visually how open your computer is whilst surfing the web. This becomes even more alarming when young people upload inmages, personal details and contact details to Facebook.

    NEW MEDIA ART"we explore the computer from inside,and mirror this on the net, when a viewer looks at our work, we are inside his computer... And we are honored to be in somebody's computer. You are very close to a person when you are on his desktop. I think the computer is a device to get into someone's mind. Dirk Paesmans, JODI.In relation to visualisation of the internet

    new territory.
    Starting with the OLC report that gives advice and predictions relating to social networking in relation to the library. I have always considered privacy during my Masters of Visual Arts I read a lot about hacking and identity theft, this was back in 2004-2006. At this time I created social networking accounts but never put my real details. If your internet connection is open then all of the contents of your computer are open to hackers, no matter what security you have. With this in mind I do use the internet for banking and other activities that have my real details I do this out of laziness not trust. The OLC raises good points but I tend to be a little paranoid after my own research that I stated above.
