2006: Year in Review

From The Anglophile's Rest via RSS feed to p. manalo:
Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2006 (not including memes of course). Post the first paragraph/sentence of it in your journal, and that's your "Year in Review".
What follows is not exactly the "first paragraph/sentence" of each post—or even the first post of every month in the case of October and November—but it's probably better this way. Interestingly, the posts seem to be fairly representative of what this blog is all about.

Happy new year!

January: All Will Be Well
I took the photo above at a friend's wedding yesterday. I believe it's a sculpture of Christ after Easter. And then I read Tan's column today. One doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the other. But I'd like to think they do. All will be well.
February: The History of Libraries in the Philippines
Not much has been written or published about the history of libraries in the Philippines. A few articles that are available online are...
March: Blogs as Filipiniana, Part I
In "The Pinoy A-list," I asked, what makes a blog "Pinoy"? Some suggestions have been made through the comments on my post, Random Takes and Ambot Ah! I'd like to suggest the following definition of a "Pinoy" blog based on the definition I use for my "Filipiniana Online" series...
April: The Cure for Information Overload
This is probably the best article I've read on this topic since I started this blog: "The Cure for Information Overload." Just follow the yellow brick road...
May: A-LIEP: DSpace and EPrints
Filipino librarians can definitely take advantage of DSpace and EPrints, but it will take a bit more technical know-how than a blog requires because the necessary software must first be downloaded, configured and installed. This should not be difficult, however, because quite a few institutions are already digitizing their theses collections.
June: I'm leaving on a jet plane...
I would have wanted to make this post a more substantial one, but I just finished packing and I'll be leaving for the airport in a few minutes. I will miss all of you—including those I have yet to meet =)
July: Male Librarians
In "2.0: Where are the Women?" Karen Schneider says that, "we just don't have enough women engaged in key discussions of the day." It is rather ironic that a female-dominated profession has a disproportionate number of males in leadership positions.
August: One More Dancing Librarian
That's Zarah Gagatiga, in black, dancing with her son to "Let's Hear It For the Boy." Zarah was the first librarian I featured on this blog (see "Zarah Gagatiga — Filipino Librarian"). In case you missed it, there's also a video of "Dancing Librarian."
September: Pinoy Top Blogs: August 2006
Basang panaginip held the top spot on Pinoy Top Blogs (PTB) for one whole month on the strength of one post that got Dugg and drew in the kind of non-Filipino readers that very few Pinoy bloggers get. Raincontreras.com traversed a similar path to the 22nd spot, which seems to suggest that sex toys aren't as interesting as vector art. Then again, maybe not having the necessary bandwidth after getting BoingBoing-ed held back its rise.
October: "Sexy" Librarians
As "The Men of TLA: A Calendar" makes clear, they are some of the guys who will "accompany you through 2007 and half of 2008, month by month, in an exploration of the barely-seen side of TLA men." (Via LISNews)
November: LLE 2006: Library Organization and Management
The Librarians' Licensure Examination is fast approaching. If you or someone you know will be taking the exam—or even if you're enrolled in a library management class now—you may want to take a look at the following...
December: LLE 2006: Results
The passing rate has gone up significantly to 37 percent from last year's 31 percent. Below are the list of the top 13 examinees and the roll of successful examinees. If you're one of the new librarians, you may want to check out Job Openings and Career Development =)
