Vermont Blog Roundup

Handknit_iphone Links to items of interest on Vermont blogs this week:

• Curious about iPhone usage in Vermont? Doug Cadmus of Bloggle offers a comprehensive, link-filled blog post addressing the matter. I still haven't seen one of the suckers. This image shows a knitted iPhone from this guy's blog.

• Rebecca Grannis and Chapin Spencer of Local Motion have set up a survey kiosk on the Burlington bike path. They pose questions and invite people who pass by to write down answers and put them in a box. Every so often, they post the answers on the Burlington Bike Path Speak blog. This month's question: "What is your most embarrassing moment?"

They posted a few answers earlier this month, and I've been checking frequently to see the rest. They must have put them up in the last few days. Here they are. My favorites:

--I crashed into the bagel store in Shelburne two years ago!

--Tired from shopping I walked into a 3-way mirror and said "Oh, excuse me, I'm sorry" to myself!

--When I was four, I passed gas on an airplane and said "I have gas" - A. from S. Burlington

• Who's blogging about social media (Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, etc.) in Vermont? Dan York, Elaine Young, Meredith Farkas, Jessamyn West, Morgan Aldridge... If I were to compile a comprehensive list, who would I include? I'm looking for people who write often about social media tools. Feel free to suggest sites you like.

• Catblogging — Is this person for real? I just don't understand how someone could be that into a cat. Sorry, cat people.

• Speaking of furry animals, Don't kill the hampster! [sic] Very funny. From My Innermost Thoughts Gone Public. 

Happy Birthday S.R. Wild!

• The Champlain College Library's website has been named College Library Website of the Month, according to The Sheck Spot.

P.S. Love the knitted iPod... is that legal in Vermont?

Ooops... Sorry I forgot about you, Michael!

And that's an iPhone, not an iPod. The pods are indeed legal. Not so much the iPhones.
