Computers in Libraries, Day 1

March 30th, 2009 · No Comments

I’m killing a little time before the opening keynote address at Computers in Libraries.  Got settled in yesterday.  I did catch the Lincoln exhibit at the Smithsonian but didn’t do much else.  The long day of travel wore me out more than I had realized until I actually contemplated more walking.  So I settled for […]

The Crane Wife is the latest album from The Decemberists, who have become one of my favorite bands in the last couple of years. It’s hard to describe The Decemberists. More of a pop band than a bunch of rockers, they blend folk and pop and add a strong dose of literary style. Colin Meloy, […]
