Okapi Robot Tree was a blog I maintained from time to time for a couple of years that centered primarily on children's literature, with occasional library and social media quandaries. So, not all that different from this blog. It began at the URL http://okapi.me and then for some time could be found at http://kidlit.froztfreez.com. It is now archived on this site via the Okapi Robot Tree tag, since I think some of the posts are decent and I wanted to preserve them.
Text of the Original "About" Page of Okapi Robot Tree
My name is Josh Whiting. I like children’s literature, and I am exploring and writing about it here. I may start writing it myself, too, but I’ll probably keep the specifics of that a secret. I am a digital resources manager and cataloging librarian for a public school district. I am a husband and a father of two little people. I run a school district library web site here. I try to keep my tweets slightly more professional and rational here. I write and tweet totally random stuff here, but mostly about music, art, culture, food, etc., and it’s probably not nearly as weird as I wish or hope it would be.
