Richard Kowalski's wiki page!

This is my first wiki page!  I am excited to use this new web technology, and I hope others join in as well. 

About Me:

I am a librarian who has just moved to Takoma Park from the usually cold and snowy city of Buffalo, New York.  I look forward to the warmer weather here, and I hope to soon become a librarian in the DC area.  In the meantime, I am catching up on the new web trends... its amazing how fast the web changes! 

I am also interested in reading science fiction when I have the time.  Science fiction is a great genre for those who love to dream about fascinating futures and strange technologies.  And while sci-fi stories may take place in imaginary worlds, these worlds often have a lot in common with our own. Among my favorites stories are Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card, and A Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley.  A newer sci-fi book that I loved was Feed, by M.T. Anderson. 

Oh yeah, and I like Dune as well!  I am now currently reading Children of Dune, which is book three of Frank Herbert's Dune series. 

My other hobbies include drumming.  I was a drummer in two bands back in Buffalo, NY.  I hope to join a band again within the next year... music is certainly a love of mine.

I will be updating this page as often as possible.  One of my goals is to make a page that explains how to use [RSS feeds].
