the beginning of something new

I was doing a bit of reading in preparation for my upcoming class "Information in a Social Context" and this is one of the things we had assigned. So great! Go read it! I'm actually getting excited for this class. So far all the readings have had to do with ethics. This class might actually be intellectually stimulating!? *shock* Here's hoping...

Why to be a Librarian

One of our local school's 8th grade came to the library this morning to do research on careers. While looking up info for a student on becoming a public librarian in our Internet Careers Database (love it btw) I came across this list of "pluses":

  • Constantly learning
  • Access to the latest technology
  • Freedom
  • You're paid to read
  • Bright, attractive places to work
  • Satisfaction of helping people
  • Important public service
Hard to pick which is my fav - probably #4, though they're almost all fantastic LIES! lol. I just have to ask...where do they get their info from?? Don't get me wrong, I love libraries and working in them, but really people? Really?

So, I don't have time for a full blog post today, maybe tomorrow, but I'm totally excited about ARGs (Alternate Reality Games). I've been reading and following links all day and I'm pretty pumped. No idea what an ARG is? Here are two articles I found helpful and exciting:
