In case you're stuck in an airport terminal for hours on end, with no liquid in sight, here are some informational-type link thingys to take your mind off the current situation. (Transatlantic flights with no carry-on possessions sound hellish.)

RIP, Frederick Kilgour, also known as the founder of OCLC. In related news, WorldCat has been revitalized and made more web-friendly!

The recent leaking of searcher information from AOL is causing all sorts of havoc and questions about privacy and security. AOL pulled the information pretty quickly, but a lot of other websites got access to it and have posted it. Don't Delete has a "random user" option that lets you surf around and see what people searched for, which can be really entertaining. I looked at one that had some relatively R-rated searches and then suddenly listed "grandma needs a pet." Heh.

In more local goof news, one of our libraries is giving out lead-filled toys. Oops!

I once worked at the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives as a graduate assistant, and I can vouch for the fact that there are some seriously weird government publication titles out there. Now there's a Flickr pool of strange titles. (I will dig out my old brochures on how to tell if your bread is safe and post them to the group, hopefully.)

Can't get to a museum right now? How about the Museum of Online Museums? Hours of fun!

Tomorrow: links from others. Stay tuned.
