And now for some fun – with pirate hats

9 Sep

Yesterday Mal Booth got a little restless up at the UTS library. He chatted to some colleagues. He decided to do something silly just because he could.¬†Discussions with his staff and his Twitter group led to a challenge for next Wednesday 15 Sept. We’re spreading the challenge through social media and seeing how it goes. For those of you who are asking, the reason we are doing this is #noparticularreason¬†The reason it’s in a library is because some of us are librarians or work in libraries. It’s really simple and it is about having fun : – )

Wear a pirate hat next Wednesday 15 Sept in a library.

Then share your frivolity, silliness, playfullness with the world, by exploring social media and using the tag #piratehatsWednesday

You may want to put up a blog post or make a statement on Twitter/Facebook/Myspace

You may choose to add a photo of your or other’s hats to the Flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/1472829@N25/ or get carried away and do a Youtube video or a quick video snapshot on http://12seconds.tv/

You might get inspired and bake pirate hat goodies (all contributions for tasting can be sent to Mal Booth, UTS, Sydney)

Instructions on how to make pirate hats can be found here and here and here

This activity already has celebrity engagement (although we’re happy to hear about more)
