i ask you, can anyone look at that interface and not get a great big goofy grin on their face?

That's very clever indeed. You know, if LT has a fairly robust implementation of style sheets, it would be very simple to allow users to create custom "skins" or alternate style sheets for their own catalogs, a la the CSS Zen Garden. I bet a lot of people would take that opportunity and run with it.

Very cute . . . The interface appears to be in English, but the help in Norwegian? Odd. That said, although it's a bit slow, the interface is, in addition to being cuter than my local library's opac, much more intuitive.

RJO. That's true. Maybe profiles would be a better place for it. But I'm wary of the MySpace phenomenon--crap design. Then again, MySpace is also phenomenally successful.

In fact the help function and a lot of the www-links are reminiscents of the original interface, called Chatman, designed in Denmark a couple of years ago.

It's a interface specially designed for children and it's actually in use at many Danish Libraries.
