Julie Leung Visits the Seattle Public Library

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

I just happened to Technorati this blog today and found Julie Leung’s post about a visit to the new Seattle Public Library. Julie and I have bumped into each other in the blogosphere before and we had a chance to meet and talk over dim sum a few months ago. One of my blog readers […]

Score! Spot 13 Is Mine!

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

I took over spot 13 on Harvard’s Blog Rankings today. I’ve been hoping to hit 13 for a while, watching my blog slowly creep up there over the last few months. I wonder how long it will be before Jim Moore will win it back. The difference between spots 14, 13, 12, and 11 isn’t […]

Journey of a Wannabe

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

Angelica Cortez, who currently works at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, started a blog the other day. I met her at a conference once. Welcome to the blogosphere, Angelica!

New Stuff on the Scratchpad

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

I added some new navigation links and a category to this blog today. If you scroll down far enough, you’ll notice a list of recent posts on the side navbar. It’s a Manila macro that does it. I noticed it on the Dowbrigade the other day and got inspired. Since it’s a macro, I don’t […]

SLABC Program on Blogging–Maybe

Wednesday, June 30th, 2004

I heard that some program planners in the Special Libraries Association Boston Chapter are considering blogging as a possible topic this year. One of the problems program planners have is that they don’t often have a good idea about what programs the membership wants because they don’t get enough feedback from members. If you have […]

Are any of you coming to Boston for the American Association of Law Libraries Annual Meeting from July 10-14, 2004?

Boston Globe Column about Indexing

Monday, June 28th, 2004

Peter Canellos, The Boston Globe’s Washington bureau chief, analyzes the inclusion of names in the index of Bill Clinton’s autobiography My Life in a column I hope is not meant to be serious. Apparently, the names of people just casually mentioned in the book are not included in the index, which is throwing off Washington […]

Fired Harvard Blogger Shares Her Tale

Monday, June 28th, 2004

Blogger and former Harvard employee Norah Burch shares her thoughts about losing her job over content on her blog in Sunday’s Boston Globe Magazine. (The article does not seem to be available online, sadly.) She says she used her blog as a place to vent about frustrating events and people during the day. The URL […]

Someone’s Mining My Tagline

Monday, June 28th, 2004

Several bloggers and feed readers have lamented in the past that my tagline doesn’t get sent out in the RSS feed. When I was playing around on the Web today, I found a site reproducing entries from my RSS Feeds category that also has my current tagline–at least it’s current as of Monday, June 28, […]

Presentation to Business Librarians about Blogging

Saturday, June 26th, 2004

I gave two presentations about blogging to the staff of Harvard Business School’s Baker Library yesterday. I think the presentations went well. The audience seemed engaged and lots of people had very good questions. Both presentations just skimmed the surface of the world of blogging. One man talked about the development of someone’s voice on […]
