I'm developing a blog around useful web 2.0 tools.
I find so much of web 2.0 is all flash, no substance. Lots of blogsters report on the latest and niftiest innovations, but no one seems to be investigating how to use them. I think the average luddite teacher needs practice not theory; so I'm doing a casual blog that focuses on tools that either have been successfully used or have an obvious application. It's called Who d' what now?

Greetings Alan,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

So happy to see you are an international librarian now! I remember writing you last year about the fairs. I hope you are enjoying Vietnam.
