Just testing Squeet… Thanks!
Update: I’ve added a library to the list of videoblogging libraries:
- Westerville Public Library, which I mentioned yesterday. They seem to be focusing on videos of programming right now.
- Manchester Public Library’s Teen Matrix – “a video podcast about books.” Not sure if they plan to update this (all three videos are from Nov 2005).
- Orange County Library System is also offering videoblogs. They have set up their videoblogs to be compatible with iTunes – wow.
- Public Library Delft is videoblogging, podcasting, and blogging. Whew!
- Kenton County Public Library’s Off the Shelf program: “airs every week on Monday and Wednesday at 9:30 pm, and then again on Saturday at 4:30 pm on Insight Channel 21. You can also subscribe using iTunes or our RSS feed.” Found via Librarystuff.net
Now… anyone else? Does anyone know of any other library-oriented videoblogs not mentioned here? Tell me about them please!

Take a peek at this cool job-ad… The NYTimes, huge media company, uses WordPress for their blogs. Granted, they have integrated WordPress rather nicely on their site, but still…
Whether you’re a big, old media company or a tiny rural library, you can benefit from free, open-source blogging tools!
ps – also take a look at the 37signals Job Board. The job titles are great, for starters (i.e., Rails Ninja, AJAX Hacker, Front End Wizard). But it’s also a great place to see what cutting-edge skills are needed for current state-of-the-art websites.
