An online journal dedicated to "creative thinking about learning and teaching" from GMU. It has potential, but not much substance right now.

Anyone else know other good resources on developing effective teaching skills?

One Big Pond

According to Phil Bradley's weblog, the UK Government has created an e-innovations wiki to encourage discussion on local government. Meanwhile, my government plays big brother.

More proof that the internet's not good or evil by itself; it's all about how you use it.

That Pesky Job Market

According to the Dept of Labor, we librarians now have to wait until at least 2014 to see job opportunities improve. Great.

OpinMind Poll

New web application OpinMind searches blogs for your keyword, then uses context clues to give it a positive or negative assignement.

The (mostly frivoulous) statistics are in:
1) 68% of bloggers have a positive view of the library;
2) But this falls short of Google's 73% approval rating.

Note: results are not edited for profanity.
