Michael Czeiszperger’s photograph on the front of the Chapel Hill News explains what I like about the South. We don’t have snow instead we have floating drifting flower petals.

More of Michael’s photographs are on display at the Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro through the end of April and at his Learning to See website.

Carolyn asks nicely:

Do you blog? If yes, then please consider participating in an online survey from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science. The study, Blogger Perceptions on Digital Preservation, is being conducted under the guidance of the Real Paul Jones . The study team is interested in hearing from all bloggers on their perceptions on digital preservation in relation to their own blogging activities, as well as the blogosphere in general. To hear more about this survey and to take it, go here:
http://www.ils.unc.edu/~hcarolyn/blogsurvey/.

From there, you can link out to the web-based survey. The survey will be available from April 25 through May 23, 2007. We believe blogs are valuable records of the human experience. Help to contribute to continued access to these important records by participating in our study. The survey should take between twenty to thirty minutes to complete.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Carolyn Hank, the study Principle [sic] Investigator, at hcarolyn AT email.unc.edu. Thanks!
