Library Geeks 002a+b - Post-Social (updated)
Jessamyn West joins Ross and I^Hme to discuss communities virtual and real, and how her work as a librarian intersects with each; Ross also provides an update on the umlaut.
We upgraded our tools some so the sound should be better and files smaller. But, it went over an hour, so it's split into two files, "a" and "b". Arbitrarily complex publication patterns are the spice of life!
[Updated.] Odeo was never the host of Library Geeks. Library Geeks has always been hosted at geeks.onebiglibrary.net. And the feed has always been geeks.onebiglibrary.net/feed.xml. And the link to the feed at the bottom left of this page? It has always been thus. As also with the iTunes Music Store subscription link.
Quick notes from the show:
- Jessamyn's best-known sites are at jessamyn.info | jessamyn.com and librarian.net. Her recent SAA talk slides are online too. She also has a terrific page devoted to Donald Barthelme which she shyly avoided mentioning; learn more about Richard Brautigan at the Brautigan Bibliography and Archive.
- Visit Metafilter, and look for AskMeFi and the FAQ
- Ross's blog-savvy colleague from GT blogs at The Ubiquitous Librarian.
If you do call in with comments, don't be put off by the odd message (it won't be my voice!) - go ahead and tell us your name, where you're from, and what you have to say. We reserve the right to choose to play anything you say can on an upcoming episode, but even if we don't, we'll be sure to listen.
