I hope you, myself and others can make an impact. Seems NY can not afford a lot of "luxuries" many of us grew up with. I know libraries and the services they provide are not luxuries but they are looked at that way when it comes to dollars and cents these days.

Thursday Threads: Looking Backwards and Looking Forwards

As the last DLTJ Thursday Threads of the year, the stories in this post look back to what we saw in 2011 and look forward to what we may see in 2012. Looking backwards is a list of five things we learned about publishing from O’Reilly Media and Google’s 3-minute Zeitgeist video. Looking forward are a list of predictions from Fast Company and from the National Endowment for Science Technology and the Arts in the UK. At this high point when 2011 is slowing and we start down the hill of 2012, I wish you a happy and prosperous new year.

If you were interviewing someone for a job (let's say loading truck) and you felt that the person needed minimal computer/technology skills, what specific skills would you be looking for? How would you assess if the person had those skills?

Familiarity with handheld devices called personal digital assistants.  Most come equipped with some combination of features including Wifi, cell network, laser scanners, RFID readers, push to talk radio, ruggedized to milspec 8, and GPS.  Similar to a smartphone's features and apps,  but geared toward the management of storage and transportation systems.  An inventory manager today can know when an item will arrive, when there are delays, age and condition of the item, location and quantities, and upon an order being placed, how long it will take to ship, where it is en-route, when it is delayed, all in real time.  Gone are the days when the employer relies on a monthly inventory and manual tracking of sales to monitor and order resupplies.

Congrats NJ!
 
A man walks up to a computer, points to the keyboard, and says, “How come the keys aren’t in alphabetical order?”

Well, it may be the punch line of a joke, but it’s the unfortunate reality for many technologically illiterate Americans who find themselves suddenly unemployed during these tough economic times. Frankly, those who have never encountered a keyboard are ill-equipped to start searching and applying for jobs online without a cost-free crash course in computer skills.

Shall we note that Twitter seems to be failing today? Is it dying under the weight of the tweets passing though it?
