Hi. Apparently, due to a screw up by somebody, the very clever “talk” I was to give at ALA didn’t happen. A computer was ordered for the program and didn’t arrive. Suckamo. I’ll save the talk for later and not-so-secretly add this item to the “Reasons Not to Renew Membership After Council Term Expires” list. Hope the rest of you had a lovely time.

Hope all of you at ALA are having a good time. Here is a sneak peek at my “talk” that I am giving in absentia at the Revolting Librarians panel today at ALA.
PUBLIB librarians have compiled a final list of “things making libraries look stupid” which should be read by anyone involved in library policy, as well as library staffers. We just call a lot of these things “good customer service” where I work, when we get it right, that is. [shifty]
