We’re debuting a new series this month: a roundup inspired by our friends at Hack Library School! Each month, the LITA bloggers will share selected library tech links, resources, and ideas that resonated with us. Enjoy – and don’t hesitate to tell us what piqued your interest recently in the comments section!

    So I missed this boat on this round-up! Here are a couple of contributions.

    I’m just finishing up Jennifer Golbeck’s awesome Usable Security MOOC via Coursera, and Dr. Golbeck demonstrated a feature called “Take This Lollipop” – give this site access to your Facebook and it will plug your data into a creepy virtual stalker video. Hyperbolic reminder about how much information we share willy-nilly on the web and the risks associated with that oversharing. URL: . Learn more:

    Golbeck also talked about an amazing article on usable, secure passwords that transformed my understanding of password security. Apparently “fluffyispuffy” is MORE secure than “J4fS<2”! Who would have thought it. Article:
