Wasn't that a song by the Who?
But I digress. Already.
This week's topic for the Tuesday Thingers group is about Library Thing and mobile devices:
Were you aware that LT had a mobile version of the site? Do you ever visit sites via a mobile device? Can you think of anything this would help you with?
Yes, I guess I did know about LT's mobile capabilities. But I've ignored them. See – I'm one of the least knowledgeable people in the world when it comes to mobile technology. My cell phone is so ancient (and yet, it's only a few years old) that it isn't set up to access email or the internet or play games or take photos. Or play the ocarina. It rings, I answer. That's it.
To me a mobile device is a bicycle or a wheelchair.
I don't text or IM. Although I think my cell phone is sophisticated enough for that – I would not even know how to go about it.
But having said all that, I should also say that I can see how wonderfully convenient it would be to have access to my library catalogue when I'm out book shopping or library browsing. Yes, I have on occasion come home with a copy of a book that's already sitting on my shelves. Avoiding that would be an obvious good thing. So maybe when I finally decide to upgrade to a jazzier mobile device, I'll give LT's mobile thingies a try.
