Blake Carver is looking for someone to take over day to day operations at LISHost. I’ve pointed many of my tiny libraries there for hosting of their tiny websites. Blake is running a really sweet operation that benefits both himself and the people who host with him. If you’re technically inclined and love helping libraries, consider dropping him a line.
Blake Carver has launched his new site LISWire this week. Working with Robin “birdie” Blum they are creating a site where businesses and individuals can send news releases and get them online and subscribable/linkable. I am looking forward to being able to send this URL to all the nice well-meaning people who send me press releases in email. I always write back to them, “this sounds great, do you have a URL where I can link to this information?” and now I can give them someplace to send it so it can be linkable by them and readable by others. Blake is inviting feedback on the new site, if you have a second, drop by and give him some critique.
