This is probably a leftover April Fool (although it'd be great if it wasn't), but the Archivist character in Diablo is wonderful. He kills with books!

The National Museum of Health & Medicine already has a weblog with one of the best titles anywhere (The Repository of Bottled Monsters); now they have an account on Flickr as well. (Perhaps not surprisingly, some of the images are graphic and/or potentially disturbing, so you may want to wait until you're not eating lunch or something.)

Did you know YouTube has a whole channel for academia? Well, now you do.

After Clay Shirky's essay on the future of journalism, a lot of people had a lot to say. One recent roundup of reactions comes from NYU's journalism department.

One of my big concerns about the changing media world is what happens to the photographs and archives from the papers. In one case, at least, there's a happy story: Wright State University is preserving the archives of the Dayton Daily News.

Heidegger vs. a Kindle: who would win? Well, this essay doesn't really put them in a fighting arena together, but it's an interesting discussion nonetheless.

And finally, here's your depressing graphic of the day: the U.S. economy state by state, courtesy of CNN.

Tomorrow: links from others, and there will be some very cool ones, so come back!

Anonymous Anonymous: Call me a troglodyte if you must, but...

I love paper books! I love the sensuousness of the pages, the sound and smell.

Listening to books is also dreamy. A kindle, however, reminds me too much of work.

Trog the Internot Librarian (or Organic Librarian)
