This blog started for the project I am a Librarian! It gave detail the project progress. It will now focus on discussions of the image of the librarian and my interactions with librarians and library staffers as well as cool information that I think could be useful to others.

On the Train...

Today when I was on the train I said hello to the guy that I sat next to and complimented his tie. It was a bowtie and very cool. I asked him what he did for a living and he told me that he was an investment banker. He then, in turn, asked what I did I told him I am a Librarian. He said, "You are too young and friendly to be a librarian." Here I go again trying to educate people and help get rid of those stereotypes.

Yahoo & Windows Live Messenger to Chat

Yahoo and Windows are beta testing software that will combine their instant messaging services.

I honestly don't know how it will change what people have already, especially since there are services that already allow you to be on multiple services at one time seeminglessly, such as Trillian. It may be more beneficial for people who are new to chat and instant messaging. It will be interesting to see the developments though.
