One of the cool things I have discovered I love about blogging, apart from statistic watching, is looking at the incoming links. So far we haven’t got too many that aren’t from one of our own blogs linking us back to here. These show that we are part of a much larger conversation about libraries.
With a view to sharing the link love, here are a couple of links that are coming into my posts.
The first link is from Historia I Media, which appears to be Checkoslovakian is a Polish blog. I can’t read what they are saying, but it appears to be about Penny Carnaby’s talk about the Delete Generation mentioned in my blog posting Preserving Digital Heritage from June the 1st. As I don’t understand a word of what the author is discussing I can’t see if we are just linked too or if the post is mentioned, but it is way cool to think someone was reading us even if I can’t read them. 🙂
The second came from last weeks post There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch! I was quite exciting about this link as it comes from a library related podcast in the United States, LISNews Librarian And Information Science News. The mention comes in at about the three minute mark, and is only brief, but it gives you a glow to know that you are part of a global conversation. 🙂
There is something quite satisfying about being part of that conversation, and in the easy way that conversation can occur, despite disparate languages and locations. As you know I used to be rather sceptical about the Internet especially Social Media, but now I think you could say my conversion is complete.
Since, unlike Elvis I am interested in more conversation not less, here are a number of library related podcasts you may also be interested.
