I use the "Ian knot" to tie my laces so I'm already ahead anyways as far as shoes go. (Yes, they're slower than slip ons, but I'm counting all the time they save me every day.) - Andrew C (✔) from Android

Seems like we haven't done a random poll in a while, so. Author, artist, musician, or other creator that you like but someone important in your life can't stand?
Kate Rusby. Don't ask me why, but the huz just cannot with her. Whereas he is forbidden from playing Led Zep in my presence because NOPE. - RepoRat
is it because led zeppelin sings about hobbits and shit? - kendrak
I just can't stand 'em, no matter what they're screaming about. - RepoRat
Although I don't listen to his ditties much anymore either, I'm afraid it's Johann Sebastian Bach; my wife finds him far too repetitive. - Walt Crawford
my husband hates jazz. all jazz. even jazz influences in other genres. except the occasional band that he doesn't believe is jazz no matter how many times i insist on it. meanwhile half my cd collection is jazz. good thing we mostly overlap-or-are-indifferent otherwise. - Marianne
I am kinda the jazz hater in my relationships. To be fair, I don't hate ALL jazz, just the experimental/freeform/super noodle-y stuff. So basically the stuff people who love jazz often love the most. - kaijsa
My mother hates Tori Amos. In better news, though, I seem to be converting Peter into a Dylan fan. - laura x
Uck, Tori Amos. Maybe I'm just a hater in general. A long-term bf of mine from my 20s was into Primus. I was like, NOPE. - kaijsa
i don't think there's anything musically, though i hate books and he's an avid reader. he also hates soccer. - kendrak
I get a lot of ribbing at home about my enjoyment of "middle aged/older women solving murders" television (Murder She Wrote, Agatha Christie, Rosemary and Thyme, etc) but he'll sit through them. - Hedgehog
heeeeeeeeey Rosemary and Thyme is awesome. - RepoRat
I love a lady sleuth myself. - kaijsa
My guy digs Tom Waits like whoa but all I hear is screeching and moaning. - Marie
I can't think of anything of mine that C truly can't stand, but he can listen to his Jethro Tull SOMEPLACE ELSE DEAR GOD. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
You all can have the lady sleuth party and I will have the Jethro Tull/Tom Waits/Led Zeppelin party. On vinyl. - laura x from iPhone
Zamms
I HAVE NEWS.
DO YOU? - RepoRat
I DO! - Zamms
is it the news i think it is? - kendrak
are you becoming president?? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Kendra: It's not the news you think it is. Andrew: No, no, no, they're not THAT crazy! - Zamms
GOOD LORD LEAVE US HANGING MAN - kendrak
No? Why not?? It would be awesome! You could appoint Kendra and Jennifer as the first co-cabinets of Soccer Ministry! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I am building this up way too much... - Zamms
At this point you'd better have invented a flying car or something - lris from Android
wait wait Zamms invented a flying car?! WELL DANG, THAT SURE IS NEWS. - RepoRat
BREAKING NEWS: Flying car invented by FF regular. Film at 11! - Catherine Pellegrino
*runs over to Wikipedia to edit Zamms's page* - RepoRat
*posts it to Twitter* - Catherine Pellegrino

Marie
Now please understand that I don't want to go spreading a rumor, but I have heard from a reliable source that a certain ff'er has developed a flying car.
He'll be offering the first sales to fellow ff'ers since it will be a limited release. Stay tuned for more rumors as they develop. - Marie
Scobleizer! Probably not. - Joe
More news: the car is a hybrid. - Marie
Multiple sources are reporting this! - John (bird whisperer)
Yeah, and it says so on Wikipedia too! - RepoRat
It's on the Internet? Then it's fact. #fact - Uli

If you were going to introduce someone to David Foster Wallace's writing, with which book/essay would you begin?
I would start with the cruise essay and/or the state fair essay ("A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" and "Getting Away from Already Being Pretty Much Away from It All") If they don't think those are funny/engaging, they probably won't like most of his work. - Steele Lawman
Seconding the cruise essay. - Meg VMeg
I really like the tennis essays, but I don't know that those would be a good intro for people who don't know the sport. Also, good list here: http://tetw.org/David_F... - Kirsten
Cruise essay, for sure. - laura x from iPhone
Just got the "Supposedly Fun..." book at our Library Book Sale, and any really any of the essays are good introductions. - Elizabeth Brown
The first thing I read by him was "The Depressed Person", and it totally slayed me, but that's probably a risky first read. - JffKrlsn from Android
I second the recommendation of either the cruise essay or state fair essays. I got into his writing in a completely different way but I think those would be good choices for those who never read him. - MariWeaver
If you go to the Harper's site, they want you to be a subscriber to get access to the first-published forms of those stories. But if you use the googles, you can find them free on Harper's blog: Here is "Ticket to the Fair" (later "Getting Away from Already Being Pretty Much Away from It All" (I think I messed that up earlier)):... more... - Steele Lawman

