Daily Thoughts 07/19/2012
I finished reading The Complete Idiots Guide to Creating A Social Network. It makes me want to learn more about Buddypress which is an extension of Wordpress. I requested Buddypress for Dummies through interlibrary loan.
This morning, I checked the displays and gift books. I also updated the Twitter and Facebook pages for the library.
Wikipedia has recently started an initiative to work with libraries. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Loves_Libraries
I spent a little time on Earlyword http://www.earlyword.com/ today looking at the news. A lot of the news is coming out of the San Diego Comic Con. Hopefully, I will get to go to New York Comic Con. They are starting professional registrations for New York Comic Con on July 23, 2012. There is a list for BEA 12 Librarians Picks on Earlyword http://www.earlyword.com/librarians-shout-n-share-bea-12/
What to Make of Finnegans Wake
Michael Chabon is one of my favorite authors. I especially liked The Yiddish Policemen's Union. I am looking forward to his next book, Telegraph Avenue.
