I’ve been meaning to create an account at LibraryThing for quite some time now but the thought of cataloging my entire library… I would definitely need to upgrade to a paid account ($25 for a lifetime membership seems pretty reasonable to me). I decided to add a few books to my library that I’m currently […]
I created an avatar at tektek.org. I had a dream in which I was wearing a coat just like this… EDIT: By way of update, I bought a coat just like this in September.
The Free Library of Philadelphia blog pointed me to this post at Centripetal Notion: go ask google or wikipedia who Brian Dettmer is and then check out some of his artwork. Blink. I am completely stunned. I can’t stop looking. Amazing. I haven’t had a lot of exposure to altered books (what I’ve seen thus […]
Not quite as filling as turkey leftovers, but just as satisfying… I appreciated the related tags box that Technorati displays after you execute a search.

On with the L2.0 exercises, this time on RSS and newsfeeders… I’ve known about newsreaders for quite some time but I’ve never really gotten into using them. I do, however, depend on RSS feeds, which I usually pile into either my bookmarks toolbar or bookmarks folder in Firefox. Bloglines is pretty easy to use. The […]
The results are in! I think my fav is the wooly mammoth. Fuzzy bookcarts rock and so does the strip Unshelved. Go take a looksie.
I’m posting once again for the L2.0 project- this time on three of my favorite add-ons for Firefox. 1. Cooliris Previews – mouse over any link and see a small preview of that page in a pop-up box. This is an excellent tool for scanning through google search results quickly! 2. Firebug – my new […]
Wee! I had fun with the bubblr API, which allows you to make your own comic strip using flickr images. Here’s one I did pretty quickly (click to view larger or to make your own!): http://www.pimpampum.net/bubblr/bubblr_blog.swf?id=10274
I set up a flickr account over a year ago just to see what the fuss was about. I uploaded three photos and then promptly ignored the account. I am not a huge picture-taker. If you were to collect photo evidence of my existence between the years 2004-present, you would probably be compelled to file […]
I checked out the new Golden Compass movie trailer recently. One word: YAY! Iorek looks amazing- to my immense relief.The website offers to generate your daemon. Here’s mine:http://goldencompassmovie.com/goldenCompass_blog.swf?id=362330 I wish my best friend was king of the armored bears…
