So when you watch the championships for a sport you have ignored all season, do you root for the team from the cool city, or the team you feel sorry for?
Yes. - Joe
You are talking about KC as the cool city, right? - Joe
Reading about copyright law always makes me feel like a cranky toddler because I want things to be EASY and FUN and centered around MY DESIRES! But instead they are DUMB and COMPLICATED!
I just want to use what I want when I want it. JEEZ. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
^^ THIS - Steele Lawman
Copyright is like wedding cake. Yeah sure it could be simple but wouldn't it awesome to be put some flowers, ribbons, little figures, a couple of extra layers, some extra tiers, maybe a fruity filling oooo let's get some columns on there wedding guests love columns. - Andy
And let's make it six times as big as anyone will actually eat! - RepoRat
Eat cake. EAT CAKE!! - Steele Lawman
I find it perversely fascinating. A nifty and fairly simple 18th century idea that went Hollywood. Millions of dollars on spectacle, special effects, and vapidity. - barbara fister
Oh, and lobbyists and graft. Lobbyists v. Hobbyists: Return of the Wedding Cake from Hell. - barbara fister
I'm with Steve. - laura x
Should I worry that I didn't get any of Pete's Seymour Lubetzky jokes?
Not at all :-) - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
I thought you went to bed! Or was that another joke that went over my head? - Steele Lawman
I am in bed,reading :-) lights out soon! - Pete : Team Marina from FFHound(roid)!
Sleep tight, Pete. - Steele Lawman
It's just a series of puns based on Lubetzky's question to cataloguing code writers- "Is this rule really necessary?" - Pete : Team Marina
Campus website has been up and down a lot in the last 24 hours. Here's a recent status update on Twitter from college ITS.
Totally stealing this. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
love it - maʀtha
Brilliant. - Catherine Pellegrino
Every now and then I think I should update my LinkedIn profile. Then I lie down until the feeling passes.
I need a personal assistant who pays me for the privilege of being my personal assistant
Sign me up for that kind of assistant, too! - lris
Just now realized there's still the potential for an all-Missouri World Series.
I have thought more about Missouri this year than I have in the rest of my life combined. - Steele Lawman
I don't know, the Australian teams are looking good... sorry, what? We're not in the World Series? My mistake ;) - Johnny from iPhone
Me in class today: "Remember that JSTOR only digitizes a limited number of journals in each discipline. For example, in the subject of history, there are only...over 5,000... Ok, that's actually a crapton, but..."
History is the bread and butter of JSTOR. :) - Holly's favorite Anna
For my journalism & PR students, i emphasize the STOR in JStor, telling them that it's not current - which is what they need. JStor has great name recognition, but it's the WRONG database for mai students, generally. *sigh* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Coverage is great in lit, but our profs want lit students entering the *current* conversation in the crit, so they require sources to be <10 years old. I have to flat out tell them to keep their grubby mitts off JSTOR and go to to MLA first. - kaijsa
One of the students I went through writing tutor training with about 5 years ago just wrote on my Facebook wall, "A good section of my 7th grade class the other day was spent explaining that librarians are cool. Expect disciples soon."
My first try at a "no monsters allowed" poster.
Oooh! I like it! And it has a Lego person! - laura x
This is awesome. - Yolanda from Android
Want. - Bruce Lewis
Love it! - Janet
I am a middle-aged guy in the same Starbucks for the second time today. AMA.
Who gave my dog coffee before bed?
Sorry. - Joe
that...that may have been my cats. even though i don't drink it they've found some. somewhere. god only knows where - Sir Shuping is just sir
this was the top related video for Iris's worst video ever. I love this so much. - Steele Lawman from Bookmarklet
I know, it's not long enough for a full work day, but what can you do. - Steele Lawman
Slashy. - RepoRat
This will get me through the rest of this craptastic week. Thank you, Steve. Thank you magical internets. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
after an hour, this is still awesome. - kendrak
1:04. My life has a new soundtrack. I think I found the answer to my Spiral of Negativity. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Sorry guys, I think I lasted about 5 minutes. - Joe
STILL GOING - kendrak
BUMP - Steele Lawman
omg how did i miss this? - jambina
You are here now, jambina. That's the important thing. - Steele Lawman
i am blessed - jambina
Dammit, I already liked this. - Meg VMeg
Somehow, despite my efforts to share, Iris has missed this video. THIS BUMP'S FOR YOU, IRIS! - Steele Lawman
But wait, WHAT IS IRIS'S WORST VIDEO EVER? Edit: wait, nevermind, I'm a librarian and know to search... - Catherine Pellegrino
I prefer the 10 hr one. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
There's also this, Rochelle: HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA.COM - Steele Lawman
I also enjoy having multiple windows open. It's like the most annoying round ever. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
oh, that's evil genius, Ro. - ellbeecee
OMG - lris
BUMP - Steele Lawman
HOW DID I NOT 'LIKE' THIS THE FIRST (or second) TIME AROUND? - Catherine Pellegrino
Student was so considerate and grateful for help, she made me feel very helpful, but also kind of sorry that she felt it was necessary to be so thankful. - Steele Lawman
Computer beeping at me like a geiger counter. - Steele Lawman
TIL: Naomi Wolf and Naomi Klein are two different people.
