Ok, so it sounds like we're looking to move to thelsw.org - 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 http://friendfeed.com/lsw...
I know that some of you LSWers were around during my library's flood in 2009 and that a number of you pitched in to contribute to the recovery efforts. I wanted you all to know that this didn't go unnoticed and that LSW has been immortalized accordingly.
Without Friendfeed,and the LSW there is No @tisfortraining and my life would be poorer for it. I would not have encountered amazing folks in the computer and real life and my life would not be as rich and full of fun. I am shedding my tears now so that I don't break down on April 9th. This is my second family. My Bar. My Tribal Gathering Place.

Our library is hiring a Librarian for Collection Development & Evaluation. See the position posting at https://jobs.lmu.edu/posting.... I am on the search committee and am eager to answer any questions you may have.
I am supposed to be "crafting a summary" of my accomplishments over the past 3-4 years for work. So let's all do it! What awesome things have you done, big or small, revolutionary or just a little bit different?
I would love to see some LSW faces at this summer's Institute for Research Design in Librarianship. Consider submitting a proposal so you can hang out with me for two weeks and learn how to construct a research project? http://irdlonline.org
I will be moving on from my current position after 7.5 years to the Singapore Management University (SMU) as Library Analytics Manager in late Feb. Many exciting plans in store at my new University but currently trying not to think about it too much and enjoy my long vacation.
And I am back home, or rather back at work. I am sorry I slept too late to see Galadriel this morning but also grateful for the sleep. I-88 in Illinois was still a bit sketchy (but then anything called the Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway has to be, right?), but I-80 was clear sailing. 3 hours till I get to see my little boy.
