Even better she's a Mover & Shaker, and well, so am I.

Librarians aren't all old farts, ya know.

And a piece of art she made (for one of judith's 20things swaps) was in ReadyMade magazine this month. Jessamyn is everywhere!

Thanks for that - what a great website that is for bookworms like me. It's weird and kinda sad that I only knew of jessamyn's blog via a Bingo MeTa post referring to an article in Wired. What's the equivalent in English of "santos de casa não fazem milagres" - "If you live with a saint, you don't notice his miracles"? No man is a hero to his valet?

We really should have a thread of our favourite members' weblogs. Honestly.

Apologies to jessamyn for misspelling her name in the post.

Mentioned, as is MeFi's own Zeldman.

I wish he would come back. I remember him posting something once about how the members here scared him. Heh.

It was intimidate, not scare. Funny thread.

Oops. Sorry.

Hi. Don't forget that I'll be on NPR sometime next week talking [within the strict confines of my NDA] about being a scorer for the Califorinia Achievement Tests. And my article about being a librarian at Burning Man [tax write-off, baby!] is in American Libraries next month.

Then I will fade once again into rural obscurity. I'm still not sure how I wound up in Wired, it's really strange. Thanks for the mad props, y'all.
