For a class originally called "60 sites in 60 minutes," although we ran it in several different forms over time. I have no idea how this one is going to turn out, because the PPT featured many videos (since our internet connection could not be relied on to go to a website within a reasonable amount of time, especially at busy times of the day).

  • Our first two sites are places where you need to have accounts. Having accounts at these sites is kind of like a passport to a lot of other websites.
  • Accept the inevitable. Get a Yahoo! Account. You need the email, of course, but today we’ll talk about two sites you need a Yahoo! Account to sign in for – Flickr and Yahoo! TV
  • This slide really covers two sites – charlotte.com and bugmenot Charlotte.com is the Charlotte Observer’s website. Local, nat’l, international news. To read a story, just click the headline Notice on the left side, there are other things to pick from. “News” takes you to more news stories. Uh-oh, they want me to register before I can read this story. I’d rather not – what can I do? Open a new tab and go to Bug Me Not Enter name of site need registration info for Copy and paste user name, password into site If you don’t know how to copy and paste, we’ll talk about it after. We’re on a deadline here, people! Good, it worked and now we can read our story. As a courtesy, we’ll go back to Bug Me Not and let them know this info worked. At Charlotte.com, notice other options like Traffic, Obits, etc.
  • Notice wide variety of news. Each story also includes several links for more information – some have hundreds. Links go to original news sources.
  • Wide variety, like Google, but has different stories featured, video links – better layout? Links generally go to something on the Yahoo! Site, whereas the ones at Google go to newspaper, etc. Notice topic headings at the top, and the “Most Popular” tab If you just print the story, it’ll have all that junk on it. Instead use the “print” button at the bottom for a better format without the ads.
  • This one lets you be the artist
  • This one’s odd, because it’s actually easier to work if you don’t log in!
  • Part of the Audio Archive, so doesn’t count against total of 60! Yay!
