I’ll be in Helena, Montana next Thursday, May 25th presenting the “Keep Up: Practical emerging technology for you and your library” workshop. Isn’t it a lovely bit of serendipity that the host site, the Lewis and Clark Library, is located at 120 S. Last Chance Gulch? Plus, if you’re a fan of the show, it totally sounds like a street name out of Deadwood. Seriously though, Montana library folks are notoriously fun, interesting, cool and curious so I’m really looking forward to this workshop.
And now for something completely different: Flickr moved into “Gamma” yesterday, officially leaving “Beta”. Who says pertpetual Beta is a feature of Web/Library 2.0? My favorite change so far is that as you page through a persons photo stream, more photo thumbnails display on each page. For those interested in FLickr, stop HERE to see a very interesting survey of changes Flickr users would like to see once they decide to leave all the Greek alphabet behind and finally move into software numeral land. Sorry that was a horribly nerdy sentence. Please pardon my geek out.
