It's All Good in the 'Hood

I use social media and so should you, or at least that's what they say. Librarians Michael Porter, David Lee King, and Joe Murphy got kudos in School Library Journal for shaking their social media money-makers.

YAY Open Source! The Library of Congress plans to "streamline the process for releasing software as open source". (via DigitalKoans)

This picture of La Bibliothèque infernale was in my Google Reader, but it is via a tumblr account, so I Googled it and the first result was from a collector of 19th century stereoscopes. Check out this print and others. They are fascinating and beautiful. (By the way, why is the word "googled" considered misspelled in Blogger?)

On to food . . .

The Italian Ice Cream University has seen a 90% rise in enrollment due to the recession. I'd like to attend this University, let me tell you.

This slice of Guinness Chocolate Cake with Irish Whisky Ganache and Bailey's Buttercream cake via Food Porn Daily looks very, very good. It's being pushed to the top of my to-bake list.
