Tennessee Library Association Annual Conference "Tell Your Story" ... good times :) - Aaron the Librarian
Rebecca Hedreen
We did a Choose Privacy study break last night, in honor of ALA's Choose Privacy campaign and our own finals. We set up food and computers set to Watch Dogs: Digital Shadow game app--it's a trailer/teaser for a game, but gives a fun and illuminating view of how much an app can see in your Facebook Account.
And then we also provided instructions for REMOVING apps from your FB account! - Rebecca Hedreen
About 50 people showed up! I don't think we've ever gotten that many for anything! - Rebecca Hedreen

What are your best recipes for boneless, skinless chicken breasts (that aren't the slow cooker chicken taco bowl)?
and i frequently just poach it in some water with veg & aromatics, and then put it on all kinds of things, throw it in to pasta, etc. - jambina
Never buy bones less skinless chicken breasts (I am so glad Amy is actually helpful). - laura x from iPhone
Yeah, I think I'm not good at improvising with it, since I never cooked it before a year ago. It ends up bad. But now I have a million of them from Costco. - Meg VMeg
I use them all the time... why is my mind completely blank? sheesh. - holly #ravingfangirl
Toss chicken with sliced bell peppers & onions, Thai sweet chili sauce & a lil soy sauce, bake it. Or instead of sweet chili sauce, use canned coconut milk & lots of garlic. I'll pretty much bake chicken pieces in any sauce or soup or seasoning I can come up with, because it's super easy. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Slice in half the flat way, cutting 3/4 of the way through (for stuffing purposes). Mix ricotta, egg, cooked spinach, shredded italian cheese of your choice, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stuff into chicken breasts. Bake. Top with Alfredo sauce or pesto or whatever you find satisfying. - Jenica
*takes notes* - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Make chicken schnitzel: - Jenica
I use the green curry recipe on the jar. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
C uses them in stir-frys. We also grill them sometimes because they're quick: marinate in olive oil + vinegar + Penzey's blend of choice and then grill over indirect heat. - Catherine Pellegrino
slice into strips, dip in melted butter, dip in coconut or almond flour, line up in pan, pour more melted butter on, bake. I like coconut flour when battering for hint of sweetness. - Hedgehog from Android
I've cubed up the chicken and added it to this vegan curry recipe. Yum! - John Dupuis
Thank you all! - Meg VMeg

"Jason Fitger is a beleaguered professor of creative writing and literature at Payne University, a small and not very distinguished liberal arts college in the midwest. His department is facing draconian cuts and squalid quarters, while one floor above them the Economics Department is getting lavishly remodeled offices." - laura x from Bookmarklet
"In short, his life is a tale of woe, and the vehicle this droll and inventive novel uses to tell that tale is a series of hilarious letters of recommendation that Fitger is endlessly called upon by his students and colleagues to produce, each one of which is a small masterpiece of high dudgeon, low spirits, and passive-aggressive strategies." - laura x
I am SO looking forward to this. I read her first novel (which is differently but equally wonderful) while I was on maternity leave. - laura x
She was one of Sarah's profs at UMN - maʀtha
keep this book AWAY from me... I will learn MUCH TOO MUCH from it. *g* - RepoRat
I also just requested a digital ARC of a new translation of the Bacchae with the note, "I've read it Greek, yo." - laura x
I can't decide if this looks wonderful or if I'll be crying because it's so familiar... - Hedgehog
ooo. - Marianne
You had me at beleaguered! - reminds me of Straight Man, which I try to re-read every time I take academia a little too seriously. - Jen
Jen, I also recommend Nabokov's Pnin for that purpose. - DJF from Android
Straight Man is one of my all-time favorite books. - laura x from iPhone
I finally started this last night and I am just enjoying the hell out of it. - laura x
I just reread Straight Man recently and am desperate need of another such tale. Thank you! - Galadriel C. from Android

I teach a class on facebook for beginners but it should be called "Can you find the tiny triangles that are hiding all your settings?"
I asked a boy out and he said yes.
Well, grown man, anyway. - Derrick

ha, no...this is someone I've been crushing on shortly after I moved to DC. I get so goofy and silly and like a 14 y/o when it comes to even attempt dating. He's kind of goofy too, so we'll see how it goes. - Derrick
Text me so I can see if I know him. ;) small gay world. Also hang out this weekend? - Jason from iPhone

