(obscurely positioned where most do not see it:   )

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Here's a nice thing. 1999

Ten Graces for New Librarians by the lovely Grace Anne DeCandido. Visit the rest of her site too. Her home page has a really nice picture of her and book list is great!

I drink Library Juice. 1999

From the current issue:

Hennepin County Library has put online "a handy reference guide to authors and genres" with the theme If you like...

From Librarian-Troublemaker (and I mean that in a good way) Sandy Berman comes some appropriate Banned Books Week reading "Three Kinds of Censorship that Librarians (Mostly) Don't Talk About". [Appears to be gone from the web; not in Internet Archive as of May 2004]

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
