re: transparency

Just a “how to do it” note at the recent departure of Chris from LibraryThing. Chris posts to his blog, a little unhappy. Tim posts to the LT blog, quite professional. Space is available at LibraryThing for leaving messages about it all. Chris, you put in a lot of hard work and your dedication and skills will be missed. Tim, way to be a classy guy about it. This is a great example of how you don’t need to send out dorky “we are really looking forward to these new opportunities” press releases when something bad happens. I welcome this aspect of transparency that comes along with our new 2.0-ish world.

    And here I was hoping for the email informing me that a memo was forthcoming.

    Here’s one of those places where I’m pretty sure Tim an I both agree: I had a need to vent some painful feelings, I used my blog as many people do, and I felt better.

    For Tim, the show must go on. He’s got his hands full over there, and he knows that if he ever needs me for anything (even his Great One, milk/sugar) I’ll be there in a second.

    Thanks for the kind words. And you’re quite welcome, I loved giving you my best. Now, most importantly, everyone please continue to support LT! No other bibliophile sites can even come close to touching it, and it’s all because of YOU!
