Telephone tip

GOOG411 is great for saving money when you need phone numbers and/or addresses. You just call 1-800-GOOG-411 (free) instead of 411 (usually $1.50 and up per call). Especially useful for cellphone users. I programed the number in my phone and named it "info." Check out their video on it -- funny. Another free service from Google.

It Made Me Laugh

For those of you who don't know, I live in Berkeley and used to work at the BPL until I left to go with Infopeople. I love my library and am so proud of them for this foray into our multimedia and interactive world. It's imbedded in the BPL website but I think you should go directly to Berkeley Public Library, An Intimate Portrait on YouTube so you can see the comments folks have left. It's a simple little video giving some useful information about the library... but... it's funny!!!


Who to vote for?

A couple of my favorite places for checking out the candidates' views on looming issues are Glassbooth: Election 2008 and YouTube's You Choose '08. Take Glassbooth's quiz to get a sense of where your views on the issues match with the candidates' (you might be surprised), and take a look at their new section with videos of the candidates speaking on the issues.


How do you see the twirling figure?

I mostly see it as clockwise but can reverse it if I think about. I think this 'indicates' I'm right-brain dominant. I've tried it on a couple of friends and one, who is more often left-brained in terms of the functions listed in the article, saw the figure moving counter-clockwise. Take the Right Brain vs Left Brain test and be sure to scroll down and read the comments section.
