I’m going to start trying a new format for my blog.  I have found that with my schedule as it is (14 hours a day away from home on average) that it’s impossible to write up a number of serious, lengthy blog posts each day.  I just don’t have the time!  I’m experimenting with voice recognition software to see if I can “blog” in the car as I’m driving on my commute from Hades, but until then I’m left with little time to myself.

What I think I do well is pull out a few gems of wonderfulness after my daily ongoing scan through oodles of pages, links, Tweets, blog posts, site updates, advertisements, and newsletters.  So that’s what I’m going to focus on with this new format.  I’ll scan all my sources as usual, and put up lots of short little posts pointing to resources, articles, tech news, you name it. Some of the stuff you’ll see here will be duplicates from my Twitter account (TheLiB).  But there will be stuff on Twitter that’s not here, and stuff here that’s not on Twitter.  So if you want both, and like both, be mindful of that :)

I also plan on still writing a lengthy article from time to time when something inspires me.  I’ve got a few waiting in my head on topics like libraries & augmented reality, getting around library eBook DRM, the ethics of being a presenter/speaker, blah blah blah.

At any rate, let me know what you think of the new format and I promise if you tell me you hate it I won’t hate you :)  We’ll see how it goes, and who knows?  We might change again….and again….and again.

    Just followed you on Twitter so I can keep up. Thanks!

    I’ve been facing the same dilemma. Now that my kids are getting older they want more time and attention. What VR software are you using? -L

    We currrently have QuestionPoint and are paying extra for the Qwidget (little Meebo-like chat window). I am advocating for LibraryH3lp, or perhaps looking to some of the other vendors like Mosio or Altarama to see if they can build a stable all-in-one lightweight product that will handle web chat, IM, email, texting, and possibly other things like VOIP, social media messages/chat, or video chat. I really like Mosio’s products, especially the back-end. I’d be curious to see what develops over the next several months. So much is new in this area of “communication management” online.

    I like the new format! I saw quite a few useful sites that I bookmarked. Thanks for publishing this great blog.
