Notelets: Educause, library catalogue APIs, Roy Tennant moving to OCLC, Citizendium API

I wish I could attend the Educause Western Regional Conference happening the week after next in SF, whose speaker list includes a number of folks I know personally.

It's great to see more library catalogs with APIs, such as those documented in REST output from Huddersfield's catalogue.

Congratulations to Roy Tennant on his new position at OCLC:

    With OCLC I have an incredible opportunity to be active on a broader stage. OCLC is big enough to put libraries on the Internet map in a way that none of us could achieve alone. Open WorldCat is but one example of many. I will be working as a Senior Program Manager with the RLG Programs unit of OCLC Research and Programs. I will report to Jim Michalko, who in turn reports to Lorcan Dempsey. I have met virtually all of the top management team at OCLC and I've been very impressed. They know where things are heading and they're determined to position libraries in a way that will do us the most good.

It's a big loss for CDL — but I'm looking forward to seeing Roy's influence at work on the larger playing field of OCLC.

I unintentionally deleted all my cookies in Firefox Argh. The interface should have prompted me that I was deleting all my cookies and not just the one I had highlighted. and deleting cookies — should be prompted!

Any reason to use Shelfari instead of LibraryThing?
