If you then upload the PDF to ISSUE it gets even more interesting. Here's an example made with an RSS feed from Google News, keyword: bibliotek:

The eCitizen 2.0 report, commissioned by the Ministry for Government and Administration Reform, recommends that the public sector to a larger extent has to regard citizens as collaborating partners rather than as passive recipients of information.

I know, it IS a Microsoft product, and one should know better by now. I know. But on ProBlogger.net the Windows Live Writer is mentioned as an Essential PC Apps for Bloggers. And since this actually is an open tool for a change (you can use it with WP, Blogger etc... not just Microsoft products) I thought well let's try it out!
What is Windows Live Writer? It's an editing tool that supposedly boosts your blogging experience, helping you publish your content in a smoother and nicer way. I'm writing this inside Writer and after I've finished the editing it will all be published to Blogger, my preferred blogging tool at the moment.
This is what it looks like inside, while editing in Live Writer:
The "insert photo" feature was better than in Blogger, nice!
There's one feature called Insert Map where you can zoom to and save a location and finally insert it in your blogpost. I tried this twice but the only result was this:
That's all for now, now I'll press the Publish button and see what happens!

NordLib 2.0 next Friday is going to be a really interesting event: it's one of the first real efforts in the Swedish library world to actually try out different Web 2.o tools in a conference context. Not just talking, but also learning by doing! :-) The conference is (of course) on Facebook, the event will be streamed live and on the conference blog there is already some interesting comments worth responding to - in brief, the conference team seems to be very focused on making this into an extraordinary learning experience!
Please join the conversation - first of all on the conference blog - but also, if you like, here on Bibl.se! Just like the conference organizers (and other bloggers?) I will also be liveblogging from the event, making use of the cool tool Coveritlive. Just saw, by the way, that it now also has Twitter integration... can't wait to try it out!

Aaaahhhh.... Adobe AIR is like a smooth Mac-ish layer on top of a dull PC environment. Installed it the other day and must say I'm pleased. AIR based TweedDeck gives new life to Twitter and Readair spices up Google Reader. Both really worth trying!
Another thing worth doing is adding that magazine reading feeling to RSS. I recently re-discovered how pleasant and more enjoyable it is to read blog feeds when you actually can see the content, not just the headlines, and also embedded photos and videos. And it's just a mouse-click away: share your Google Reader feed online (published folders) and you'll get a much more attractive reading interface compared to reading inside Google Reader.
This is what my favourite Google Reader feed looks like when published: Biblioteksbloggar ("Library Blogs", which in my case means all kinds of blogs that are relevant to library folks, at least to me ;-)
