Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 1/3/15 (3:22pm)

Not asked once -- not once: "Would you have my textbook up in the stacks?" Devastating.

Big Week Out: Four Days, Four Different Events

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 12/4/13 (10:42pm)
  • Event #1 (Wed., 12/4/2013): Tech Cocktail Chicago, Frank Gruber interviewing Jason Fried of 37signals.com. My favorite part: where Fried said that the best sites don't consist simply of some huge photo plus parallax. People want services, he said, and oftentimes to deliver those services the site needs to be a little messy. Totally agree. Anyway, as usual, a great representation of the entrepreneurial side of web and digital development in Chicago.
  • Event #2 (Thurs. AM, 12/5/2013): UIC Urban Forum. Toni Preckwinkle giving opening talk.
  • Event #3 (Thurs & Fri., 12/6/2013-12/7/2013): Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities & Computer Science, Thursday Afternoon presentations (there's way more tomorrow).
  • Event #4 (Sat. AM, 12/7/2013): DrupalCamp Chicago 2013, Opening Session.

On My Perch Over at Reference

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 8/10/13 (10:39am)

We've been moved up to the 2nd floor while they're remodeling the first floor. The seat is probably no higher than normal but for some reason -- maybe because we're bang up against the main entryway or because the desk is smaller and more like a music stand -- it seems like a perch to me. Just as well. We'll be back downstairs in a couple of weeks.
