The button jar

When I was a kid, I loved the button jar my mom had. It was filleButtonsd with stray buttons, so you never knew what you were going to find.  My post today is like that -- just a few random, little things:

--For the last few weeks, I’ve been taking an Ed2Go class called  What's New in Microsoft Office 2007.   I’ve been using Office 2007 since....well...2007, but I’ve still learned a lot of tips and tricks,  and I think it’s a worthwhile time investment if you want to do more with Office.  Ed2Go classes are eligible for SCLS continuing education grants, which may make the class even more appealing!

--I’ve been playing around with Wordnik recently.  It’s an interesting place for those of us who love words.  It compiles definitions, examples of how words are used on various websites, recent tweets with the word, and more.  One word of caution:  if a word has been misspelled somewhere out there on the web, it’ll still appear in Wordnik, though it won’t have any definitions from an official dictionary.  Check out mazipan for an example.

--This will be my last official post for TechBits.  Jon Mark Bolthouse, our new Technology Projects Manager, will be taking my place as a regular contributor…but I’m sure I’ll be making an occasional guest post.  Meanwhile, when I come across interesting articles and tidbits, I’ll be putting them on my Twitter feed.   I promise that it will average no more than one post per day (and probably much less!).  Thanks to all of you who have read and commented on my posts!!
