Ask:

  1. Is anyone bursting at the seams to share a fabulous tool?

  2. Does anyone have a particular, urgent need for a tool that does something particular?
  3. Is there a particular site or kind of site you’d like me to discuss or explain?

Social news sites and their magic

Why should librarians care?

Digg: digg.com
Reddit: reddit.com
Babbledog: babbledog.com

From the floor:

  • Fraps — a way to capture video on Windows computers

  • SnapzPro — record what is on a Mac’s screen as a QuickTime movie or image
  • Yahoo! Babelfish — an online translation tool
  • LibraryThing — a way to organize materials like books and videos and share information about what you own with other people while learning what they have in their collections

Thank you!
