I thought I'd do some writing or watch movies today but basically I've stared out the window and watched scenery go by for 12 hours.

Hanging out with Barbara Fister, Derrick, and Amy = absolute highlights of my conference. It's good t remember that y'all are flesh and blood people once in a while.
They're only flesh and blood once in a while? Creepy! - DJF from Android
As far as I can tell, that's true. I have not observed them being flesh and blood all of the time. - lris
I talked with Barbara and Derrick but didn't see Iris or Amy. :( :( - Marie from iPhone
I didn't see any of yall'z but i have kennel cough/conference crud/laryngitis so it's probably just as well - LibrarianOnTheLoose

Amtrak staff are so nice compared to the barely concealed contempt of airline workers. This is a damn civilized way of travel.

Happy news for a Friday - I'm taking a leave of absence from my job and spending next year as a Fellow in the Library Innovation Lab and Affliliate of the Berkman Center at Harvard. Gonna be working on free law and open information stuff. I'm pretty excited (and terrified.)

Thanks all! I'm still kind of in shock even though I've kniwn for about a month now. I applied for the Berkman fellowship back in December, heard nothing until I got the call saying "you're in" I feel very fortunate. Plus, as I said to sglassme, I bet they got them some real fancy ass cheese at Harvard! - Sarah G.
Man, you did keep a secret for a long time. I thought it was only a couple of days. Who would have thunk it? - sglassme
What a great opportunity! Congratulations! - Jenny H. from Android
I am seriously bummed that FF won't be around so that we can hear all about it. dammit. - jambina from iPhone

I'll say it here without reference to any person known or unknown: As far as I know, at least in the U.S., there is no law requiring you to invite a jerk to speak or consult, or to attend a session at which a jerk is speaking. Nor, I believe, can you be sued for believing somebody is a jerk.

Ah, yes: Saint Biography, the patron saint of high school research papers.
(submitted to - Catherine Pellegrino
"Saint Biography, or Hagi O'Graphy as she was known before canonisation, was a contemporary of Saint S'preserveus and the instructor of SS Ibid and Opsit." - Pete's Got To Go
I also sent this to our cataloger. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
I'm told Haydn was generally a pretty decent dude as composers go, but this is a tad extreme. - RepoRat
The irony here is that our collection may actually be stronger in biographies of saints than in biographies of composers. So it may actually be a reasonable autosuggest, given the corpus of metadata it's working from. - Catherine Pellegrino
I will post it as soon as I get back to the computer that knows my Tumblr password. :) - laura x
Finalized, printed HUNDREDS of pages, and made them into neat little packets for our ACRL workshop participants today.

I will be doing that after the workshop. :) - lris
As this may be my final posting on this group before FF goes away, let it be an obnoxious one:
In the almost 15 years since public intellectual, librarian and philosopher Michael Gorman published “Our Enduring Values,” there has been a sea change in the way much of the world thinks about and uses libraries. Young librarians and seasoned LIS professionals alike are experiencing increasing pressure to adjust to new economic, societal and technological demands amidst the often dire rhetoric currently surrounding the future of our institutions. In his stirring new manifesto “Our Enduring Values Revisited: Librarianship in an Ever-Changing World,” published by ALA Editions, Gorman addresses head on the “existential panic” among library professionals caused by the radical shift in how libraries are viewed. He reconnects readers with the core values that continue to inspire generations of library professionals and scholars—while making the case that these values are doubly crucial to hold on to in the brave new shifting world of librarianship. - Andy
"Destined to become another classic of library literature" - Andy
sigh. Blog people. - ellbeecee
Am I supposed to be experiencing existential panic? Oops, must have missed that memo. - Catherine Pellegrino
I'm too busy for existential panic. Can I put it on my calendar for this summer? - ellbeecee
It'll have to wait until I'm done with my instruction for the semester, have finished chairing this super-stupid committee I'm on, and someone else has taken over running the college's first-year seminar, that's for sure. - Catherine Pellegrino
what existential panic? where? - maʀtha
Somewhere there's a committee trying to determine the perfect metrics to measure appropriate levels of existential panic in order for librarians to qualify for promotion. - Galadriel C. from Android
My existential panic has nothing to do with libraries. - Katy S
Thank god he realized that "hysterical panic" would be offensive. - Meg VMeg
I'm always impressed by "public intellectuals." For a very special meaning of impressed, that is. (Yes, I coauthored a book with Gorman. No, I don't regret it. No, I'd almost certainly never do it again--and as a retired library person, I'm not likely to be issuing manifestos for people actually still doing this stuff.) - walt crawford
Can it be a manifesto if it's intended to soothe? - Meg VMeg
I had the impression that the Cluetrain Manifesto was intended to soothe the Digerati and assure them they really were superior to the rest of us plebes, but that may be snarky. - walt crawford
what LBC and Catherine said. can we schedule the existential panic for this summer? say around June 27 or so? - ~Courtney F
I'll put a reminder on my calendar and email you all a week in advance, just to make sure the time still works for all of us. - ellbeecee
should i read this book? - kendrak

