Hi. Okay so welcome to librarian.net at ibiblio!
the reason this is not already at the new servers may be partly my fault. In any case, I said “come hell or high water” so I figured I’d add some content here. It’s a funny thing about that New York Times article. They included the text of my signs, not the signs themselves, and they cited my weblog, and not my name. Weirder still is they changed where I had written “National Security” and hyphenated it? I mean I agree that any publicity is good publicity, but it was just so weird.
PATRIOT Watch: Karen Schneider has told me that this is a week for rejoicing. According to her, all state library associations have now passed resolutions against the PATRIOT Act. You wouldn’t know it by looking at ALAs website, color me surprised. Oh wait, here’s the link. How could I have missed that?
The “stack of random literature” that comes with the Librarian Action Figure includes a book on Bulgarian Flan, and the Devil’s Dictionary. [thanks jen]
Georgia’s only accredited library school may be closing. The Black Caucus of the ALA is starting a letter writing campaign [thanks bill] Laura Bush, slightly unclear on how prescription medicine works in this country. A nice idea, stupidly put.
Hi. So I guess this site was mentioned in the New York Times magazine [in a sidebar that is not online and so I haven’t even seen it yet] during the two-day window when I am switching to a new web host. The only time this site has ever switched to a new web host. Hello, I am Jessamyn West and this is my supreme being’s idea of irony. Updates resume tomorrow, come hell or high water.
Hi. If you can read this, then my DNS has propogated and I am now on the ibiblio servers instead of the eskimo.com servers. And I am running Movable Type instead of coding and uploading by hand. I am aware that some things are not yet working. This week I aim to get archiving and all the templates straight so that Oct 1 begins an “all MT all the time” world here for me. Send major complaints to the usual place. Let me know if stuff is broken. Tips and advice are also welcome, I’m pretty new to this CMS stuff.
Hi. OCLC responded to my email to them. They copied and pasted their press release into an email. Classy.
PATRIOT Watch: Send a fax to urge your senator to fix the PATRIOT Act.
PATRIOT Watch: The Maine Civil Liberties Union is sponsoring an all-day seminar on the USAPA. If you are in the area, please stop by. [ thanks aaron ]
Librarian Dolls Defend The Nation! An interesting article I am cited in, over at chicklit.
