LibraryLookup published

My article on LibraryLookup has been published in the October 2005 issue of Technology First, a tech newsletter for the Dayton area. (I'm on p. 8-9). (The print article's content ties in with this blog post)

The sixty-second version: LibraryLookup lets you query your library's catalog directly from a page of a book vendor like Amazon, looking up that particular book for you automatically with just one click. You can get it installed in your browser in, oh, about five seconds. It's really cool, not just for helping you find books, but also as an example of clever and sneaky use of JavaScript.
