Bibliotech 20:
The Amazing LibraryBox

I had the opportunity to be on this great podcast, and Kayhan, Erin, and Doug were terrifically kind to me and the LibraryBox project. You can listen in here, or click the More Info below to head over the Dquarium site for more info.

NCompass Live

I sat in with the hosts of the Nebraska State Library Commission technology webcast (NCompass) to talk LibraryBox. Michael and Christa were willing to give my crazy webcam antics a try, and I don't think it turned out too bad. Check the video, or head over to the NCompass page linked below for more options.

Make Magazine

It hasn't been accepted yet, and may still be rejected, but I was asked to, and wrote, an article on LibraryBox for Make Magazine. Make is an awesome group, really working to move the Maker/Creation space forward. It's on the Make publication schedule for July 2013, so watch out!

Library Journal

A nice article on the project by Matt Enis, entitled Open-Source LibraryBox Project Branches Out. From the article: “I do definitely think that the underlying ethos of a library is every book its reader,” Griffey said. “The underlying ethos is that you find a way to get the information to people who need the information… If this project can help to do that in these areas, ease the difficulty in some way, I will work on it as long as I possibly can.”

Circulating Ideas 19

I was thrilled to be on Steve Thomas' great podcast interview series, Circulating Ideas in late 2012. We talked about lots of library technology issues, both real and science fiction, but the major source of our discussion was LibraryBox, how I came up with the idea, what the project is, and why I'm interested in keeping it going.

This Week in Libraries

I was fortunate to be the guest for Episode 91 of This Week in Libraries, the awesome videocast show by Erik Boekesteijn and Jaap van de Geer. In the episode, we talk about many things, but one of them is, of course, LibraryBox.
