OF THIS AND THAT


Library Technicians, http://lit2542006.blogspot.com
From Mohamed Taher, a Canadian library tech, there’s some neat stuff here.

The Movie Timeline, http://www.themovietimeline.com/
“It’s like a timeline, but of movies.” It covers 65,000,000 BC—Jurassic Park to 2293Star Trek: Generations. There’s a bit too much of Alien vs. Predator, but otherwise it’s reasonably interesting. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Google Trends, http://www.google.com/trends
You can track how often people have searched for the terms you input. “Google Trends aims to provide insights into broad search patterns. As a Google Labs product, it is still in the early stages of development. Also, it is based upon just a portion of searches, and several approximations are used when computing your results. Please keep this in mind when using it.” Despite this disclaimer, it could be very useful.

hi
I just noticed that I am in the headlines at your blog.
Thanks for this generous status.

By the way I asked you about focus group, to be held at OLA. It relates to virtual reference using Instant Messaging / Chat tools
