Because I'm nosey!

I finally weakened and decide to see what was going on with Twitter.
I joined in January 2007, but never used it, as I didn't know anyone else who did, or ever would.
But now, I do know people who use it...perhaps it's finally reached critical mass for me? There's no guarantee I'll actually make much use of it, but it seems more interesting when there's people you're interested in posting on it. And it's letting me rant about my crappy day while my boss isn't there to hear it...

I'm a Luddite, but I'm also always willing to change my mind if I can be persuaded of the usefullness of things!

I was going to say it's like the opposite to my Facebook account, in that it's workmates only, whereas Facebook is friends only, then realised I've got a bit of crossover of both on Facebook.

Note to self - the next social network you join needs to have a way of separating out groups and allowing them only a certain amount of access to you. "Work" group sees only the updates / info you tag as "professional", friends get to see everything...

Facebook does have limited group controls now - available under the privacy option - although they tend to be applied to types of information rather than instances of information - more rules than tags.

Weirdly, the site I know offers the most impressive and customisable group controls is LiveJournal, although its reputation as a teenage angst fest can mean it doesn't sit very well in a work context.

So weird that you posted about Twitter because I've had an account since last year too and decided just this week to figure out what the heck it's all about! Apparently it can be used to promote social justice...although in my case it'll probably be used as another excuse to procrastinate...

Library words

Putting words about libraries and books onto posters is very popular, so there's all sorts of options out there. These items are here because they have a quote or slogan about libraries or books printed on them. There's one quote in particular that seems to be a favourite of poster makers: see if you can spot which one it is.... Library bird (ok, it's a magnet, but hey...)

Mini Christmas gifts

Miniature things are one of my favourites, and miniature books are no exception. These tiny books are available either as volumes or sets of volumes on their own, or as parts of dolls house or in specialised miniature library settings. And some of the miniature libraries are just insanely good! I've not included here the many options of wearable miniature books - earrings, necklaces, bracelets, badges... A book with its own drawer for safekeeping Mini clay books Decorative mini books Ghosts in the library books Not exactly miniature, but very small "Little Leather Library" collection How about a Medieval illuminated book, in miniature? Or one with a secret compartment? There are even illustrated erotic mini books! You can theme by colour!
