Twitter in proper English

Do you tweet, or do you twitter?  The new edition of the AP Stylebook may help. Its says the "...verb forms are to Twitter or to Tweet." So either way is okay. Phew! Other new entries: the Middle Eastern eggplant dish baba ghanoush and texting as a verb.

Appropriately, you can follow the AP Stylebook on Twitter.


In memory of Joe Barker

Joe BarkerIt is with great sadness that we pass on the news that veteran Infopeople instructor Joe Barker passed away very suddenly and unexpectedly last night. At this time, we have no details in regard to cause, arrangements for memorial service, etc. As soon as we know any more, we will post another message.


ScreenCasting is a Cool Tool

I frequently find out about new and exciting training tools both from Infopeople and the Continuing Library Education Network & Exchange Round Table (CLENE) of the American Library Association. In June 2007, I read a wonderful blog entry, A Quick Intro to ScreenCasting by Steve Garwood in CE Buzz, CLENE's blog. Steve describes how he used Camtasia software to record a PowerPoint presentation he did on ScreenCasting as he spoke.

A Roaring Collaboration

A Roraring CollaborationThe California Library Association held its annual conference this past weekend in Sacramento. Infopeople, along with the California State Library's other LSTA-funded state projects were there, and we all shared a joint booth area that we called, "A Roaring Collaboration." It was a blast!