Yes, indeed they are. I prefer Klein. - laura x
Wolf seems to have gone off the deep end, conspiracy theory-wise - Steele Lawman
I sort of thought she went off the deep end when she started writing about her vagina and tantric healing, myself. - laura x
Right? I learned that a few years ago, but I still can't really keep it straight. - Meg VMeg
I tend to forget which is which. - John (bird whisperer)
One's Canadian. Again, I have a hard time remembering which. - DJF
Klein is Canadian and in her early 40s and was quite a party animal. (she grew up in Montreal, I heard stories from UofT peeps too) - jambina
Found outside the library this morning: "Justin Bieber brain"
Got John Darnielle from the Mountain Goats to sign my copy of his novel tonight at the Tattered Cover, Denver. Didn't get a photo with him, nor did I remember to ask him to draw me a pentagram next to his signature, but I did get to thank him for his music and his writing, and I did get to shake his hand. So that was pretty good.
Yesterday I taught a class for freshmen, and one of them had the book out. - Meg VMeg
Oh,cool. I thought it was an excellent book. - Steele Lawman
I may have mentioned this before, but all the #teamharpy related/inspired posts has me thinking about it again. One of the few things I'm truly ashamed of in my life is that I sat and watched--maybe even laughed--as Stephen Abram tore into a few young women in a hotel bar at Internet Librarian 2005 for the sin of being female and ignoring him.
Eventually I became uncomfortable and put some physical distance between myself and Abram, and tried to put some psychological/moral distance between myself and him by making small talk with those women. But it has obviously stuck with me for a long time, and is part of the reason that I believe #teamharpy and stand with the other women who are coming forward about their experiences. The kind of sexist power play I saw from Abram isn't OK, and I hope I know better now and would speak up immediately if put in the same situation again. - Steele Lawman
I might have laughed, too, if I thought he wasn't serious. I know better now, but most people don't know that creeps are creeps at first, particularly if they have some charm. As for myself, if he ever tried anything like that on me, I'd flat-out tell him he was barking up the wrong tree. Maybe that's why I never notice this kind of behavior directed towards me, in addition to not being conventionally pretty. - Holly's favorite Anna
I respect that the Colbert Report isn't to Iris's taste, but at the same time I feel like if we didn't have Colbert to take down buffoons like Bill O'Reilly, we'd need to invent him.
For me, the Daily Show does the job. But yes, I agree that it's good to have Colbert doing his thing. I just wish I could like it was well as appreciate it. - lris
I need an Ello invite so I can try and justify my worthless existence through pathetic attempts to seem "clever" and "genuine" on yet another social media website, only to inevitably lose interest gradually or flame out suddenly, leaving behind another data-husk to mark my passage through this pale excuse for a life.
Well,my man, what's your e-mail address? Join us in the Enbaffleing - Pete : Team Marina, my friend. - Steele Lawman
maybe think of them as shed snake skins rather than husks? you gotta shed to grow, man. - Marianne
Done. You too can watch something being built, largely by a small group of people trying to respond to the shouts of a much larger group. Sort of like a Crystal Maze approach to software development. - Pete : Team Marina
Can someone send me an invite please? Cpikas @ gmail - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Thank you! - Christina Pikas from iPhone
"Life on the outside: collections, contexts and the wild, wild web" Keynote presented at the Annual Conference of the Japanese Association for the Digital Humanities, 20 September 2014, Tsukuba.
"Such questions remain crucial as we consider the relationship between cultural collections and their online users. If we expect people to erect ‘generous signposts’ we have to make our stuff easy to find and share. If we want them to consider their responsibility to the past we should focus on providing trust, confidence, and support, not permission." - Steele Lawman
Oh my god. High school kid does an a cappella version of The Mountain Goats' "No Children." Heroic.
In-box zero! (Stars in his eyes!)
*sends emails* - ellbeecee
Sends another email. - Joe from iPod
I'm just a big pile of nope today.
Oh how I love the MoTO / Pete bromance.
Will our parents ever approve? #stormybromance - MoTO: Team Marina
There are so many things to love about this ad aimed at "Collegy chaps who must be garbed *right*" which appeared in the May 11, 1906 issue of Colorado College's "The Tiger"
I won't lie, I balked. - Steele Lawman
*clutches pearls* - lris
"College Brand ideas are very ultra merchant-tailorings produced in 'ready-to-slip-on' form..." What does that even mean? - Catherine Pellegrino
If you were their target audience, you would know. ;) - lris
I'm guessing it means 'looks like bespoke, costs like off the rail' - Pete : Team Marina
Dad and Luke got home from Seattle and PAX Prime last night, both having had a really good time. Here's a photo of Luke on the streets of Seattle that my dad took.
Here they are, headed for Seattle.

Mr. 12 looks toothless in this picture, or tooth-deficient anyway. Not my favorite picture of him for sure! Mr. 71 looks pretty happy. - Mama Lawson
I always smiled with my mouth closed as a kid. I wasn't aware one was supposed to show that one had teeth. - laura x from iPhone
My mom arranged for my father to take Mr. 12 to PAX Prime this year, the big videogame expo in Seattle. Mr. 12 left the house a few minutes ago and they fly out of Denver this afternoon. I'm so excited for them! I hope it goes well.
I'm so glad it's your dad taking him, because I know you'll get some fabulous photos of Mr. 12 out of the deal. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
Yes, I just emailed my dad a request for a few photos of them together, since dad's usually behind the camera and not in front of it. - Steele Lawman
First snafu: Luke left his wallet at home. Luckily, dad has deep pockets. - Steele Lawman
