Last Friday’s Crowd

Christine Boese did a really good job linking to everyone at last Friday’s IF:Book meeting. I’m glad, because I’m still dog-paddling through my homework, with no relief in sight. Tonight, two more chapters of Sebald after I finish this week’s workshop critiques. (I love getting into the mind of the other writers in my class. […]

Nice Post from the IF:Book Meeting

Clifford Johnson, a rather sparkling physicist who has a delightful blog about science, has pictures and a nice summary from Friday’s IF:Book meeting (or the academic blog salon, as it were).

Webcred and Librarians: A Bit of Google Juice

One of the most satisfying experiences at Webcred was meeting Andy Carvin of the Digital Divide Network–a crucial ally in our battle to bring people across the “last mile.” (Doesn’t that sound like an essay?) You can hear my comments to the Webcred conference and read a summary from the “last mile” point of view […]

One of Two Librarians at the Blogging and Journalism Conference

For the last few days I’ve been at the ALA Midwinter conference in Boston, and when I’ve blogged at all it’s been on PLA’s collective conference blog. This a very intentional post intended as a greeting to both my regular readers and to people finding this site through this list of participants at the Blogging […]
