From the Library: Salut, M Verne!

Radio Riel marks the death of Jules Verne on this day in 1905 with a Steam­punk pro­gram (with a lit­tle Edith Piaf thrown in just for some Fran­coph­o­ne vari­ety). Today is also Ada Lovelace Day, an inter­na­tion­al day of blog­ging to draw atten­tion to women excelling in tech­nol­o­gy. And so I ded­i­cate our pro­gram to the many women of Sec­ond Life who are cre­at­ing new worlds and new visions through tech­nol­o­gy.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gram was pro­duced by Otenth Pader­born.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.
