On Wired.com today...


As you might guess I did a little happy dance when I saw this on the homepage of Wired.com today. The image came from one of the staff participants in the program. (Who also happens to be the Library's graphic designer. You can tell, cant' you, by looking at her blog?)

Anyways, I just checked the stats for the site and yes, there's is definitely a "Wired effect". To be honest the exciting part of this whole learning thing to me is how other libraries are adopting the program, modifying it, and making it better. Imagine what could happen if libraries together shifted some focused and fostered this type of discovery and organic learning for their communities? I don't have to guess. I know. It would be Amazing !!!!!

Congratulations! Makes me (even more) proud to be from North Carolina. An outstanding contribution to the health of our library systems -- which continue to be an under-rated resource. Well done.
