MetaFilter: Going where the users are

My article on MetaFilter, the community website that I moderate, is now up on the Library Journal website. Here’s the post on MetaFilter about it. I’m not the only liblogger who has written for them lately; Dorothea discusses being taken aback by the draconian terms of their author contract and has advice for potential LJ writers about how to negotiate the best deal to the rights of their own articles.

Movers, Shakers, Candlestick Makers (also bloggers)

Another round of Movers and Shakers with more than a few familiar faces and some people I’ve now said “Oh man, I have to meet that person.” Congratulations to Vermonter Trina Magi and new settler Meredith Farkas, JohnBloggers Blyberg (on the “to meet” list) and Hubbard (who I had lunch with once back in 2001 and should do so again) and popblogger Sophi Brookover along with PLA blogger Beth Gallaway. Also selected were Jill Stover from the Library Marketing blog, Matt Gullett (updated link) who writes for the Library Journal Tech blog among a zillion other places, Alycia Sellie Madison ZineFest cofounder, and Sarah Johnson from Beyond the Job. Nice job everyone!
