Technorati does not seem to have much relevance for me. I found that there were 30,696 hits in the Blog Posts, 30,674 in the advanced search and 554 in the tags only search. This was fine but I am not sure what I am looking for. I suppose it would be great if I had something specific to search for but at present I am too occupied trying to find my way around all this stuff. One thing I did find a little disconcerting is that Scientology is constantly advertising on many of the pages I went to. Well, I will keep trying but I dont think I am a very social being when it comes to the blogesphere - perhaps more time spent on the computer might make a difference, do you think?

Looking around Del.icio.us has made me even more frustrated than ever. I can see enormous potential for it to be a very useful tool in many ways ie at the library, in the office. It would be a great help for someone doing a large amount of legal research and having to put all the cases on one topic in one bookmark with appropriate tags to the cases. It would keep everything very clear, conscise and available at the touch of a key. All this would be great if I could only see how to create a "tag". Am I completely thick? Have others had the same problems as I have? These tools are great so long as you are able to get into them! I will just have to ask someone when the time is right but it is not at all clear from the site just how to create a tag. I had better not go on about it, had I.
