I find myself often linking to Michael’s posts on Tame the Web. So much so that I would urge all of my readers to subscribe to his blog (most of whom already have, I’d bet). Instead of looking back at 2004, like so many others have, Michael listed Twelve Techie Things for Librarians 2005, which are tech-related issues/devices/software/ideas that will likely become increasingly relevant to tech-savvy librarians this year. Along with the list, he included explanations of each thing and useful links. He makes some really great predictions about what we will likely be talking about in 2005, and what we definitely should be talking about. I was thrilled to see mentions of OSS and the importance of designing usable user interfaces (obvious, but not — it seems — to everyone when you look at many library’s interfaces). Take a look!
