Lee went into his music history book and read that today is the 42nd anniversary of the release of Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisted. Back in August 1965 I returned from a croo country bus tour of the USA. I discovered Dylan at that time when Like a Rolling Stone was a big hit on the radio.

Since this past week was so hectic with the Boston trip and Ralph's funeral, we decided to take it easy today. We saw the movie Rush Hour 3 at the local multiplex. It was nothing to get excited about. I thought readers of this blog might want to see my photos from my last two vacations and Lee's trip to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.

Since things are slow in August at the NJIT Library I decided to go to a library conference today at Baruch College in Manhattan. It is always nice not to have to travel to Newark. This conference was called a Library Camp. It was different since the program was not set until today. Participants could send via e-mail or a wiki their suggestions for a conference. I attended three sessions:
Web 2.0 initiatives in libraries
There was a good exchange with colleagues from other libraries.
The web site for this conference is http://librarycampnyc.wikispaces.com/
