Library Message?

I took the photo while at the library earlier this week.  I’m not certain that our local library is img_3200sending the most encouraging message with this display outside their doors.  We have three effigies of children in onesies chained/tied to the Library lamppost reading books.  Is this really the message we want to send to our kids about the library and reading?

MapQuest introduces pedestrian routes.

Denver based MapQuest began offering a new service today.

Reading the article reminded me again that MapQuest is a local Denver area company. I have become so use to using Google Maps, that using MapQuest had fallen by the wayside.

I decided to take a look around MapQuest to see not only the new service, and to also see what other features and benefits they offer.

I quickly found out that they haven’t updated their database in a while. In addition to the outdated database, in the quick local search I performed, found business’s with incorrect names as well as business’s that aren’t where MapQuest says they are.

My short ten minute exercise reinforced, when I’m looking for information or places I’ve never been via the net, I make sure to check at least two sources.

How to get into Social Media.


A couple of weeks ago my friend Leigh Hanlon and I took a ride to Idaho Springs, and Leigh interviewed me about Social Media. As Leigh says, it was rather fitting as we have become friends thanks to Social Media. Give the podcast a listen as I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
