Librarians should play video games?

A controversial argument, to be sure, but one I support wholeheartedly.  Also, their computer guys should have all the major gaming consoles, just to keep up on the technology.  Are you reading this, honey?  Honey?

IP TV on my PC? PU.

So I thought I'd tune into the UM IPTV demo and see who Colbert is putting on notice today.  But somehow, the Comedy Central feed wound up tuned into Discovery Health Channel.  So instead of Colbert, I get Rabbi Shmuley Boteach -- you know, the short one with the frizzy whiskers.

Just as well, I'd have a hard time getting any work done with Colbert in the corner being all righteous and stuff.

Playing Catch-Up.

As a guy who works with computers in a UM library, I am excited to participate in MLibrary 2.0. I actually wanted to set up this Mblog before I knew that was Step One. So I'm getting on track. But now I see that I missed Internet Folk Hero Jessamyn. If only I'd started here two weeks sooner.

The facebook account will be forthcoming.

Hey - yo, World!

Much like the service desk at Costco, this blog entry is a point of many happy returns:
- a return of my "professional" blog, which I have once again festooned with the same poor pun on The Gruber's site title.
- a return to MovableType, which I haven't spent any time with since we used it for our wedding website, which is dead.
- a return to the University of Michigan in a new role! Previously, I starred in the front office of LS&A Media Services in Angell Hall. Before that, I was understudy for "Guy With Bad Haircut #2."

Pretty much all the interesting stuff from the old blog somehow managed to get enshrined at The Internet Archive. I will work on moving those entries over to this blog as time permits. Oh yes, I'll get right on it.
