Library Geeks 003 - The Thing You Do
Abby Blachly and Tim Spalding of LibraryThing joined me last week for Library Geeks episode 003 - The Thing You Do. The goal was to have it posted in time to sync with LibraryThing's first birthday, but, better late than never. Happy birthday LibraryThing!
Our conversation covered a lot of ground, from privacy, tagging, and bookkeeping to Cutter codes and, yes, even marshmallows. Even edited down some, it's well over an hour, but I hope you'll agree that their project and what they have to say about it is so compelling that it's worth the extra time.
Unfortunately the first thirty minutes of the audio carry a lot of extra noise. It seems a poltergeek visited us, pounding on a phantom keyboard and leaving a steady stream of noise ("ambient annoyability"?). I'm sorry about this - hopefully you'll find it bearable, and, I promise, poltergeek goes away around the thirty minute mark.
