I designed this button as an attention grabber for a news article on the library’s website.

These are some buttons I made to be used as an icon for the windows desktop of the network PCs in the library. The idea was to make a button which people can press if they need assistance with an application installed on the PC or to call up help if some application or network connection is not working. The darker ivory button was chosen out of the five I designed because it stands out best against the default blue of the windows XP desktop.
I’ve made a custom search engine that searches 33 Dutch, Flemish and English languages sites (mainly .org) on the topic of corporate social responsibilty (CSR) or maatschappelijk verantwoord ondernemen (MVO) in Dutch.

I’d like to say a big thankyou to the SPOETNIK team for the tip about the podcasts on Guardian Unlimited Books. I found a podcast there featuring an interview with my favorite author, Peter Carey. In the interview Peter also reads two excerpts from his latest book, His Illegal Self. I wrote a short post on this book two weeks back. I’d read it in one sitting because I simply wasn’t able to put the book down.
I’ve added the Guardian Unlimited Books podcast feed to my Netvibes. It works perfectly. All I need to do is press the ‘play’ button. I also get the option in the feed to download the podcast to my computer.
When Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, delivered an apology to the indigenous people of Australia and in particular to the stolen generations he probably didn’t think about how this message could be picked up and celebrated by the GetUp! musicians and activists. Parts of this historic speech have been ‘sampled’ and blended into a new release of the Paul Kelly & Kev Carmody classic that was released today. The song is performed by the Getup Mob (Kev Carmody, Paul Kelly, Urthboy, Missy Higgins, Dan Sultan and Mia Dyson). See the GetUp Mob perform the song.
I spent a little time this evening exchanging invitations to social networks and filling in profile information. I never did like writing CVs and luckily haven’t had to very often in my working life. Now in a short space of time I’ve had to fill in profiles for 4 different networks. This is getting to be a chore, just like my ever growing list of registration information and passwords. You can go back later to update your profile and add photos. Maybe I’ll do that if I ever get around to updating my CV!
