Music Monday – “I’m on my way to nowhere/I been runnin’ from my past/Runnin’ from the things I used to be”

Sometimes it pays to be a blogger. Last week’s “Music Monday” post about Colter Wall was seen by a friend who happened to have an extra ticket to see Wall’s album release show at The Exchange last night.  So because of that blog post, I ended up getting invited along to see the show. It was […]

.@officialRPL Information Session on Cuts to Sask Public Libraries #skpoli #SaveSKLibraries

(As a general rule, I don’t do disclaimers on my blog.  But given the fine line that exists between my place of employment and my interest in this issue as a taxpaying citizen – not to mention the fact that I’m someone who grew up in rural Saskatchewan and previously worked for a regional library […]

Sandos Caracol! Two Weeks From Today!! (And A Bit About How To “Know Before You Go”)

Because the Internet – everything from YouTube to Instagram, TripAdvisor to Twitter, mommy bloggers to travel bloggers and much much more – allows you to get a sense of travel destinations before you go, I sometimes think the anticipation of a trip is (almost) as good as the trip itself. Okay, maybe not… 😉 (Oh, and if you find […]

Pissident Elect @realdonaldtrump

Lots of great humour about the reports that Donald Trump paid Russian prostitutes to urinate on him. The absolute funniest part to me is that a guy who makes up shit, lies freely, changes his story regularly and was helped greatly by “fake news” is now being undermined by an unsubstantiated rumour. Someone joked that […]

Friday Fun Link – 19 Totally Real Conversations Obama and Biden Have Had Since the Election

Not too much funny about the election results but this made me chuckle.

The Breakfast Club Cast as Social Media Sites

I always did identify with Brian right down to having a very shitty experience in shop class (er, if anybody hasn’t seen the movie, Brian’s the character on the far left, not the far right!) 😉

The First Cyber Security Election?

Most recent US Presidential elections get tagged as the first “something” – the first TV election, the first Internet election, etc. I think it’s pretty clear that 2016 is the first Cyber-Security election… Early in the campaign, Bernie Sanders’ staff accessed a Democratic National Committee database containing info about the Clinton campaign via a security hole in […]

Friday Fun Link – What The World’s Biggest Sites Looked Like At Launch

This is pretty interesting featuring screenshots of the original version of sites such as Google, Yahoo, Amazon, etc. For comparison’s sake, here’s what my very first web page looked like in December 1998 (this isn’t the first page I ever made but the earliest I could find in the Wayback Machine).       Crazy to […]

Throwback Thursday – Practice Makes Dishpan Hands? (July 13, 2006)

In 2006, I took the only Children’s Librarianship class that my library school offered.  I did extremely well in it and was one of only six students (out of a class of 20+) that our prof invited for a end-of-class meal and celebration for her most promising students. One of the reasons she saw great potential […]

A Few Thoughts On @BernieSanders Use of Technology #feelthebern #primaryday #newyork

So today was a pretty big day in the United States as born and raised Brooklyn boy, Bernie Sanders went up against adopted hometown gal, Hillary Clinton in the New York primary in their ongoing battle to secure the Democratic Party nomination. As someone who’s very interested in the use of digital technology and social media in politics, I […]
