Co-founder of WordPress talks about project's past and future - 0 views

    We often use websites without realizing that they are viewed as projects to their founders and creators. This video gives some information about what going on behind the curtains of a blog-hosting website.
    Great -- thanks for re-posting, Talia. Once we start using the site I created in class the other day, you'll get familiar with WordPress.

HowStuffWorks Videos "What is the future of libraries?" - 2 views

    Video about one person's take on what libraries will be used for in the future. Very interesting opinion.
    Hmm, interesting. The service she describes where libraries sell books is fairly rare, still, although it's made possible by a thing called an Espresso Book Machine that prints copied of ebooks: I hate when I can't figure out the date of things. I even looked at the source code to try to find out when that video was recorded, but I couldn't. I did discover that the girl in the video (I love her sweater!) is one of the co-hosts of another How Stuff Works podcast called "Stuff You Missed in History Class" at -- that might be useful! Certainly relevant. :) Their latest episode is about an 18th-century "Vampire Panic" in New England. Sign me up.
    I listen to that podcast all the time!

The Ultimate Source for Research - 0 views

    The ultimate guide for students who don't want to carry around their text books but still enjoy marking them up. With over 75,000 textbooks, Questia is an explosive host of information for the weary researcher. I really enjoy its easy navigation, ability to add comments in books, and wide range of topics. For an annual price of $100, I cut down on my book expenses and killed some book clutter in my apartment.

How the Internet Has Changed the R.S.V.P. - 0 views

    An interesting article from the Fashion & Style section of the New York Times about how the internet has changed the concept and attitudes of R.S.V.P viewed by people. With the modern R.S.V.P, the ability for a host or event producer to painlessly publicize his or her event to many people has replaced the meaning of a social contract.
