Google docs- Cakes are the new shoes

According to Linda Slater’s article in ES magazine of 10/06/2010 http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/lifestyle/article-23843381-the-bun-fight.do cakes are the new must have for your discerning fasionista. Something to do with cakes being somewhat cheaper than shoes (which is useful in these financially challenging times!

To this end I have set up a spreadsheet listing the ‘must have’ cakes of the season which include a selection of the cakes mentioned in the article and a few I have thrown in for fun… apologies for being cupcake heavy. Any of my colleagues can add their must have cake list to this spreadsheet.

The spreadsheet is available at http://tinyurl.com/362qec3

BTW I do like Cocomaya gluten free muffin

Social Networking- Facebook- My thoughts

Social networking- ten things I have done on Facebook

1. Shared my love of the music of Curtis Mayfield by uploading two videos (got a couple of nice comments too!)
2. Uploaded two Guardian articles on the treatment of Asylum Seekers
3. Joined groups for my favourite TV programmes ‘The Wire’, ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘The Daily show’
4. Managed to connect with all my many cousins- including two in New Zealand and two in South Africa and some long lost ones in Ulster!
5. May have caused a bit of a rift by indicating I was going to an event held by one cousin rather than one another cousin was holding at same time!
6. Kept my friends updated on my trip to Ireland
7. Sent an article about Stevie Wonder to my favourite DJ
8. Joined a group asking for the release of great Iranian director Jafar Panahi
9. Became Friends with members of my bookgroup
10. Got updates on events from British library and British Museum

Some Downsides of Facebook-

1. People can tag you in pictures you look awful in (I have experience of this!)
2. I wanted to keep my facebook account for work by my relatives quickly gatecrashed it!
3. You can’t edit your post unless you delete them
4. The search facility is often difficult to navigate
5. I am still not au fait with the etiquette of declining a Friend request!

In my personal account I follow all three surviving June 42'ers

Brian Wilson @brianwilsonlive. Brian follows 7 tweeters (including Bob Dylan!) and has 1873 followers. He has 89 tweets

Gilberto Gil @gilbertogil- Gilberto is the most enthusiastic follower with 83 and has 33,363 followers. He is also most enthusastic tweeter with 482 tweets

Things I found on Delicious!

-Penn Treaty Museum (via tag- Quaker)

-How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you (via hotlist)

-Digitial economy act- this means war from Guradian Website (via fresh bookmarks)

-The learn list (via tag- tutorials)

Apps I like on my Igoogle

I like the unit converter- very useful!

I like the google reader which updates blogs I follow (could be a bit clearer if I have already read the entry though!)

I like Guardian World News

I like national rail enquiries

I like the 5 day weather forecast

And I especially like art of the day!

I like also that I could put time on left hand side and put apps I tend not to use on right

Not so impressed by the ebay app which does not work that well

Podcasts

Women’s hour podcast

I am looking forward to downloading and listening to some women’s hour podcasts!
http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/whnews/

Also some interesting podcasts at BL about digitalization
http://www.bl.uk/whatson/podcasts/exhibition/codex/index.html

Also good to see Sherlock Holmes is on the case when it comes to Library conservation

Also this really is not the sort of behaviour we should be encouraging in the Library…
