After 16 years, we’ve decided the time has come to bid a fond farewell to Infopeople’s blog.
Infopeople introduced its first blog, Wazzup?, in August 2004 to replace the “New on the Site” section of the Infopeople website. Wazzup included information about new additions to the Infopeople website, but also presented general news from and about Infopeople, and offered library-related information that various Infopeople staff members (“Infopeeps”) found interesting. In September 2005 we decided to do a bit of blog-cleaning, and primary among the tasks we undertook was to rename Wazzup. After a year it seemed a little, well, hokey, as a name and not representative of what we wanted the Infopeople blog to be. Thus was born the slightly less hokey Infoblog.
Over the past 16 years, we’ve posted about learning, libraries, technology and all the points at which these things intersect. It’s been a great ride, but times and technology change and we are focusing on other better ways to communicate our message.
