Travel, Cooking, Chrome, & Copyright

Yes, it is another one of those potpourri days on The Waki Librarian. It is a day to show off, yet again, how cool Lifehacker is and also to help you get ramped up for the back-to-school season (even if you aren’t going back to school). So without further ado, here are the goodies of the day!

Do you travel a lot? Do you want to be more productive? Lifehacker has come up with a great list of the Top 10 Tactics for Productive Travel. I plan on utilizing some of these tips on my next cross-country trip. Now if we could only get all the airports to offer free wi-fi…

Next we need to offer a happy belated birthday to Google Chrome. This is only belated because I hadn’t gotten around to linking to this great post on Lifehacker. Definitely check out the time lapsed video on the creation of the Google Chrome cake. I am a total Google Chrome convert and can’t wait to see what new tweaks and upgrades this next year will bring for Chrome.

Of course, with school having started (or soon starting) we have to talk about copyright. So here is a question for you, Should Copyright of Academic Works be Abolished? Full disclaimer: I haven’t finished this article yet, but I think it is a really interesting idea and would be very helpful to the open access movement.

Finally, here is Lifehacker’s An Exhaustive Geek Guide to managing Your Recipes Online, because we all know that no one wants to go hunting around for a recipe while trying to make dinner. I am continually amazed by the plethora of great recipes that I can access on the web. I guess I should get it together with these recipe organizers–right now all my recipes are simply bookmarked on delicious! And if you want a recipe to get inspired, check out this awesome recipe for ice cream gyoza.

Have a great day, read a bunch and the Waki Librarian will be back with more later this week.
