Slides from a presentation I gave to the Manitoba Librarians Conference on May 9, 2007. There was a fair bit of video and audio content that is not included in these slides although there are screen capture placeholders.

Present Ever Posted by Robert Jordan on December 22nd, 2006 in the
Robert Jordans Blog category This is a very short post, Im afraid.
I know its been awhile since I posted last, but various things kept
getting in the way. Still, here goes, with the best Christmas
present Ive ever received. Something I had to share without any
delay.As you all no doubt know by now, the marker for amyloids is
something called Lambda Light Chains, which are found in the blood.
The normal range is between 1 and 3. Five months ago, I was at 75.
Four months ago, that had gone up to 96. The higher the LLC number,
the worse for you. So I wasnt doing so hot.This morning the Mayo
gave me my most recent LLC number. 3.14!!!! No, that isnt a typo.
3.14!!! Im on the brink of normal. Something I never thought Id say
about myself in any regard, frankly. Ive got Liston the ropes,
guys, and I really believe that your prayers and well-wishes have
helped put him there. Now I just have to put him on the canvas.
This isnt a cure, and Im not even sure whether it will count as
remission, but it means Im still on my feet and will be for a while
yet. 3.14! Hot damn!Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
everybody.Ill talk to you again after the 1st.RJSource:

author JK Rowling has updated her diary with news that her favorite
book in the series is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and what
better way to end.She also says:Some of you have expressed a (much
more muted!) mixture of happiness and sadness at the prospect of
the last book being published, and that has meant more than I can
tell you. If it comes as any consolation, I think that there will
be plenty to continue arguing and speculating about, even after
Deathly Hallows comes out. So if youre not yet ready to quit the
message boards, do not despair...Ms. Rowling has also added some
thoughts to her rumors section and answers two frequently asked

Students,It is an exceptionally nice honor to have you reading my
novel in your Modern American Literature class! Im extremely
impressed with your weblog, which Ive been following. What fun for
the author to listen in on your discussions and see the wonderful
and provocative artistic interpretations that youve created. The
experience has opened my eyes to new ideas about my own work! 22.

things you have learned so far this semester and create (not copy)
four problems that are representative of what you have learned.
Provide annotated solutions to the problems; they should be
annotated well enough for an interested learner to understand and
learn from you. Your problems should demonstrate the upper limit of
your understanding of the concepts. 39. Listen to an Expert Voice
