After having class all day Saturday and reading about Dewey-less libraries all evening, I add my first Web 2.0 nightmare. Literally.
One of the things we did in class was explore Meebo, an instant messaging site. I had lots of trouble in class getting it to work. My computer kept freezing and doing strange things. It was anything but ‘instant’. Later that night I played with it on my own computer and successfully added a Meebo widget to my blog. So far, so good. Things are looking up for me in Meebo-land.
Then last night I dreamt that I was part of a scavenger-hunt where a small statue was being hidden in a murky room overgrown with plants. (Freudians, you have my permission to go wild with this) First you would be alerted by Meebo that the statue had been re-hidden, then you had to find it and Meebo back the location before actually picking up the statue. I was never able to report the location successfully and slowly drove myself crazy. You know how in a dream- print text never looks the same twice? This was pure hell. Plus, at the same time I kept getting messages from my child’s school nurse, that he was sick.
I never discovered exactly who I was contacting. Perhaps some Meebo-gods….
