ALA Annual is going on in Anaheim, CA, and while I’m not there, I’m enjoying all the Twittering, Flickring and blogging. The coolest thing? Seeing this:
Somebody gave happy mutant author and blogger Cory Doctorow a Library Society of the World ribbon to wear! How wicked is that! (I devoured his most recent novel, Little Brother, in two days. I couldn’t put it down. Loved it.)
Also, the Library Society of the World team won the California Dreaming contest at ALA. Congratulations to my LSW friends who participated in the contest. I have a big ol’ grin on my face because of you guys!
(This post is very, very similar to a post by my pal Steve Lawson. I make no excuses or apologies for that.)
Two people have told me that my last couple of posts have come through Google Reader with spam links cluttering the post. I have no idea why this would happen or what to do about it. If anyone else is seeing this, please let me know. And if you know how to solve the problem, please let me know that, too. (I use Bloglines, and my feeds have come through fine for me.)
Update: The spam didn’t show up in Bloglines, but it was there in the posts. Not this post, but the two previous. I could see the spam when I viewed the page source. I deleted it from both posts. How did it get there? I don’t know. How do I keep it from happening again? No clue.
Royce Kitts, the mad scientist of Kansas libraries, has started a new blog for the Kansas Library Association, and he’s looking for contributors. I’ve signed up (although I’m not a KLA member…for now), and if you’re a Kansas librarian, I encourage you to get in touch with Royce and get signed up to blog. Get on the bus!
It’s been almost a month since I last posted here (and I said I intended to post more, ha ha!), but the fact is, I’ve been feeling…well, bored with Libraryland. I still love libraries, I still love being a librarian, but I don’t have anything to say about libraries or librarians.
So, don’t expect to see much posting until I get all fired up about something. In the meantime, if you’d care to, leave me a comment telling me what’s getting you all excited or angry or ecstatic about libraries. Or, hell, leave a comment about what’s getting you all excited or angry or ecstatic about anything.
