Learning 2.0: Assignment #9

I must admit that, although I've know about Technorati for a while and find the concept really interesting, I've rarely used the site. I can see how it would be very useful in the library, to assist a patron looking for information on a certain topic or to suggest additional resources.

Besides, there are only so many feeds I can personally handle before I feel overwhelmed -- no matter how simple my feed reader may be!
