What’s happening January 5, 2010:

Good news from the Toronto Public Libraries. All of their 99 branches are now offering free Wi-Fi. The libraries also plan on offering more e-content and they want you to follow them on Twitter.

If reading another decade defining news item will make you barf, get a bucket ready for this chart thing that breaks a dozen categories into graphics that define each year.[rssbreak]
