Still on sale!

"Creating a Winning Online Exhibition" is still available in the ALA Bookstore at the ALA Annual Conference.

Interestingly, in the past 2 months, I've had a number of contacts from people who are using the book. Yesterday I had lunch with someone who was reading the book and getting ready to create his first online exhibition.

Good to know that the book is still useful!

Martin's Marinara

Well, I've learned the power of Twitter! On June 11, I posted a tweet about making marinara sauce. Since then, I've had a number of requests on exactly what the recipe is. Since it's a few more than 140 characters, I'll have to revert to old fashion blog technology to get out the recipe (though it will also be on Facebook!).

For those of you interested more recipes, I recommend two nifty sites:

So, on to the marinar!
