Who's with me?
 
International Tabletop Day is March 30

We at +Geek & Sundry have wanted to do International #Tabletop  Day since we premiered a year ago, and we’ve been working on making it happen for almost as long.

At tabletopday.com, you can find and join events in your town, or create your own! You can play wherever you want, but if you go to your friendly local gameshop, you may just get one of the Tabletop Day exclusive bonuses for games like Gloom, Dixit, 7 Wonders, Castle Panic, Smash Up, and more. It’s so so so awesome, you guys, and I can’t wait for you to see the amazing things our friends in the games industry have created for you.

The very best thing about Tabletop, for me, isn’t that I get to play games for my job or that I get to hang out with awesome people while I do it. I know that seems like it would be the most awesome thing about Tabletop, but it isn’t. The most awesome thing about Tabletop is the community of people who have rediscovered their love of gaming, or started a game night, or have somehow been inspired by our show to play more games. International Tabletop Day is all about you, and it is designed to celebrate the community that inspires me to work as hard as I can to make the best show I can.

I hope you’ll join us on #Tabletopday , and play more games!

Facebook Graph Search, first reaction: "Hey, I wonder if this idea works better over on my Google Plus account."

I'm looking for advice on software for generating epub files. I'm looking at Sigil and Pandoc at the moment, but open to suggestion. (The scenario at hand is that I'm knitting together 6 reports from working groups into a single document for a faculty retreat, so this is more of an editing job than a composition job, if that matters.)

Not necessarily. On first blush, Calibre looked more complicated than Sigil and less powerful than Pandoc, but I must admit that I stopped instead of investigating that impression.

This letter should be required reading in every library school (and probably every school touching on any kind of management). This is how we do it.

Here's the end of my commencement speech.
"These new worlds lie before you, both the grim one and the glorious alternative. Your choice of our futures is only a few steps away.
-You now have to dream hard, relearning and reimagining this world we've given you, then flinging your mind as far as you can - then farther still.
-You will make a mess, sometimes, breaking things and sowing chaos. Good! that's how we learn... and it keeps the rest of us on our toes.
-You have to dig deep into yourself, summoning up your hard-won knowledge and your freshly rediscovered soul, then be ready to unleash it all.
It’s time to hack the unsuspecting outside world. Good luck."

Spam of the day: "Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got bitten by a T-Rex?" Coursera, I do not need a MOOC to answer this.

Honestly, Tom, if T-Rexes can playfully nibble a smaller mammal, that's even more distressing.

As long as I'm giving out wings, kudos to Jack Daniels for a darn nice (if apparently ineffective) cease-and-desist order. Just because you have to protect your trademark if you want to keep your trademark, doesn't mean you have to be a jerk about it.

Not terrifically impressed with the list for my birthday, but it's a fun idea. And I'm taking some amusement at finding out that the data is improperly escaped - my list includes "RICH MAN" by "POOR MAN, Irwin Shaw."