Holly's favorite Anna
I'm looking for someone based in the US who could do a workshop like this one: http://www.uksg.org/event...
Marie? Galadriel? - Holly's favorite Anna
That sounds fun (esp if G and I did it together). At what venue did you have in mind? - Marie
Ooh. Can I get in on this? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Maybe a panel? If so, I would be interested, too. - Joe
we have the best community ever, just sayin'. - Marie
Not a panel. Workshop. No more than two leaders for the sake of logistics and fitting everything into 4 hours with a break, and it would be a post-conference for NASIG in late May. And... I totally understand if G doesn't want to do it, given that. - Holly's favorite Anna
A great community indeed! I love the concept of this workshop, it's really needed and fantastic - I can't commit right now, but will think about it for sure! - Galadriel C.
Ah if only 2 then Marie & G should go for it. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Oh rats, I'll be out of the country at the end of May (hopefully). - Marie
Anna - what's you time frame? - Galadriel C.
I'd like to get a commitment nailed down in the next few weeks, as I'm planning to use our workshops as additional promotion for the call for concurrent session proposals ("come speak at our conference! see, we have awesome content you can add to!). But, that doesn't mean I need a fully fleshed out workshop program by then. Just a commitment to doing it. - Holly's favorite Anna
Jennifer Leffler on Twitter has also expressed an interest. - Holly's favorite Anna
I want to watch!! also: LSW meetup opportunity!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
If you're stuck, please allow me to recommend Taryn Resnick, head of e-resources at MfPOW. She's sharp! - RepoRat
If any of you who have expressed interested can get me a proposal in the next few weeks, do it. :) - Holly's favorite Anna
May I pass this on to Taryn? - RepoRat
Please do! - Holly's favorite Anna
BTW, anybody who is interested in proposing something, contact me at anna dot creech at the gmails. I really want to make this workshop happen! - Holly's favorite Anna

Aaron the Librarian
Academic Librarians - Are you following YikYak?
? clearly not... - ellbeecee
what the heck is yikyak? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Who in the what now? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
I checked it out earlier this year and then uninstalled it after a few days. Creepy place full of douchey bros. Not a cool place. Lots of k-12 schools are banning it because of the heartache it can cause. For example: http://nymag.com/thecut... When I tried it in Manhattan, I found tons of awful posts from NYU and Columbia students. - Stephen Francoeur
good lord. based on that article, wouldn't touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. - RepoRat
oh crap...i did hear about yikyak and blocked it out of my mind because the early press on it was so poor, much of the same reasons for what occurred in the article stephen linked to - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yep. What I see when I'm at home (local high schools, other colleges) is different than what I see at work. It's interesting/useful to see what's going on when they're having real dialogue there, but the high school age stuff is abhorrent. - Julie Kane
Tl;dr me about this, please? - Marie
YikYak is an app that uses your device location to show you anonymous posts by people in your vicinity (not sure of the range, maybe a few miles or so). You can post your own anonymous comments. - Stephen Francoeur
Merci - Marie from iPhone
I am now. Second post is a vulgar joke that mentions the library. - Steele Lawman
I can't even handle monitoring mentions on Twitter, I'm pretty sure this will kill me. - Meg VMeg
I downloaded to check it out. It's somewhat amusing. - Andy
I just checked it out. Two posts I could intervene in, but a whole lot of tedium, annoyance, and way too much blowjob advice. Still trying to figure out if it's worth spending time there in the building.... I'm also wondering if my commenting (Hey, just sent a building monitor to shush that noise!) will be seen as helpful or creepy. Because being seen as the creepy one on YiKYak would be pretty awful? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
But you're being creepy anonymously, so nobody knows it's you specifically. ;) - kaijsa
If you want to know when people are having sex in the library, there's an app for that - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Took a look. Not going back. - John Jackson from iPhone
I look at it occasionally. I'd check it more if it had a search function so I could search for library mentions...unless it does, and I just don't realize it. - YvonneM
I am not an academic librarian, but I do read it here occasionally. Iowa kids are actually remarkably sweet probably 80% of the time. Once in awhile they're very funny. The rest of the time they are racist sexist assholes, but I was expecting that to be most of the posts, so I was pleasantly surprised. - laura x
Today they are tired, have advice about how you should make sure you have lots of time to sleep if you take Tylenol PM, lest you miss class and Michelle Obama, are unsure of how to tell people they like them, and have discovered, by means of pH strip, that a pumpkin spice latte is basic. Also one said "whoa, I should go to the library more often! I actually studied." - laura x
"Basic" is relatively recent slang for me. So I looked it up on Urban Dictionary (because I am old and librarian) and found that the definition there is 8 years old. I'm so basic. - Steele Lawman
Well, you know, I'm so basic I am down with any joke made at the expense of a pumpkin spice latte. - laura x
Tried it. Not big here. Picked up only stuff from international schools. - aaron from Flucso

RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Hi all, I am getting ready to send out a survey to "all social sciences faculty in the US" and I'm wondering if any of you have done anything like that, and how you went about sending it out? My plan is to send via association listservs, but I'm finding many divisions have moved away from email lists, and many more hide the existence of an email...
I put together a list of all the library directors at carnegie designated master's granting universities for the dissertation. You might do the same for provosts at all US institutions and ask them to pass it to scosci faculty; we get many research surveys forwarded on by the Provost. Time consuming, but at least you'll have an idea of who you're hitting, methodologically. Everything else is sort of a crapshoot (and how would you measure participation as low or high? Or is it just informal?) - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
oh, that's a great idea, and MUCH easier than trying to find association listservs! (and we just decided response rate would be something we have to do without, no matter how we distribute. Even if we send to Provosts, we won't know how many distribute it or how many eyeballs receive it, right?) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
You would know how many potential eyeballs you'd have only if you knew how many socsci fac were at each institution. - Marie
are there specific pockets of socsci fac you're interested in targeting? so many from R1s, so many from comm colleges, etc. How will you know if your respondents are representative of the population? - Marie
Marie, not specific pockets, but the whole of it. We're looking into how social sciences (and some overlap into humanities) faculty use data in their research and teaching. We'll be slicing the data every which way to see the story it tells (discipline, geography, type of college/university, age of respondent...). The population we're looking at is really social sciences faculty in the... more... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yeah, cant hurt to add the provosts to the association list you may get. You still wont know about saturation, but the likelihood of responses goes up :) ETA: goodluck! - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
I'm unclear why you need ALL the social sciences faculty. But, FYI, there are mailing lists you can purchase. FWIW, most of the data slicing you are describing requires knowing who got the survey and the response rate to meet the requirements of the cross-tab/stratification analysis you want to do. Otherwise, you can't claim anything about faculty generally - just "those who responded"... more... - Lisa Hinchliffe
Lisa, my coauthor is at ICPSR, and she will be handling the analysis. I'm completely confident she knows what she's doing statistically. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan from YouFeed
I wouldn't touch a project like this without a coauthor who understands that side of it; I agree that librarians are embarrassingly bad, as a whole, at data-based research, and would never contribute to the hot mess. You know me better than that. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan from YouFeed
I'll be happy to be schooled on how the statistics work here if you don't have a way of knowing the sample. - Lisa Hinchliffe
^. Especially since youd have to know how many socsci faculty are at each institution to even know if you have a representative sample from the school. Very interested in seeing this! - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤

Starmama
I'm so traumatized by so many awful things happening in my life at once. I can't even think about my 25 years old earthquake stories, let alone put them into words. I can't even watch or read any of the retrospectives that are everywhere this week.
In fact, I'm more scattered & mentally exhausted than I've been in years. I can barely focus on anything, not even important stuff. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
:( *hugs* I hope you can stay strong. - LB put a spell on you. from Android
Courage, sister. - Corinne L
I'm sorry you're going through such a rough time. I hope your in-person network can help you shoulder some of the burden. Give yourself as many rest breaks and as much self-care as you think you can afford to. (((Starmama))) - Spidra Webster
I really don't have a network irl people either rely on me for help or get angry or distant when I panic. I'm so alone and I know I need to stfu & stop whining about my business on social media but it's either talk about it here or scream and cry by myself all day and night. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
The people you've helped before should be here for you now. I know it's not easy, but try not to panic as it usually saps you of the very will you need to cope. If a friend there is available, invite them to tea/coffee/whatever and ask them if they'll help you strategize. Let them know you need them now...not in a panicky way but in a calm honest way. Hopefully they'll be there for you... more... - Spidra Webster
