WuFoo fun!

June 11, 2007

Just finished playing with a nifty little application that helps you create online forms, Wufoo!  This is a really easy to use tool for putting together forms in different formats such as single line text, multiple choice, checkboxes, drop down menus, etc. Free registration allows you to create up to three forms for 100 user/participant entries per month and to receive up to three reports for your collected data.  Payed upgrades give you access to more options. 

So, check WooFoo next time you plan to build a survey, put together a workshop registration form, a wedding invitation, or even an inventory of your music or DVD collection!

A new twist on some old art.

June 4, 2007

Here’s a little video making the rounds that is well worth three minutes of your time. What a great new way to display some very old (or should I say classic?) paintings!

Of course we also have a fantastic collection of art books if you’d like to learn a little more about some of the intriguing faces in the video.
