Littourati News: Try Reading Littourati on Google Currents

Sporadically, I have looked at ways in which to make Littourati more friendly to phone and tablet users.  Unfortunately, I have not had the time to try to really implement something.

Fortunately, the good folks at Google have helped me and other bloggers out.  Google Currents is a really nice little app for smart phones and tablets.  I was tipped off by one of Littourati's regular readers, and it formats Littourati nicely and in an easy to read format for your portable device.

I'm not really pushing Google Currents nor do I have any type of relationship with them.  I was just impressed on how it worked on my Android smart phone and my IPad tablet, and it is downloadable for both Android and Apple devices. 

If you know of another app for reading Littourati that works well for you, please share it as a comment.


Littourati News: Google Map of Mark Twain

If you read my posts regularly, you know that I am a fan of Mark Twain.  Recently, I was made aware of a Google Map that maps significant events in Mark Twain's life.  The map was created by Terry Ballard for the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford, Connecticut.  Mr. Ballard wrote me about it after visiting Littourati.  Have fun exploring Mark Twain's life interactively!

Littourati News: Try Out Pinwheel!

In December, a person who stumbled onto Littourati contacted me to ask if I would be willing to become an alpha tester for a new website.  The concept was interesting - the site was founded by a team led by Caterina Fake, who had previously founded Flickr - and it allows you to leave a note about places on Google maps.  You can also post photos.  The site, called Pinwheel, is now online to view and you can find it at  You can sign up to be a beta user if you want.

I'm seeking ways to integrate Pinwheel with some of what I do on Littourati.  I've a great time using the site in the little time that I've had to use it.  Try it out!
