"Shuffling" patrons into the library

Cool promotion idea today from the Greensboro Public Library as reported on the Library Stuff blog. Greensboro is giving away an IPod Shuffle to a lucky patron who is the first to check out "the secret book". Better yet, how about pre-loading that Shuffle with library podcasts with info for patrons? Hmm...

Speaking of podcasts, the news today on the marketing blogs is that Apple and Blinkx are making it easier to find podcasts (from MarketingVOX). Blinkx now allows podcasters to sumbit their creations for inclusion in its search index. Hmm again. Could this be a venue for librarians' podcasts?