One of our librarians brought in a giant tub of stuffed animals for end-of-the-block study relief with a big "Need a Study Buddy?" sign. And her favorite monkey puppet, which has been slung around both her and the ref desk monitor (alternating). Actual squeals of heartfelt delight have been heard. Some of them from hockey players.
There are stuffed animals dispersed throughout the building. I love this place. - Marianne
That's brilliant. We've been having fun with a bunch of donated stuffed animals (for teen craft this summer). Head of Circ arrived yesterday to find a Teddy Bears' Picnic Staff Meeting going on in her office. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn

Shelf Check: "Why do you love your library?" is NOT Community Engagement: Better Questions to Ask During National Library Week
"A few weeks ago, I blogged and tweeted about a participatory display--"Why Did You Come to the Library Today?"--that yielded a great response at my library. What I failed to include in the post was WHY I think it was successful, and as National Library Week 2014 approaches and I begin to see libraries gearing up for "Why do you love your library?" campaigns, it seems like a good time to follow up." - Betsy
"Why do you love the library?", "Tell us why you love your library!", and "Why are you proud of your library?", wherever I've seen them, don't often generate diverse responses or engage diverse patrons. They're mainly answered by the same sorts of loyal library fans that like your library's every Facebook post, and like each other, too." […] - Betsy
"They're also abstract, compared to the concreteness of "Why did you come to the library today?" The latter can be answered easily even by folks who don't necessarily love the library but came here anyway because they needed our services (which might be, sorry folks, quite a few public library patrons)." […] - Betsy
"So, a suggestion: when asking engagement questions during National Library Week (or any time), make the focus concrete, not abstract, and focus on the patrons, not the library—because that’s where the true stories lie. "Why did you come to the library today?" is an in-building question for physical displays. “What have you learned at your library?” works both in-building and online.... more... - Betsy
We've done "Snapshot Day" a couple of times and the comment form provided by our state library association has both "why did you come to the library today?" as a checklist and "why is the library important to you?" - Rebecca Hedreen
Hrm, I see a lot of my brother and my father in this pic of me. That's...interesting. - Derrick

Had a dream last night that the library went live with an alternative search interface I had made that was Cabbage Patch Kid themed.
The best part about beer is I have some and can drink it and it's delicious.
Tweet: "Ne zaboravite da nas posetite u cetvrtak." Me: [clicks view translation] Bing-translated tweet: Not zaboravite us posetite u cetvrtak. Me: THANKS, BING! [goes to Google Translate] Google-translated tweet: Do not forget to visit us on Thursday.
The issue? Bing thinks this is Slovenian. It's actually Serbian written in the Latin alphabet instead of Cyrillic (cos Serbians are digraphic), which Google thinks is Croatian. Without getting into a debate over linguistics, Google is closer to being right than Bing is. - Zamms
Looking at the list of languages available at Bing ( Serbian and Croatian are not supported but Slovenian is. - Zamms

Will demo the Tor browser & DuckDuckGo search engine to my students tomorrow after showing them the profiles Google has on them.
okay, wait, how do I know what profile Google has on me? - maʀtha
Martha, if you are logged into your Google account and then you go to this page, you should be able to see a profile. - Stephen Francoeur
hah! that just got blocked by my new Ghostery :) clicking through - maʀtha
ah, okay. I opted out of interest based ads long ago. what else do I need to change here? - maʀtha
okay, the list of interests based on my search history is creepy. it won't let me edit them, though - maʀtha
i tried to opt out of interest-based ads on Google and the operation fails every time. - Big Joe Silence
Thanks for posting this in FB, Stephen - maʀtha
It has that profile on me for this tablet even though I'm not logged in. - Joe
Atleast they think I am younger than I am by two radio buttons. - Joe
I have Facebook & my gmail open in one browser … and I do 90% of my searching in another browser. that *helps* Google collect less data for me. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Oh, this is fascinating. Age based on profile, 45-54. Age based on the websites I've visited, 18-24. It also thinks I'm male. EDIT: once I opted out of ads in both columns, all that info went away. - Betsy
They've figured out I'm female! (Of course, I am logged in.) - Rebecca Hedreen
And if you aren't logged in it works from cookies, but I think then the default is male. - Rebecca Hedreen
Yeah, it won't let me opt out of interest-based ads on Google, nor will it let me delete interests. - Kirsten
btw, this dovetails nicely with RepoRat's patron privacy presentation at LibTech today - maʀtha
and because of this thread, last night I installed many of the extensions RR is recommending now #dejavu - maʀtha
