this is me

    Newer Older

    This is me. I work on the Web.

    I live in Mishawaka, Indiana (and Oak Park, Illinois) and I work with the web and librarians - examing the way the Web and emerging technologies can further the mission and vision of libraries. I've written a Weblog called Tame the Web since 2003.

    I use the Web everyday in my work: teaching, writing and speaking. I use the Web as a way to teach library students and as a way to learn myself. I capture screenshots and log URLS for future blog posts, class lectures, and food for thought.

    I use the web everyday in my life: from scanning trashy gossip blogs and pop culture pages to discovering a new recipe for hummus or a new place to visit. Connections made via he Web have encouraged me, challenged me and recently supported me through one of the worst periods of my life.

    I work on the web.

      Do you mean this is a 2-dimensional photographic projection of you as rendered by your webcam? Your statements do raise intriguing questions about what is "me-ness" in the web environment. Nice picture.

      G'day Michael. Nice to see you here on this bit of the web. I wonder how long it will take for the iwow meme to spread into the biblioblabbersphere.

      Michael, I try to read your weblog weekly. Love it and the kindness you show by sharing your knowledge. You have inspired me since I saw you at Tech Express in SC. Keep up the great work and inspiration. By the by.....there's more than one or two ways to make hummus? Who knew!!?? :-)

      You could add the tag self portrait to this one. It expresses many emotions.
