Technology Book Club: Ideas and Action

Have any of you hosted or participated in a technology book club? We're trying to get a group started here in Kansas, with Making is Connecting as our first title.

Highly Contagious

There's a nasty cold making its germ-infested way from person to person here in Kansas City and despite washing my hands 20 times per day and eating Vitamin C like candy, it has at last caught up to me. Luckily, I telecommute so am still able to work without needing to worry about spreading the bug to coworkers. While I don't like contagious colds, I do love infectious ideas and I need to thank my friend Chris Jowaisas (MaintainIT Steering Committee member)  for my latest  bout of curiosity.The topic?? Believe it or not, it's evaluations and metrics.

Better Together

Thank you to Stephanie Gerding for facilitating today's MaintainIT Book Club Discussion and thank you to the participants for contributing ideas and examples, too. The chapter being discussed was "Effectively Collaborating with Other Libraries and Partners". The discussion is archived if you would like to listen to it.
