Mainly unprofessional

So, I'm following some of the "New Professionals Conference 2010" online and one of the tools referred to was Personas, to see what your online presence is like. Or, how references by to and about you online appear visually.

I used my normal online username (it's more distinctive than my "proper" name), and was pretty amused by the results.

It seems that the thing that I'm least of all, is "professional", closely followed by "committees". Whoops!
Mainly, I'm either aggressive, or I provoke aggression, and sports and fashion feature highly. Hmmmm, I'm thinking that there's maybe something REALLY ODD about this.

Wanna fight about it? Huh? DO YA?!?!

;)

Edited to add: OK, so it does a different thing every time then?!? This is what I got when I redid it again, for the same single word username (so it's not getting confused by two words, misspellings etc). Perhaps this is the truer one? More online, and social, MUCH less aggression...but perhaps that's because it's been joined by "military". Whaaa?

Oh hi! I was wondering what the latest fashion to wear whilst playing rugby was? You're pretty much the first person I thought to ask...

What a strange little tool! The problem that I had with it is that there are several 'Phil Bradley's out there, and it didn't appear to allow me to say 'Oi! That one! That's me..' so I ended up with a huge bunch of sports stuff and politics as well. Fun though.

@John Tutu's are SO in this season!
@Phil I found the same with my real name, so looked at my username, as I think I'm pretty much the only one on the Magical Interweb with that. Which is why this result is so utterly odd!

I like this tool - I am illegal and accidental in parts, though...

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!
