Reference Geeks Rejoice: The World Almanac and Book of Facts Now Has Its Own Blog

New, The World Almanac Now Has Its Own Blog

Reference geeks rejoice: The World Almanac and Book of Facts is now blogging! Cool!!!

From the site:

This blog is compiled by the same group of people who research, write, edit, fact-check, and re-fact-check the print version of The World Almanac and Book of Facts, year in and year out. Our goal here is to expand on the millions of essential facts included in The World Almanac, focusing on new or surprising facts about major topics covered in our books; deeper explanations of underreported data currently in the news; and offbeat information and Internet links about a wider range of topics than we could possibly cover in print. Our efforts will be in keeping with the hallmarks of The World Almanac itself--an American institution that millions of people have turned to for trusted facts for nearly 140 years, and the best-selling U.S. reference book of all time.

As reports continue to emerge of apparent corporate paralysis in the face of cyber security threats, Tim Buckley Owen wonders whether the emphasis hasn't swung too far in that direction, and sees opportunities for information professionals in helping to strike a balance between security in the cloud and effective data analysis for competitive advantage.

    Thursday, 24th July 2014

    When companies begin to take their first tentative steps with collaboration a first thought is often - what tool shall we use to facilitate collaboration within our organisation?
