Hi everyone. Two weeks left till our end date (10/12) but it's plenty of time to finish. If you need any help or have questions let me know just don't all wait till the 11th please.

I updated the participants list to highlight the people who have finished so congrats to all of them and give them a pat on the back if you can figure out who is who that is. If I missed anyone just let me know and I'll straighten it out.

Week 8

It's week 8 and we're almost done. If you haven't kept up during the summer don't worry your not alone. We'll be continuing the program even after next week so everyone can experience all of the 23 things. If you are still working on some of the previous weeks don't feel pressured to keep up. It's summer and this is supposed to be fun. Just keep working on it as time allows and when an end date is decided on we'll announce it. Until then just keep asking me if you run into any problems or have any questions.

Week 7 - Wiki Week

It's wiki week. This is an easy week with only two things in it. The week focuses on wikis. The biggest and best known wiki is probably Wikipedia. Everything in a wiki is user submitted so you have to remember that some times bad information can be submitted but since anyone can edit a wiki it is usually fixed. Wikipedia even has an online reference desk where people can leave questions for volunteers to answer. Play around with the different wikis and post your thoughts on you blog. Remember blog posts don't have to be long and complicated. The post can just be your quick thoughts on a thing and if you found it useful or not.

Reminder about Blog entries

Just a reminder for everyone about their blog entries. The blogs are just a way for you to reflect on the individual things. You don't have to incorporate every different thing into a blog entry. If you don't like or don't think you would use the thing then your blog post can be just that. The main purpose of the 23 things is to experience new web technologies. Have fun exploring and just post some thoughts on your blogs.

Broken link this week

The first link for doesn't work anymore. It was supposed to take you to a 12 minute video on the site. Instead you can try this 8 minute video which is by the same group.

Thanks for everyone who called this to my attention.
