RT @MotherJones: The 8 Best Lines From Ginsburg's Dissent on the Hobby Lobby Contraception Decision http://www.motherjones.com/politic...
The “Kern Your Enthusiasm” series features posts by @MatthewBattles, @publichistorian, @wynkenhimself, & @whitneytrettien. All good folk.
Really looking forward to @HILOBROW’s series of blog posts about typefaces starting in August (I wrote one): http://hilobrow.com/2014...
My last tweet was completely ungrammatical. I blame Twitter’s editorial staff for letting that slip past.
Nothing tells me how provincial I am by how much I adore #THATCamp tweets in other languages than English.
RT @warnick: In almost any city in America, you can find a free, quiet place to work, complete with restrooms and wifi. Public libraries are amazing.
RT @academicdave: @amandafrench but we also need a random metric to decide if said random problem and random solution worked
But maybe we could agree to enact the random person's solution and see if that works. One free random policy change per year. Boom.
Of course, that wouldn't eliminate the arguments over *which* policies would fix the random person's problem.
RT @DonnaLanclos: @amandafrench I'll bet if we fix the biggest problem of 5 random people we hit a huge chunk of our common problems. :)
And then just wait for the spillover benefits.
I'm getting tired of data. Perhaps we should take one random person and make policy changes that demonstrably fix her/his biggest problem.
.@rivenhomewood Argh. Yes. Silly error on my part. I was actually psyched, though, that MLA was getting so involved ...
Correction: @ALA_ACRL wants comments from MLA members on *its* information literacy document. My bad. Still: http://news.commons.mla.org/2014...
And hey, nonlibrarians, “information literacy” amounts to “research skills.” Google, Wikipedia, books, articles, etc: http://news.commons.mla.org/2014...

Hey, librarians. The MLA would love your feedback on its information literacy document: http://t.co/Y9kS35pg5i - Amanda

In a fit of insouciance I registered the domain “http://t.co/u0XcAROQL7” & it’s about to expire. Anyone want? :)
. @librarythingtim @billba Brilliant. Some grad student should totally get a LibraryThing Research Fellowship.

RT @YAppelbaum: In 2009, Elsevier went to court to keep its subscription prices confidential. Now, we know why. Look at the spread: https://twitter.com/YAppelb...
