Friday Fun: If You Have Twelve Seconds To Spare

I just got back from the EXCELLENT Internet Librarian 2008 Conference, sponsored by Information Today...and yes, I did indeed **squee!** aloud to see Pop Goes the Library, The Book, on the cover of the catalog tucked into my nifty tote.

My brain is filled right up to the top, and I hope to have much more to share with Pop, The Blog, over the next few weeks concerning the conference and the amazing people there, but for Friday Fun, here's a quick little snippet.

Connie Crosby gave a great talk on Instant Audio and Video in which she discussed all sorts of very cool, cheap-to-free sites that allow online production and distribution of, yes, audio and video. One of my favs? 12Seconds.tv, which might be described as "Twitter with video." Each post is only, you guessed it, 12 seconds long. I searched the word "library" and came up with 89 returns, including a series called Biography of the Day, Cupcake Library TV (!!!), and, of course, a very nicely done SHHH! It's in "public alpha," so go request an invite! I just did!
