  1. Carl,
    Really enjoyed your column. Making a very clever use of AASL Confernce themes to tell your sgtory.

  2. instaGrok? I searched World War 1. I selected three items of information. When I clicked on the source, all were Wikipedia.

    How does something like this get into a school library publication?

  3. Very much enjoyed Plugged In or Tuned Out by Jennifer Helfrich. A good overview of the implications of big data and how much is tracked. Think the article would be of interest to the broader library community.
