Trying the embedding exercise - here goes

Digital Preservation YouTube


Sinead sent me a link to this video on this riveting topic. It even manages to incorporate 'metadata'! I'm all for using some humour or animation to drive home your message or make it more's certainly worth a try! Not bad really. More to come from this outfit....can't wait! What about digi-man's pants - very short and tight! See what you think...blame Sinead!

Mr Bean's visit to the Library


Someone of you might want to check out this humourous video. A little overlong - but you can never get too much Mr Bean!
BTW - loved the 'Evolution of Dance' video - really clever and funny.

I wonder does my last post count as recognition of having completed 'thing 13'?? By virtue of highlighting the negatives, I must have known the positives...?? I can't be penalised for not being peppy about every 'thing'! I should have known that it would be no. 13 that would push me over the edge!! I promise that I'll have recovered after the May bank holiday....perhaps!



Still behind - only on wikis. I've come to the conclusion that I wouldn't be a good candidate for creating a wiki. Basically, I don't have any friends and I'm a control freak - yes the latter has a bearing on the former! They keep talking about needing a 'community' and 'buy in' from others. Even if I could get past this obstacle - the disorganised nature of wikis would be a problem - please leave my messy office out of this! And the spam! The more content, the more's never-ending. It may be sold as easy to do - but there is a learning curve! Don't be fooled by the coolness of it all! Seriously folks, I don't have a big enough ego for all these 'look and listen to me' tools and I'm just not that 'caring and sharing' type!!!! Remember silence, keeping one's own counsel - seriously under-rated!!!Phew -I needed to get that off my chest!

The singing sensation 'Susan Boyle' seems to the big news here. Great expectations for her in the next round! She'll never top that first viewing. I hope she's got a good manager!



Delicious doesn't look that tasty at 6.45pm on a Friday afternoon! Still I'm not immune to its charms and can see the benefit of sharing bookmarks amongst interested parties.
