Computers in 1945

Reading the article “As We May Think” by Vannevar Bush. Pub in the Atlantic magazine in July 1945! Found out that this article is used in library school too.

Here’s a YouTube video of Bush’s Memex, enjoy –

Readers Advisory on the web

The biggest challenge I have at work is remembering all the different books that I read (or read about)  when a customer asks me to recommend a title to them – there are so many to choose from. Instead of trying to remember everything or writing random titles down on scraps of paper I can use a blog to record & save my personal book reviews. I think this is a great way to integrate technology and best work practices! 

Here are just two bloggers offering reviews of newly published material in very different styles. When I’m done with this class I think I’ll have to keep my blog rolling with book reviews : )

Welcome to my world!

     I’m an avid reader with a strong belief in the restorative properties of retail shopping therapy. I love Entertainment Weekly,the Huffington Post, Sirus XM and lots & lots of chocolate. Music and medication keep me sane when the children of the corn come and greet me at the door, which believe it or not, is often. My husband loves to cook, talk about collecting guns and read Sci-Fi. My kids love to leave every light on, play strange games on the computer against each other and sing out loud in the shower (I have audio to prove it). My life is rich and full of love, laughter and laundry.  

Oh, and if I had a million dollars, I’d be rich.
