LibraryThing

LibraryThing is one of my favorite web 2.0 sites. As I mentioned in an earlier post, it is Flickr for bookworms. One of my missions is to always have a book that I’m actively reading – something I keep around with a bookmark in it, reading it whenever I get a chance. Turns out LibraryThing is a great way for me to keep a pulse on all of it, if nothing else than to have a visual reminder of what it is I read so that I can stoke some memory of the details for the things I’ve been learning along the way.

So lately they’ve added a few new features, and one feature I particularly like is that they added a status feature to indicate what is currently being read. Another feature I discovered recently was the ability to post a list to my weblog, as I’ll do here (sorry non-JavaScript-enabled clients:)

As you can see, not a lot of this is fiction – just technical and theoretical mumbo-jumbo for the most part. It is my hope someday to get over the technology goals I currently have, and start reading something more fun, like some more Marquez or Lorca.

  1. Commenting three weeks later – that’s a very geeky list. I’ve read two books on the list: Digital Identity and Envisioning Information.

    I’ve been a Tufte disciple for 25 years. Last year, I attended my first Tufte seminar. It was fabulous.

    In regards to Digital Identity, it’s our Identity Management bible and we worked with Phil (the author) to figure out a good strategy for figuring out a good IdMA roapmap/strategy. A meta-strategy! Phil is great!
