Happy birthday to Dawnowar and to Darren! Send them accolades. And cake.

What do your bookshelves say about you? I had no idea this was such a concern. Our bookshelves say that we are interested in practically everything, as far as I can tell.

This week's story about librarians being cool orginates from Houston. (I like the t-shirt.)

Cassandra, this one is for you: here's a way to track all the exciting developments in the web 2.0 world.

I often rail about how one day the apocalypse will come and knowing 2.0 technology will be no help whatsoever. The Obsolete Skills Wiki, however, can teach you what you need to know before it's too late! And with 2.0 technology, no less!

Women's History Month is almost here, and the BBC has an interesting article about the career choices for women in ancient Egypt.

Tomorrow is Friday, which means links from others. See you then!

Re: Web 2.0, uh, I still don't see the clothes!(teehee)

Re: Woman of Ancient Egypt

So, the sex thing, the universe was a balance between the masculine and feminine. What changed that? Christianity?

Regarding bookshelves: I have to say that Seligman's statement may be the stupidest thing I've ever heard said on this topic. With the possible exception of Klein's, of course.

Here's all you need to know about bookshelves: When someone comes into your house and looks at your bookshelves and says, "Have you actually read all those books?", you show that loser to the door, post haste.
