I recently had a friend tell me that I was good at naming things. But I’m tired of that. I want to be good at something else, or at least be presented with some options from which I can just choose and spend my energy elsewhere. “There’s an algorithm for that!” I wish I hadn’t [...]
Phew, now that we’ve gotten that title out of the way…

I was so psyched to see this article in the New York Times on internet usage and its effects on memory. I’ve been thinking about this idea for quite some time, but have continually forgotten to look up info on the topic. Hi ho.

I keep seeing a new 1-inside-a-circle notification for a message in my inbox. I’ve lately preferred that I’m not hearing from a person. I’ve experienced the feeling of dread at the site of a text or email from an actual person. It’s the dread of something bad to come. I’m not sure what’s going on [...]
Code4Lib is a “is a loosely-structured conference for library technologists to commune, gather/create/share ideas and software, be inspired, and forge collaborations.” I attended the conference this year and here is my travelogue…
