5 Myths About the 'Information Age' →
bookron: bibliofeminista: Confusion about the nature of the so-called information age has led to a state of collective false consciousness. It’s no one’s fault but everyone’s problem, because in trying to get our bearings in cyberspace, we often get things wrong, and the misconceptions spread so rapidly that they go unchallenged. Taken together, they constitute a font of proverbial...

Remoting it ... 7 #eqnz
I started the week in CHCH at Boffa Miskell’s office in Sir Gil Simmons, and am now working at The Distiller, an awesome space at the Centre for Innovation in Dunedin, on the University of Otago campus. This morning involved a bit of book buying and Intranet updating. I’m now going to crank through some work in preparation for a week sorting the library in our Tauranga office; the...

And maybe it’s time to tell my story, which I’ve found hard to write down until now. In those immediate days after the quake my brain was physically unable to comprehend anything further ahead than ‘tomorrow’. My perception distilled to a cluster of synapses firing in my reptilian brain. Once we were in Dunedin, that capability stretched out to a couple of days. Each day...

So now the one tool I rely on to do my job, DB Textworks, has packed up and I’m at home. Today sucks. I’m sad about losing my library. It’s cold and wet. My house stinks of silt and I want to cry when I look out the window at my lawn. And the little black stray cat I’m trying to make friends with keeps running away from me. Enough moaning. So I’ve been updating the...

Well there have been developments. Two of my colleagues were permitted an hour to collect some important items from the office. While they were there they snapped off a few pictures. Here’s one of my library. This is the last time I’ll see it. We’ve been told no one will be allowed back into the building; the building has no future. Remoting it index

My lovely daughter, a preschooler, gets hold of her Dad’s iPhone on Saturday and Sunday mornings in bed with us while her Dad and I slowly wake up. She’s playing some great games. I’m astounded at her agility and ability to connect so easily with this interface. Angry Birds and Cut the Rope are two games she’s quite proficient with.

How do you value a library collection? I’m probably going to have to do this soon. I’d really like some advice about this if anyone has been through a disaster recently and can shed some light for me. While there has been no official word on our building, there is a possibility at sometime soon, at short notice, four of my colleagues may get a limited amount of access to our building....
