I recently spent a day in the Teen Tech Lab at the McCracken County Public Library in Paducah, Kentucky. Although I wasn’t there for gaming (the library generously allowed the lab to be closed from 9-3 for a technology planning workshop for librarians), I did have a chance to talk to Jay and Roy – the library “tech guys” – about the extensive gaming opportunities provided at the library.

Many librarians have shared with us the immense efforts they undertake to support geographically distributed branches. Jim Lynch, the Computer Recycling & Reuse Director forTechSoup’s GreenTech Program recently posted about saving money on travel, and I thought his throughts were worth a re-post.

Earlier this week, I blogged a bit about my week in Kentucky and I have a few more posts from that trip in the works. I was there to provide "Taking on Technology" workshops with Kendra Morgan (TechAtlas). One of the things we talked about during the day was 2.0 technologies.

I spent the last week of February traveling around the great state of Kentucky, providing technology training with Kendra Morgan (of WebJunction TechAtlas fame). We provided workshops in 3 different locations around the state: Lexington, Paducah, and Somerset.  The workshops were titled, “Taking on Technology” and focused on learning, innovation, and technology planning.

Much fun is had! We're lucky to have an eclectic group who hail from all corners of the country and represent different flavors of librarianship.

If you're anything like me, you can spend hours staring at a beautiful, well-designed map. An old acquaintance of mine decorated his house with framed maps of the various states he'd lived in. Well-made maps and information graphics give me "the big picture" so much faster than plain text. The more complicated the subject, the truer this is.