BE STILL MY BEATING HEART. the next mind-bending chapter is coming! | The X-Files on Fox
"Thirteen years after the original series run, FOX has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully." - laura x from Bookmarklet

Ok, so it sounds like we're looking to move to - trying out Discourse and Commons in a Box. we should make it worth the admin's time and effort of trying them out. I nominate Blake as the main back-end orchestrator for these two instances (his subdomain recommendation sounds good, too). --- Forked from
I assume that everyone clicking like is a yea. Do we have any nays? Any discussion? - maʀtha
Just do it, yo. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, let's try them. The sooner we try the sooner we know if one or the other will work for us. - lris
Let's get her done. - laura x from iPhone
Yep, let's go! - Galadriel C. from Android
go team - maʀtha
i can probably lend a hand. not clear how at the moment, but my life is stuck inside systems all day, so there's probably some useful skill i can contribute. - henry
Uh... hullo, Blake? What say you? - Aaron the Librarian
I have been summoned by Twitter... so my professional opinion would be we should put you people on your own server (cloud instance, VPS, droplet, call it whatever you want). We could run Discourse and Commons in a Box on the same thing, maybe each on a subdomain, then maybe choose one? I'd like to stay at SoftLayer if I'm doing the server.
Cheapest thing they have is $27/month. We could maybe run it on the one of the super cheap things at AWS or one of the other places, but my GUESS would be it'll be slow. (That guess could be wrong) [sorry, edited, that's $27.60 not $35) - Blake
Can someone email me and let me know? - Blake
What's the next cheapest? - Meg VMeg
digitalocean, aws, linode all probably have things that'll be cheaper by something significant. - Blake
Hmmmm...maybe I mean, what's faster? One level faster/expensiver? - Meg VMeg
Can we set up a PayPal donate thingy on the site? I'd be happy to donate annually. - Stephen Francoeur
I vote that we try out both things for...2 months. 2 months? And that we go for hosting that will be fast enough not to hate it? But maybe cheapest is fine? That would cost $100-150 to do both for 2 months, is that right? - Meg VMeg
I'm pretending to be decisive, though, I haven't really thought any of this through. - Meg VMeg
I like a two month trial on whatever Blake thinks word work best. That amount divided by a bunch of us should be affordable even for me. - laura x from iPhone
Yes. That. He seemed to be hinting that it would be too slow on the cheapest. - Meg VMeg
I should do research and have opinions, but I am tired and overwhelmed by work + kid, so my opinion is "whatever Blake says is good." - laura x from iPhone
$27/mo is $331/yr which doesn't seem unreasonable if there is a bunch of us chipping in. - Zamms
Is there an option to grab an lsw on ff archive to start off each instance? - Aaron the Librarian from Android
I'm happy to throw money at things too! Has anyone pulled the lsw room yet? Thought I'd heard some rumors of it - Hedgehog
happy to send $ - maʀtha
^ ^ - YvonneM
^^^ yes me, too; I'm not here as much as I used to be or as much as I'd like, but I still want to be able to reach out and hug all of you at once when I need to... - John: Thread Killer
I can go for that, sure. As for LSW room, I tried to turn the archiving script loose on it but it failed. Will try again tonight. - RepoRat
So are we agreed that there will be an instance of Discourse and of Commons in a Box on the site? Is that definitely where we'll be doing this? It's what makes sense to me, but I'm not the one who owns the domain or is an admin on the site, let alone someone with the skills to install the two services. - Stephen Francoeur
Blake hosts the site and owns the domain (I think)--I'm an admin from way back in the day and would be totally down with using it for this. - laura x
Laura, just double checked on You're right: Blake does own the domain. - Stephen Francoeur
Any other admins besides Blake & Laura? - Zamms
I'd be happy to be one, though I'm not one currently. - Meg VMeg from Android
Aaron, Blake, Rothman, Abigail, Iris, Joe, Kathryn, Laura H., Martha, RR, and Lawson are all currently admins at the old site. It was set up a LOOOOOONG time ago. - laura x
wow, okay. I don't even remember my username! - RepoRat
Huh, I guess I do remember my admin pwd there... Wooo! *goes and changes really insecure pwd* [eta: jut forum admin -- not admin for the underlying lishost account] - Aaron the Librarian
I can send deets to anyone who needs them tomorrow--too hard to do from my phone. - laura x from iPhone
me? I'm all for it - maʀtha
Action itm: recommendation in new thread here: - Aaron the Librarian
Kathryn as in me?? Cooool! - Kathryn is a free elf
Yup, you. - laura x

