Not just libraries…

July 29, 2005

Since EventKeeper began appearing on web sites a few years back, we’ve taken great pleasure in the diversity of our subscribers: their location, their mission, how they found us, etc. The last few weeks have seen lots of really exciting activity, and here are some examples.

From Great Britian, we’re pleased to welcome the The Skelton Community Forum ; from Fall River, Massachusetts, People, Incorporated  which offers a range of services to people with developmental disabilities, and finally to Accept Education Collaborative, and their mission of "providing exemplary programs that meet our member districts needs by offering services for all students, staff and communities when it is determined that such programs and services can most effectively be provided collaboratively."

Pretty exciting stuff, and we’re delighted to be part of it.

One great looking blog…

July 28, 2005

Blogs are everywhere these days, and even the casual web surfer can locate a blog for about any topic under the sun. We think this blog, which details the Missouri River Regional Library Expansion project, offers useful information of wide community interest, written in clean, crisp prose. Works for us.

Extreme Makeover..

July 22, 2005

Its time. Our old and faithful web site, which we love a lot, is showing some wear and tear, and we’ve decided to redesign it to better communicate the cool things that EventKeeper, TixKeeper, (and real soon) GridKeeper can do.

We’ve always made it a point to listen to what our customers want and need in the software we design and build. Why should this be different?

We’d love to hear from you about what you like to see in a web site. Suggestions are welcome. We’re hoping to go live with something brand new by late 2005.

Don’t worry; whatever we do, Wingnut will remain.

Books on Pods

July 7, 2005

The South Huntington Public Library on Long Island has become one of the first libraries in the country to loan out books stored on iPod Shuffles. Books on tape and CD have long been a staple of library offerings, and now can be offered on the popular and portable music players. Its always interesting to see how libraries utilize and adapt to new technology and accompanying patron preferences.
