Today is World Intellectual Property Day! This year’s theme is “IP & SMEs: Taking your ideas to market”. The Harvey Mercheum is not a business, but the content of this website is still a form of intellectual property.
Today we have another “Richie Rich Sticker” sheet, this time with the “Richie in pain” stickers we saw back in November. It is interesting to note that the “Super Sticky” stickers were part number 4023, and both of these “Richie Rich Sticker” sheets are also 4023. It is also interesting how badly damaged the backing paper is. The bag is intact, so whatever method Laurie Import Ltd. used to repackage the stickers must have been rather rough!
Today also begins Preservation Week, with a theme of “Preserving Community Archives”. Take a moment to review the resources made available by the American Library Association.
Today is Local Comic Shop Day! It moved this year from Saturday to Wednesday, the day new comic books are typically available in stores. If your friendly local comic shop is open, please consider visiting them today!
Every September 25th is National Comic Book Day! I am travelling today, but I hope you get a chance to read a comic book and celebrate a truly American art form!
Today is World Photography Day! While participants are encouraged to share their best photos on social media today, I try to share my best photos year round on this website. I have a number of photography-related projects in the works, I just need time to complete them. Stay tuned!
Today is International Museum Day! The theme for 2020 is “Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion”. The aim is to become a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell. I respect the efforts of ICOM, and encourage all of you to take a moment today to consider the diversity in your life and your community.
Today is World Intellectual Property Day! This year’s theme is an important one, “Innovate for a Green Future”, but no physical events have been organized, virtual activities are being encouraged instead. Today also starts the tenth Preservation Week, with a theme of “Preserving Oral History”. Take a moment to review the resources made available by the American Library Association.
Well, we’re half way through the month of January, and I just found out that it is National Hobby Month! I will have to try to think of a suitable way to celebrate next year. Are you doing anything to celebrate this month? Leave a comment below!
