Featured Presentation

I just got an email from SlideShare telling me that my presentation from yesterday is being featured!! The talk was presented at the InfoLink Tech is It Day at Rutgers University yesterday. The group I had was awesome because we got to spend a few minutes at the end all talking together about what we thought the next edition of the web would look like. In short – we think  [ Read More ]

Publish your blog on the Kindle

I found this on TechCrunch yesterday: One of the neat little sub-features of Amazon’s Kindle is being able to subscribe to blogs on it. You have to pay for the privilege, but for heavy Kindle users, it makes sense as you can get the content delivered to you wirelessly for your favorite blogs. You know, like TechCrunch. But the biggest limiting factor of this so far is that only the  [ Read More ]

The future of the web

Today I gave a talk at the InfoLink Tech is IT day in New Brunswick, NJ. I was supposed to summarize what we saw with the Web 2.0 movement and where we were headed. I started by saying that I could only guess and point the attendees to some interesting ideas of what the future holds. Now I’m home and catching up on blog reading and I see this: Understanding  [ Read More ]

Espresso Book Machine

A lot of librarians have been posting a link to this article on the Espresso Book Machine launch in London. It’s not elegant and it’s not sexy – it looks like a large photocopier – but the Espresso Book Machine is being billed as the biggest change for the literary world since Gutenberg invented the printing press more than 500 years ago and made the mass production of books possible.  [ Read More ]

Saving your digital life

Jason Griffey had a great post last month that I read (but didn’t have time to share with you all) about saving your digital life online. Like most of us, my entire life is on this one machine and should anything happen to it I’d be crippled. When Circuit City was going out of business I bought an external hard drive so that I can automatically back up periodically. Another  [ Read More ]

The second panel of the day was titled Engaging the Global Digital Native: Transforming Technologies. Daniel Albohn of Sony was up first and titled his talk Trends and Developments in e-Reading and Digital Content : The advent of electronic paper displays. He started by talking to us about the technologies behind e-book readers (Sony Reader and the Amazon Kindle). Their first device was launched in 2004 in Japan, but the  [ Read More ]

We’re in danger of losing our memories

My title is taken from the title of this post over at the Guardian. As most of you know my new obsession has been creating my family tree. I keep a social tree on so that the whole family can work together and a research tree on so I can find records and more generations. I have also sent out pleas to my family to send me their  [ Read More ]

Crop and Straighten in Photoshop

Okay, I give up – maybe someone out there can help me. I’m using Mac OSX and Photoshop CS2. One of the features I love with Photoshop is the ‘Crop and Straighten’ automation. This tool is supposed to grab each individual picture on one image file, crop it out and then straighten it. From there I should be able to save or edit each individual image. I used it all  [ Read More ]
