  • Open Library lending digital books

    This just in. The Open Library, you know that awesome website with the terrific design and great dataviz options, is lending digital books to anyone whose library has a working relationship with OverDrive. Gary Price explains more with links for further reading. I am very curious to see if a library without all the print-book baggage [disclaimer: I love to read print books also] can really make this ebook thing make real sense to people without the majority of the battling-licenses overhead that I think makes OverDrive seem so wonky in our brick and mortar libraries. Go to the lending library and see how it works. [thanks peter]

    Hulu recommended this show to me a few weeks ago. If a dear friend hadn’t said he enjoyed it so much, I might have given up. I’m glad I didn’t. The flaws are entirely ignorable, and it’s a lot of fun.
    John Doe: John Doe is a mysterious man who rises from the water off an isolated island possessing knowledge of literally everything in the world, yet having no memory of who – or even what – he is.

    Funny Wedding Photos - You Never Suspect the Man in the Chicken Suit. Wait, You Should ALWAYS Suspect the Man in the Chicken Suit

    Submitted by: dunno source via Submit Page

    What is the man in the chicken suit truly capable of? Even I don’t know. Will he steal the couple’s getaway limo to go pick up chicks all night? (HEH) Will he start doing the worm in the middle of the reception dance party? Perhaps he’ll just Photobomb every single picture taken of the bride and groom? The sneaky bastard would do something like that.
