You know why there are logic problems on standardized tests? So you can learn how to make vacation schedules at work, that's why.

Ahem. Anyway, on to the links!

Michael Gorman, former ALA president and "Blog People" hater, is at it again. (The link is to a well-thought-out response to his articles, not to the articles themselves.) He raises some good points, but not in a very good fashion, I think.

Meanwhile, libraries (and librarians) are learning how to work with Google, not against it. Good plan!

Google Reader is now available in "offline" format, which is brilliant and reminds me of the days of downloading newsreader articles to read offline back in the days of usenet.

Some fun links: Kakophone tells you what was happening on a certain day on the earth, in the sky, and on Mars. I just found out I was born during a new moon. Cool!

When the superheroes need to get together and save the world from some as-yet unknown menace, they won't have to worry about how to find each other - they're being cataloged. (I think it would be great to be a researcher for the Justice League. Or even the Legion of Doom.)

Tomorrow: links from others! Also, more items for trade will be up at Bartertown, most likely.
