Tumblr’s Meme Librarian has the best job on the Internet

“Amanda Brennan is a librarian for the Internet. Brennan’s official job title is content and community associate at Tumblr, but everyone at the microblogging platform calls her their “meme librarian.” She spends her days on the front lines of an online meme’s creation, dissemination and, yes, inevitable death.” (via Washington Post)

And we’re off! DPLA Tumblr up and running

“As our current users know, the depth of the riches in the DPLA sees no bounds. So, today we’re launching a brand-new DPLA tumblr to bring these riches to new audiences. Five to seven posts per month will feature (mostly) images from our partners’ collections, and when we can, we’ll provide some context, commentary, or a story to go along. Join us for some beautiful images, a little history, and a lot of fun!” (via Digital Public Library of America)

Librarian Shaming lets library workers share their shameful secrets

“Websites such as PostSecret have long let Internet users spill their secrets in anonymity. Now librarians are secretly confessing their misdeeds on the Tumblr site Librarian Shaming. Billed as “a place for those of us in Libraryland to come clean,” the Tumblr has librarians upload pictures of themselves with a confession written on paper held in front of their face, concealing their identity. According to the site, it was inspired by a post on the blog for the Dracut Library in Massachusetts, which had the Dracut librarians hold up their own confessions in front of their faces.” (via CSMonitor.com)

Do you use ‘Profilactic’?

Webware – “Profilactic, which I covered previously, is now available to the public. It’s a personal feed aggregator: You tell it where you post online, and it pulls all the feeds together. You can point people to this “mashup” page, or use one of the site’s widgets to embed that info in your own profile page or blog.”

OK. Worse name for a Web 2.0 tool. Ever!

I use Tumblr for this type of thing and have been very happy with it.

2 Feed added to I Tumbld

My linkblog is still going strong. In fact, last night I added feeds for my Flickr and Twitter accounts.

Lots of good stuff on the linkblog over the past few days, including a pic of Katherine McPhee (sorry, I couldn’t help it).

I Tumbld…

Just a reminder that my linkblog is still going strong. I used to have all of the links go directly into Twitter, but it came to be a bit much.
