Web 2.0 Wednesday: Tell Us Something Unique About Where You Live

This week's Web 2.0 Wednesday activity is inspired by Ines and TJ. Thanks especially to Ines who sent me several Web 2.0 ideas. If you have any, please email them to me or leave me something in comments.

One of the beauties of Web 2.0 is how it connects us to people from all over the world, in different cultures with different ways of life. This gives us wonderful opportunities to learn from each other. So here's this week's activity:

Use a Web 2.0 tool to tell us something unique and interesting about where you live.

You can:

  • Take a picture (or several) and upload them to Flickr or to your blog.
  • Write about your hometown in your blog.
  • Create a Powerpoint presentation and upload to Slideshare.
  • Record a podcast describing something wonderful about where you live.
  • Create a Voicethread presentation with narration--this also lets people respond with their own audio comments.

As always, the possibilities for expressing yourself here are endless. Be sure to bookmark your creation on del.icio.us with the tag, "web2.0wednesday." Use the same tag for Technorati. If you'd like, you can also leave me a link in comments here. And be sure to check out what other people are doing and leave a comment.

Remember--this is "no pressure" fun with Web 2.0, so enjoy yourself!

UPDATE--Check out comments for some GREAT examples of this week's challenge.

Hi Michelle, thanks for your blogging encouragement - once a week updates are manageable for me. I'm sorry to have missed last week's event. My post this week is at http://tinyurl.com/54wpn3

Hi Simon--so glad to have you join in this week! Your video is great, although I'm jealous that you live so close to such beauty. :-)

I created a poem of my city and a podcast.


Kevin, your poem is wonderful! I love the creativity here!

I made a map and threw in some pictures I've taken.


I created a voicethread describing a place in Buenos Aires called Caminito.

Hope you like it!

Hi, Michelle. I decided to post a couple of pictures of my office. I'm so proud of how far it's come since I started working there.

I could not access your VoiceThread.
Can you repost?

Here's what makes Seattle unique!

Sorry...here are the links....



Hi, everybody.

Here's a little bit of me, Brasilia, my hometown and Key west, where I live now. Thanks again for inspiring me. Though I had created the bubbleshare before, I totally remixed it! Fun. Can't wait to see your cities!

Hi Everyone
here are some glimpses of the plant-life, the changing seasons, and some of the other residents in my own part of the world, my bush home 'Yarrawonga' (place of trees). I created it on Animoto a while back.
Hope you enjoy.


Well I enjoyed this one (got so overwhelmed by the comment challenge (though it was a great idea!)). My post at http://tinyurl.com/68not2. Looking forward to reading some of the other responses. Another idea (similar really): "What do you see from your window?"

You guys are AMAZING--so many beautiful photos and so many ways that you all chose to express yourselves in this challenge!I'm in awe of the creativity here. Thank you so much for sharing!

Kia ora Michele!

Sorry to give you a headache thinking about Chem Abstracts! Here's some South Pacific scenery to calm your nerves. My Web 2.0 Wednesday post is of Middle-earth, of course.

Sorry to get to this so late, but here is a video I made last year in Doha, Qatar.


Sorry forgot to track this comment.

A first attempt at many new things. I wrote a bit about why Kansas is such a special place. http://teachingtechie.typepad.com/learning/2008/06/kansas.html


Hi Everybody,
Although I'm late, I hope you don't mind to take a look at this "Path along the Coast" where I invite you all for a walk: http://stora.edublogs.org/2008/07/11/web20-wednesdays-2/
In the meanwhile, I'm visiting all your special places and loving them.
Thank you,
