Daily Thoughts 1/9/2011
I finished reading Information Architecture for the World Wide Web this morning. I also read a bit more of I live in the future and this is how it works. There were a few ideas that caught my attention; 85% of twitter is links to news articles, and most retweets eventually reach 1000 people. I like this.
Library Renewal is an organization that supports getting more electronic content into public libraries. This is more than books; it includes all kind of content, books, video, images, and other content. They want to see a greater ability for public libraries to be able to handle this kind of material as well as different electronic devices. http://libraryrenewal.org/
Please join this movement. It is at least a symbolic attempt to modernize libraries.
I joined http://www.quora.com which is a question and answer network. It looks a little bit like Twitter.
I'll see if it has any use soon.
