Cool Toys Calendar

As previously mentioned, we’d talked about switching formats from
talking about the tools mentioned in the blog to having topical
discussion sessions. We have set a tentative calendar for topics for
the coming year. Now you can plan ahead and have an idea what you’ll
be missing. The conversations are open to the public. Feel free to
bring your friends. You can also follow the electronic Google version of 
this calendar. 

All sessions are from 12 noon to 1pm in Room 100 of the Hatcher
Graduate Library at the University of Michigan.

  2. I’ld love to hear more about some of these.. specifically the APril 26th and December 21 sessions. Any more information about these?

  3. Well, they haven’t happened yet, but there will be more information after they do happen. Usually I post something fairly quickly at the ETechLib blog, and just realized those posts on CoolToy outcomes really belong over here.
