Conversation Starters...

Faced with an awkward silence? Feel uncomfortable in social settings? Check out the following and soon you will be the life of the party... or a pompous bore... your call.

A little search something called Pagebull, which returns visual snapshots of results....
Everything you need to know about Daylight Savings Time...
A new historic photo archive called Philly History, 25,000 images and a historic streets index...
Want to keep talking about Wikipedia? ResourceShelf provides a Wikipedia Roundup. I also just read that Wikipedia is going to be asking for proof of credentials... seems someone pretended to be something or someone they weren't.
Keeping Up When You Don't Have the Time... a list of library blogs and other recommended reading from the Shifted Librarian.
Put your cell phone down for a minute... and give props to Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone on March 7, 1876... and he wasn't blabbing away in the middle of the library either. I wonder who invented the ringtone?

Be a smartypants... Check out the History Channel's This Day in History, the Library of Congress Today in History, and AnyDay in History, which lists notable births and deaths.
