A Word of Difference

Banned Books Week 2015If you're just joining us, we're in the middle of Banned Books Week 2015, the week that librarians and booksellers set aside every year to promote the benefits of free and open access to information and underscore the dangers of censorship.  Banned Books Week honors a right we never, ever want to lose-- our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom to read.  This year, Banned Books Week is focusing on one of the most-frequently challenged categories of literature: young adult books.

Better Than Google

Streaming video is content sent in compressed form over the Internet and displayed by the viewer in real time. With streaming video or streaming media, a Web user does not have to wait to download a file to play it. Instead, the media is sent in a continuous stream of data and is played as it arrives. This rather dry definition of streaming video does not begin to describe the wonders of Access Video on Demand.
