Here’s a set from Liz Carroll and John Doyle, called Catherine Kelly’s. I have not seen Liz Carroll live and this is criminal. Must work on this. I met John Doyle after a concert with Eileen Ivers years ago and he is simply adorable, not to mention an amazing musician- even when he breaks strings […]

Web 2.0 Randomness
This seemed like an easy IUL 2.0 “thing” to get out of the way, until I realized how much time I killed doing it! Web 2.0 Awards is a black hole but I’m back and here’s what I liked (that was free and didn’t require signing in to play with): ColorBlender – as my uber-artistically […]
Is it Not Nifty? A Google Document Table of Contents Introduction Features Fun in Other Tabs Introduction In this IUL 2.0 exercise, I am investigating web-based applications. I was intriugued by the Zoho products, but I opted to try out the Google services instead, as I already have a Google account (and I don’t exactly […]
Person, Place or Thing?
Fascinating AND rant-inspiring:http://www.abandonedbutnotforgotten.com/ The website posts photo sets of abandoned (or sometimes just historical and possibly renovated) structures, areas- even towns, all organized by state. The abandoned hospitals and sanitariums are a little creepy but that may be because the photos look like stills from a horror movie set. My imagination tends to run away […]
Hey, did you know Bloomington has a wiki? My husband-person has an article in Bloomingpedia. I’m slightly jealous but ultimately happy and secure in my anonymity. I don’t have much to say about wikis, perhaps because I tend to use Wikipedia almost as much as I use Google. Wikis pretty much rock. Of all of […]
On with an IUL2.0 post, this time on the subject of Library 2.0. This post is more of a rant than a discussion- hence, a beta post. True, it’s been almost two years since I’ve worked in public services but working with teens in a very small public library taught me two things: patrons (whether […]
iGoogle, Yes I Do
I’m avoiding doing any real work on the IU Libraries 2.0 project. Instead I’ll rant about random stuff- some of which IS tech related, so I feel justified. I’m absolutely sick of my homepage on my home laptop, so last night I switched. Usually, I don’t worry about such things but I was playing around […]
Warm and Fuzzy Moment
Not that I need another reason to love Neil Gaiman but I read this and was treated to my warm and fuzzy moment of the day. Gaiman helped a fan propose to his girlfriend at a book signing. Aww…
I’m afraid there will be some overlap in my discussion of technorati‘s searching capabilities with a previous post, so go head there first. Or better, I’ll summarize: I’m not impressed. Searching google does the same for me and it is rare that I need to search solely for blogs. I am, however, intrigued by the […]
Yummy or… not?
I haven’t set up a del.icio.us account and it’s not because I don’t see it’s potential, I just don’t have an immediate use for it at the moment. I am not conducting research (although I should be) and I have WAY too many bookmarks on my home browser, most of which I almost never use. […]
