My goodness, I’ve been trying to publish this post for AGES! Silly things keep getting in the way like, aftershocks and rehearsals for a play which opens tomorrow night! So, here are a bunch of links which I’ve been hoarding for your pleasure. Enjoy!

    Okay. First up, here’s a confession – it’s been two months since my last round-up. Be kind – there was an earthquake, and then I moved house, then I assistant directed a very successful children’s play, then I got a pet duckling, and then I got a shiny new cellphone to play with! Yeah, I’m not buying it either. Without any further ado, here’s what’s been keeping me entertained online…

    Books

    Libraries/Librarians

    Techy/RFID

    Just Plain Cool!

    And finally…
    …because that’s what it’s all about.

    I was going to get super-up-to-date online while convalescing at the farm after my wisdom teeth removal, but of course, that didn’t happen. Never mind, here’s what’s been keeping me entertained while I’ve been healing.

    Books

    Internetty/Techy

    Resources/Databases

    • BBC – Dimensions – What a brilliant resource! Great for students. I like putting the Colossus at Rhodes in Cathedral Square. Via RS.
    • LRIS Portal – Environment and Land Data from Landcare Research. For sciencey folk needing NZ info. Via RS.

    Fun or Funny

    I’ve tried to remember where I sourced this info for you (in the little via:xx) but I didn’t record my path every time. Sometimes it was also straight from my RSS feed, so there was no need. I’ll try to get more diligent with my resources!

    See you tomorrow!
