Good Morning! For almost 2 weeks I have been busy- in DC for CIL 2005, downstate for Indiana Library Federation, teaching at IUSB and doing some online collaboration. Today, however, I’m hitting the road for Traverse City to see how things are going Up North. See you in a couple of days!
I am relaxing…watching movies..playing with the boys… we’ll see you in 2005!
Best to all for a safe and happy holiday!
I feel validated today:
I am finishing a huge project for school this week and next. It’s independent study with Dr. Maurice Wheeler at UNT. I’m designing a class for doc students examining how technology has impacted Public libraries. One of the themes is the “unintended consequences” of technology.
I am hurtling toward unplugging through Christmas though. The idea of a break from the keyboard is attractive right now…
Do not fret – I will be back…we have so much cool stuff to look at and talk about here at TTW as libraries continue to meet technologies in new and interesting ways.
I also need to write a bit about my amazing weekend in Denton for class!
This evening I finished an update to the whole TTW site I sent it up… a CSS error was quickly fixed by Aaron and TTW 2.0 is ready to go! Take a look..let me know if you find something crazy or wrong!

As I pressed play last night on the new Star Wars Episode 4 DVD I picked up at Target on the way to work, I said to Steve: “I wonder how many people are screening this movie tonight.”
I liked it. I could also tell Lucas had tweaked some more…it looked so GOOD..then I found this site:
Ok icontemplate, I’m in. A bit of verse that Stevie eventually turned into a song about the AIDS crisis:
And walking through the room together
In suspended animation
No one saw us go – No one said goodbye
And from my heart I leave behind
And that you find the answers to your questions
And that life will once more be a celebration
And that you will be touched by an angel
