Library 2.0 / Library 360 / Library 3-D
Some time soon I plan to jump into the Library 2.0 / Web 2.0 fray (I have no idea what it means, but I’m for it! I want my Library 2.0!), but in the meantime, I’m digging TangognaT’s snarky post…
I prefer to stay on the fence and enjoy both sides. Can’t live without my daily dose of snark!
Ah, I’m a little snarky, but more due to my hesitation about jargon than anything else. I do think that many of the “Library 2.0” projects are quite nifty.
I understand, tagognat; I really do love all the energy behind Library 2.0, but it helps not to take it all too seriously. Thanks for your fun post. (And I prefer sweater vests to cardigans, so maybe I should get a cuirass rather than the Spartan armor.)
Thanks for the kind words and for pointing folks to my blog! I’ll get busy writing those interesting posts about running for council.
[…] UPDATE: I just ran across Rachel Singer Gordon’s article on “The Bridge Generation” in LJ (thanks, Meredith!). Gen X, we need you! […]
