To all who follow me,
I wanted to announce today that my blogspot site will now redirect here, to my tumblog. I have worked with both sites now since I started with idea to have a blog at all. I have been dual posting. If anyone has ever tried that tactic, it’s difficult. Now with the inception of Google Buzz, there is just one more place that I will need to keep track of things. So I decided to take the plunge and take the extra work that is the blogspot site off my plate. I have been working on a few pieces for a dual post, but look no further than this Tumblog. Thank you for following and I hope you continue. Thank you.

Did the Internet community peak at bookmarks? Asked in a different and perhaps more complete way: just as technologies like RSS and email in their purest forms are hard to beat even as technology marches forward, what better technology exists to keep track of information on the ever-expanding Internet than bookmarks? Taken a step further, what better way to share the bookmarked information than a site of your own? As such, I‘ve been reading, which is why I write now.
Working in and having a passion for libraries, I am struck by the fact that the way bookmarks work in the physical world is not directly analogous to bookmarks in the digital world. Bookmarks in the digital world are instead like dog-eared pages or highlighted passages; if you think of the Internet as a single tome, that is. In any case, anything that moves you to deface a book should probably be shared or become immortalized in some other way than just a reference for a future version of yourself.
