Librarians are prone to being generalists, and I often feel envious of people who have a clear focus. Working on sharpening mine a bit more. Related to MOOCs is [...]
Haven’t done a plain links post for ages. I’m trying to get away from lists, but perhaps a few annotated links can be a good way of tracking current interests. Or a nice Sunday displacement activity. Events…many are still completely unamplified or curated, but for this seminar on the power of social media to support [...]

Just a quick look at a couple of #digigov camps… #cllrcamp Councillor Camp, “a day for local councillors to share experience, learn about and discuss digital & social media” took place on 12 January. The event ‘home’ seems to be a Facebook page, goodness, with details and a report on FutureGov’s blog. There’s also a Councillor Campers [...]
