The economy is collapsing, which means libraries are suddenly cool again. Sort of. (It cracks me up to see everyone "discovering" libraries and thrift stores. )|
Obama's presidential portrait is the first one taken by a digital camera. Woohoo! The 21st century is finally getting here after all! And speaking of Obama, you can create your own HOPE (or whatever you'd like to say) poster of your own at Paste Magazine. I was going to create one and post it here, but my Flash player settings have gone all wonky. At any rate, go and make your own! It's fun!
Everybody is on Twitter these days. Even LeVar Burton! Lots of librarians are also on, like Tara of Research Buzz. From there, I found that the Whole Earth Catalog has gone online, with all the articles available as far as I can tell. Sweet.
The U.S. Postal Service has announced its lineup for new stamps in 2009. The Edgar Allan Poe stamps go on sale tomorrow!
And finally, in what is probably the last post for this sort of thing, I give you 2008's most "eventful" cities. While my city is not eventful overall, it made the top 10 list for pet owners and "night crawlers." (Ha! Dawnowar may have something to say about that last one.)
Tomorrow: links from others!
