Delicious Monster Librarian 2.0 at Mac World

Mac World post #3 - I was urged to check out Delicious Monster at Mac World. It organizes not just books (like LibraryThing) but also all sorts of other things like CDs, games, garage tools. Catalog your books, movies, music, software, toys, tools, electronics, & video games. Hold a book or other item's barcode to your computer's webcam to identify it on It reads the UPC and downloads that item’s cover and all pertinent information about it, and displays all my stuff on photorealistic shelves. According to one of the demonstrators, classroom teachers like it for managing their classroom library collection (not for real libraries).

Another cool tool that is on the Delicious library 2 website at the very bottom is a button named "Blog us" -- just click and you get your blog post screen with the title already listed as "Delicious Library 2" -- how convenient and clever! Good work, Monster CEO Wil Shipley.
