Email could never be invented today. All new successful comm platforms are about proprietary products that own the customer relationship.
To be fair email was an answer to a problem posed by the poor disconnected networks of the day. We have different systems today because the technology allows it. The rest is just greed. - Todd Hoff
But as long as you own the email addresses used by your customers, along with their entire address book, you own the relationships. - April Russo

Doctor Who's Jenna-Louise Coleman quits role as Time Lord's assistant and will leave at Christmas - Mirror Online
"Doctor Who’s companion Jenna-Louise Coleman is set to leave the hit BBC show. The actress, 28, is believed to be quitting her role as the Time Lord’s assistant in a sensational Christmas storyline. Her exit could bring an end to her 18 months as Clara Oswald, creating a vacancy for another sidekick to star alongside new Doctor Who, Peter Capaldi." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet
Whaaaa??? - Julian
While it's probable, The Mirror isn't the most trustworthy source (or so I've heard). I can see how it'd make sense story-wise, though. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Gosh, am not sure any of our papers are wholly trustworthy, and The Mirror is certainly towards the more sensationalist end of the spectrum. But having said that I ain't surprised. Not loving the idea of older Doc and young girl. But that could just be me... - Heleninstitches from Android
Helen, I had to smile about your comment since The Doctors have had centuries on their companions. ;-) The previews and hints about Series 8 lean toward the show becoming a bit more serious and even dark. While I'm completely fine with that, I'm ready for a new companion. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I'm ready also for better writing - maʀtha
Personally I don't think the series is going to survive beyond Capaldi. My guess is he will be the last regeneration for awhile. - Soup in a TARDIS
Finally got my brakes did the other day. Part was $11, brake fluid $7. Asked neighbor what he needed for his work. He said $15. I gave him a crazy look. He said, "too much?" and I laughed. Gave him a twenty.

I also felt Doug Kaye and Steve Gillmor deserved credit for pioneering the content side of podcasting. They were doing it before I was.

Re 10 years of podcasting. When you're trying to bootstrap something, no help. After it's gained traction, all kinds of people did it.

Climatologist Who Predicted California Drought 10 Years Ago Says It May Soon Be 'Even More Dire' | ThinkProgress
"Back in 2004, Sloan, professor of Earth sciences at UC Santa Cruz, and her graduate student Jacob Sewall published, “Disappearing Arctic sea ice reduces available water in the American west” (subs. req’d). They used powerful computers “to simulate the effects of reduced Arctic sea ice,” and “their most striking finding was a significant reduction in rain and snowfall in the American West.” “Where the sea ice is reduced, heat transfer from the ocean warms the atmosphere, resulting in a rising column of relatively warm air,” Sewall said. “The shift in storm tracks over North America was linked to the formation of these columns of warmer air over areas of reduced sea ice.” In January, Sewall wrote me that “both the pattern and even the magnitude of the anomaly looks very similar to what the models predicted in the 2005 study (see Fig. 3a [below]).”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Does anyone have any examples of libraries that prepare creative, effective, or otherwise remarkable annual reports (and make them available to the public)?
Was this a rhetorical question? <d&r> - Deborah Fitchett
Haha, sadly, no it was not. - Freeda B.
I don't think I've ever read a library's annual report - Christina Pikas
I have, a couple of them (local public libraries), but none that I'd call remarkable. "Serviceable and in reasonably clear English" is enough of a hurdle in most cases. - Walt Crawford
Ours are pretty fancypants: - Marie
Was it Aaron Schmidt (Walking Paper) who did something really fun, or is my memory failing? I'll check when I get to work. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
i think it was Topeka that had one a few years back that made everyone oooohaaaah - jambina
Our annual report will kick your annual reports' ass. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
Thanks, y'all. I also like this one, not fancy, but better functionality than usual: - Freeda B.

I know there's some overlap between these two rooms, so I thought I'd mention an ebook I bought last night: Good Housekeeping for the Chronically Fagged ( It's a really informal book, only about 40 pages, but I've found a number of things in there that have made me think. A few quotes:
"A routine is scheduled method for accomplishing tasks, in a particular order, at particular times. A routine, therefore, has objectives, priorities, a schedule, and means for seeing it through. A routine is not inflexible, but neither is it made to be broken or bent unnecessarily...For persons with compromised health, an orderly routine for sustaining a comfortable habitat and a clear conscience that finances are in order, is simply not optional. Disorder, whether it be clutter or unpaid bills, is stressful, and stress aggravates chronic illness." - Laura
"For those of us with chronic pain and fatigue, extended social time, or any time away from home, even to be with friends we dearly love, may increase our stress, pain, and fatigue...So it's important for us to enjoy being home. And if we enjoy being home, we should aspire to care for our home in a way that repays us with an environment that nurtures us and promotes our well-being." - Laura
"Things may become clutter if they are habitually out of context." - Laura
Thanks for posting. One of my issues is I don't have designated places for lots of stuff (gel I haven't used in 6 months but don't want to throw away, for example). - YvonneM

Check out the New York Public Library’s hilarious archive of librarians’ harsh children’s book reviews - Quartz
"You can hear their spirited voices in the catalog of about 6,400 index-sized cards, which offers everything from critical take-downs of Green Eggs and Ham (“typical of Suess’ late-period”) to racy reviews of Fast Times at Ridgemont High and scandalized reactions to Judy Blume’s Forever. Perhaps because the reviews were for internal purposes only, the librarians were unabashed in their criticism." - laura x from Bookmarklet

Clever idea: a chromecast can talk to multiple devices at once. My friend made a board-game-ish game where every player can look at their own screen but they can also use the shared screen. - Amit Patel
