Two more quick Gorman sightings: Michael from TTW assures Mr Gorman he is not “thin skinned” and Jane’s post about leadership and how she thinks Michael Gorman possibly wasn’t exhibiting enough of it.
Does the latest Library Journal editorial regarding the Gorman v Bloggers melee just read like so much celebrity gossip? It mentions that half the emails he received were pseudonymous. I agree that it’s often a good idea to send both critique and compliments under your own name. However, let’s just remember that while Michael Gorman’s views may not “represent the official positions of either ALA or California State University Fresno” as LJ patronizingly reminds us, he’ll still be reading our responses as a person who occupies both of those roles. The Free Range Librarian is also unimpressed.
