twitter friends are really fun

February 20, 2008

yesterday i tweeted that i was not going to join any more associations unless they furthered my career, were fun, or were for a cause that i believed in.

in response wayne (one of my twitter friends – http://twitter.com//wmacphail) promptly invited me to join the Librarian Glee Club for the Homeless.

he even designed a tshirt for me.

new blog on open access geniosity

February 16, 2008

check out Open Students. i seriously love this mandate:

We’re students – the next generation of scholars.
We believe that science should be open, for everyone to learn.
We’re changing the way that research is disseminated.

and they invited me to guest blog! (i better figure out something to say… any ideas out there?)

omg i met Jessamyn

February 16, 2008

Jessamyn West was at McGill for two, count’em!, TWO days speaking to students and professionals at a workshop i had a hand in coordinating.

not only is she a rockin’ fun person who inspires spontaneous limbo competitions (think i’m kidding?) but her talk, especially to us library students, made us feel all warm n’fuzzy about our decision to become librarians/knowledge managers/archivists.

so if any of you out there in the blogosphere have a chance to see Jessamyn speak, hop on your pogo-stick and go go go!
