There's always something interesting going on with technology.
I was interested to see a new development
- now there are fields to add more information about authors and books. For books, there are editable fields for character names and significant places and - this one's interesting - editors. For authors, you can put in various biographical bits of info, including agents. If you are an author and your book(s) are in the catalog, you can edit your own. It's pretty neat. (Your books aren't
in the catalog? Sign up and add them! Then send Abby an e-mail about becoming an LT author.)
Also today, I found out several more cities
are now included in its amazing (and sometimes slightly creepy) Street Views. Now you can virtually stroll down streets in Chicago
as well as the previous cities included in the program. These are pretty cool if you're trying to remember what a street corner looks like. Or whether your neighbor was caught on camera scratching in an embarrassing place.
As readers or writers, are there technology tools or websites you can't live without? Ones that are enormous time sinks?
Yeah, we know - Crimespace fits the bill. Others?
