Facebook Chat

Facebook now has chat (if you hadn’t heard already). I don’t use it much because it means going to Facebook and keeping it open. Up til now I had only heard about one app that let you chat on Facebook – and that’s Digsby – but it doesn’t have an app for Mac yet. So I thought I’d look around and see what I could find. It turns out that  [ Read More ]

IM = Productivity

Some employers think that IM can lead to a lack in productivity – but I’m here to tell you that that is not true! Right now I’m working virtually, so IM is necessary, but when I worked in the library I used IM to eliminate some of the silly interruptions that came from people coming to my desk and calling me by using IM. Now a study at the Ohio  [ Read More ]

IM, Social Networks & Email in one?

So, now that I’ve gotten used to my Mac and love the tools I’m using I find Digsby. One combined buddy list for all your AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and Facebook Chat Accounts. Manage your Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL/AIM Mail, IMAP, and POP accounts right from digsby. Stay up to date with everything happening on your Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace account (other network support coming soon).  [ Read More ]

Tweet Cloud

Since taking the job with LibLime I’ve been using Twitter a lot more – it’s just another buddy on my already open IM client. Today, I thought I’d play with Tweet Clouds. Check out the cloud of terms I use in my tweets. Technorati Tags: twitter

IM is so yesterday!

I was talking to my sister the other day and I asked her if she was on IM during the day. She replied with “IM is so yesterday!” I was a bit taken aback and thought – how can that be? I asked her “Okay, what is today then?” She answered “I don’t know – text messaging?” I use it all day every day to keep in touch with my  [ Read More ]

Giving Twitter another shot

I know I’ve said in the past that I’m no fan of Twitter – but I’m giving it another go. I’m trying to use it via IM now. So far this is going pretty well. With my new job I have to be online all day – and on IM & Skype & IRC, so using Twitter via IM just fits right into my regular daily workflow. I’m not sure  [ Read More ]

IM Translation Service

SpeakLike seems like it would be a useful tool for libraries providing IM chat services. SpeakLike works by using a combination of machine and human translation. As you send a message, a machine will automatically translate it to another language, while a human translator looks things over to make sure the translation is accurate. Found via DownloadSquad.

First Skype Call

Today I had my first Skype call/interview. It was an interesting experience. It was for a podcast that will appear on Talking with Talis once I’ve started my new job. One big tip – find a place without distractions or dogs!! My house has an open floor plan and it’s freezing out today so my pups were indoors and decided to play with each other while I was on the  [ Read More ]

It’s all about customer service

What an amazing idea! David Lee King posts about an addition to his library catalog. When patrons can’t find what they’re searching for they’re prompted with a meebo chat box to ask a librarian for help! Check out the picture on Flickr.
