Web browser is the subject of April 3 edition of Tuesday Technology Talks
featuring John LeMansey of Rider University

Mozilla’s popular Firefox Web browser will be the subject of April program in the Tuesday Technology Talks Series on April 3 at 7 p.m., when John LeMansey of Rider University presents a program titled “Extending Firefox.”

“As the popularity of Firefox continues to grow, so, too, do the ways in which it can be expanded,” said Janie Herman, programming coordinator at the library and founder of the Tuesday Technology Talks series. “John will demonstrate for our audience the best 25 free extensions and add-ons for Firefox.

LeMansey, who presented a program on open source software at the library last November, is manager of Instructional Technology at Rider and the technology consultant for the Center for Innovative Instruction. The center is part of the Teaching and Learning Center at Rider.

Hermann noted that Firefox, a freely available web browser that is released under an open source license and can be extended with hundreds of free add-ons, is quickly changing the way people think about and use the Internet.

The monthly sessions of the library’s popular Tuesday Technology Talks series feature demonstrations and discussions of new and emerging technologies and related issues. The series continues on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m., when the library’s technology team hosts an open mic night.

All Princeton Public Library programs are free and open to the public. If programs require registration, preference is given to library cardholders. The physically challenged should contact the library at (609) 924-9529 48 hours before any program with questions about special accommodations.

Zuula in the News!

Just updating in regards to the Tech Talk scheduled for tomorrow night at 7 pm as Zuula has had two significant interviews published this week. Looks like tomorrow's talk will be very interesting based upon reading the interviews.

Pete Bromberg, my colleague from Library Garden, published his interview with Boris on our blog last week. A great set of questions with equally interesting answers.

In addition, US1 Newspaper published an article/interview by Patrick Spring called Carnegie 214 Firm Aims at Google which gives a detailed overview of the company and its founders.

Spread the word to your colleagues and I will see you tomorrow night!
