Here's a book recommendation for you.

Weaving The Web: The Past, Present and Future of The World Wide Web by Its Inventor by Tim Berners-Lee.

Tim Berners-Lee is the man responsible for the innovation that you are using now. The World Wide Web. While he didn't invent the Internet, which some people are convinced is the same as the Web, he did bring together the ideas of hypertext and the internet to give a more linked entity. And all to mimic the workings of the human brain.

Berners-Lee relates the creation and his thoughts on the creation, or more the emergence of the Web in detail and gives his thoughts on the way it was picked up and utilised by the world. It is a great read, especially for communication students and librarians or any who are interested in the Web and its future.

I've been fiddling about with my LibraryThing.

I'll rephrase that... I mean I've been having a look at LibraryThing again, as evidenced by the widget you see on the right hand column of this blog. I wasn't sure about LibraryThing before, and I signed up just to have a play around on the site, not expecting much.

I thought I'd give it a bit more of a go, if only to pretty up this blog page with something that looks kinda groovy.
