Jon Udell: LibraryLookup: place library order via Amazon page

Jon Udell: LibraryLookup (Build your own bookmarklet)

Jon Udell is brilliant. I've been a fan since the glory days of BYTE where he was a senior editor. Now he's got a bookmarklet that orders library books from Amazon pages. Jon has always written that we've yet to fully leverage the web opportunities that we've had since 1999 or so -- here he again proves his thesis.

(Bookmarklets, are coming into their own, probably because most browsers now finally support a core portion of JavaScript -- the new universal cross-platform language. Brendan Eich (sp?) must be very amused.)