"The following recipe takes advantage of zucchini’s aforementioned neutral flavor, plus its soft texture, to create nicely dense, dark-chocolate bread. Semisweet chips create soft little pools of fudge that complement the bread’s nicely moist texture very well, thank you. Are you ready to back off dissing your zukes, and put them to tasty use? Try our Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread." - John (bird whisperer) from Bookmarklet
Oh man, I still haven't made some chocolate zucchini bread! Stupid fires distracting me! Maybe I can make some if I get back early enough on Sunday. Sounds so good. - Jenny H.
I think they're unfair to zucchini, but I want to try this. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm making this in muffin format in a couple of weeks for my vacation. Though I'm subbing fig pieces for the chocolate chips. (and egg whites for the whole eggs, and apple sauce for the oil, and...I'm just a giant wet blanket) - Hookuh Tinypants
I made this over the weekend, and it was awesome. - John (bird whisperer)
Woot! - Derrick
I'm thinking of making this and taking it in to the library. What's the texture like? Bread or does it lean towards cake? - Derrick
OMG there's chocolate zucchini bread??? - Steve C, Team Marina
The texture is more like cake than bread. - John (bird whisperer)
WELP. - Derrick
If I made this my son would be eating zucchini! - Melly
I have no idea what Dutch cocoa is. Or all-purpose flour. To Google I go! - Melly
See, it's healthy... it's got vegetables! ;-) - John (bird whisperer)
Dutch cocoa is cocoa that doesn't have extra sugar. All-purpose flour is regular white flour (not whole-grain, not bread flour, etc.). - John (bird whisperer)
I'm guessing it is plain flour since you have to add baking soda & powder. Which means I should be able to use self-raising flour instead? - Melly
The generic cocoa powder I have on my baking shelf says "pure cocoa powder" in the ingredients, that's it. So I'm guessing that means no extra sugar. - Melly
Dutch processed cocoa should have a neutral Ph (it has been processed with an alkaline to take away some of the acidity.) It makes a difference depending on the leavening you're using (baking powder vs. baking soda.) Most baking cocoa you'd find at the store is dutch processed, at least it is here. Both natural, and Dutch processed, should have no sugar. - Jennifer Dittrich
I just put zucchini on the shopping list for next week. - Melly
I knew someone here would come up with a more sophisticated answer than mine. - John (bird whisperer)
Heh. I just have to have the low-acid stuff. I love chocolate too much not to have it :D - Jennifer Dittrich
I've made this recipe a few times, and it's been awesome each time. :-D I'll be making it again in a couple weeks. - John (bird whisperer)
i do have a bunch of grated zucchini in the freezer... - holly #ravingfangirl
Does the finished product freeze well? I was thinking I could slice some and put it in zip-lock bags in the freezer for Josiah's lunch box. And to stop me eating it all at once. - Melly
I don't know. I haven't tried freezing it. - John (bird whisperer)
Yes it does. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
:oD - Melly
If I can get through the next hour without passing out, I'm making this tonight! - Melly
I've made this for every post-concert reception, and it always disappears. - John (bird whisperer)
