I’ve been experimenting with various “auto-post” options, using this blog’s remote posting plugin. A few have come from my Delicious account, but it turns out that can only be done daily or not at all. So this comes from Diigo–which generally tries to tame what Delicious does and add a slew of features. Problem, however, is that the auto-posting is not yet working, so this one’s manual (though sent directly from the Diigo site).

Hope, Hype and VoIP: Riding the Library Technology Cycle
First chapter of new book by Char Booth, freely downloadable.
ebrary: Library & KM Center
Free LIS e-books. “over 140 titles” Publishers include Emerald, Greenwood, others. Didn’t see a lot of interesting content, but potentially.
Helium - Where Knowledge Rules
Fabulous site for demonstrating problems of user-generated content. Provides links to author pages that often demonstrate a total lack of authority. Check e.g. “How BP Gulf disaster may have triggered a ‘world-killing’ event”
Bounce – A fun and easy way to share ideas on a website
Captures screenshot of live website, provides elegant bordering + notes interface (better than Diigo, SharedCopy, etc.), and public link. But it grabs the screenshot itself, so can’t use with authenticated pages.
Dynamic Drive- Links and Tooltips
Lots of possibilities here for adding explanatory tips to image map (or anything else). Many rely on mouseover, need to modify this for mobile devices.
