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 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
Mary Carmen
I've accepted that we've ruined her by letting her sleep in our bed. She slept the entire night with her feet between our heads and her head kinda under the covers. This kid.
Apparently she will sleep all night in our bed. Yesterday this entire family slept in until 10 and it was glorious. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Nowt wrong with co-sleeping. We did that with our kids and they both had rather painless transitions to sleeping alone in their own beds later on. - Big Joe Silenced from Android
I've done co-sleeping with all three of my boys. No regrets. - Jenny H.
You learn to sleep with toes in your eyes and knees in your back. It's almost restful... - MoTO Boychick Devil
Just make sure you have a big enough bed. This arrangement could last for years. - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫ from FFHound!
The 6yo slept with one or both of us until he was 3, and then on a mattress beside our bed until he was 4 b/c it meant more sleep for everyone. I don't miss the nightly wakings one bit, but b/c he was with/by us, I do have fond memories of some epic and hilarious middle-of-the-night philosophical discussions. - Galadriel C.
As the leader of my mom's group used to say, "Do what maximizes sleep for the whole family." Plus, middle of the night snuggles are the best. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Hey, if it means you're all sleeping, NEVER STOP. - Melly
had to boot mr3 last night because he was running his choo-choo train up my back... but besides that. - Christina Pikas
I'm loving this thread. - Big Joe Silenced from Android
We have a cal-king. Between two adults, three cats and one toddler we fit fine. Can't wait to add another kid into the mix. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

It’s not every day that I receive good news, experience 2 instances of extreme generosity, and get a lot done at work. Banner day.

Also, incredibly tiring day. - lris

Sometimes I randomly take the quizzes in whatever Coursera class I'm currently signed up for, but have never participated in. Just to see.
do you pass? - kendrak
I just got 10/12 on the second quiz for Data Analysis and Statistical Inference! - Meg VMeg
This seems like a less high-stakes version of all the achievement tests my mom took "for fun." - laura x
i think in the jhu ones you can take the quiz 4 times so you can pass by trial and error. if you want to. - Christina Pikas
I cannot imagine having the perseverance to do that. - Meg VMeg

Here we are. Me looking like complete crap after being up for 14 hours, 8 of which were on a plane (the last 4 next to a smelly dude) and then me running away from the camera.

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.

Centuries from now, when that plaque is excavated by archeologists, they will learn that the LSW was awesome. - lris

One of the things I love the most about having an extensive network of friends on the computer is that from time to time I finally get to meet people in person after years of lively online interaction. Last night, I met up with up with John Dupuis. So what do two OA advocates do to cap off the night? Why, take selfies in front of Elsevier's NA...
NA? - Joe
Joe: I'm guessing what got cut off was Elsevier's North America offices. - bentley
Ah. - Joe
Thanks. I usually think not affiliated or not applicable, but these two didn't seem applicable in his instance. - Joe
Dang mobile browsers. Yes, meant to say NA (North American) offices. Until about three years ago, Library Journal had its offices in the same building. - Stephen Francoeur from Android
*bump* - John Dupuis
Stephen Francoeur
Because I am a crazy person and maintain a spreadsheet detailing every social networking site I've joined (and there's a lot), I just realized that when FriendFeed shuts down on April 9, it will have been close to exactly seven years since the day I joined (April 8, 2008).
The network I've been on longest is last.fm, where I've been since March 25, 2004. http://www.last.fm/user... - Stephen Francoeur
I was on MySpace before that, but I nuked that account years ago and have no info on when I joined exactly. - Stephen Francoeur
That is a great idea. - Joe
It's a hoot to scan the list in chronological order beginning with the oldest ones. Remember All Consuming? iLike? Bebo? Pronetos? Profilactic? - Stephen Francoeur
Sorry, but nope on all five counts. But, I didn't look around as much as you did. - Joe
"Look around?" Leap around like a nut job is more accurate way of describing my willingness to try different sites. ;-) - Stephen Francoeur
and now we benefit from that expertise as you suggest new places for us to land! :) - ~Courtney F
Think that was the time of "life streaming".Some libraries were trying friendfeed out at the time to consolidate social media streams. Think that was how I found friendfeed, though I can't remeber how I found LSW. Depending on how you count "network" the free Internet chess server which I joined in 1997 is still around and I still have the password. - aaron from Flucso
I vaguely recall the name Bebo but struggling to remember what it did. Was it a MyFaceSpaceBook type place? - Deborah Fitchett
Parents place "Feb 98 babies " joined when preggo in June 97. At a time when all the preggy mummies worldwide who were using the Internet could fit comfortably on one bulletin board. - Kathryn is a free elf from iPhone
I think Bebo was a MySpace like service that was most popular in England. Speaking of Bebo, here's a fun old song (1985!) by the Chills I like, "Bee Bah Bee Bee Bee Boe." https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Stephen Francoeur
"Profilactic"!! Hahahahahah!! - Brent Schaus
Zamms
If we buy enough swag at the FriendFeed store, will they keep the site up? http://www.cafepress.com/friendf...
Last chance to buy FriendFeed stuff? - bentley
Maybe if we all get Friendfeed tattoos and form a human chain outside Facebook headquarters they'll keep the site up. - John Dupuis

YOU GUYS. I SIGNED UP FOR AN ALA COURSE YESTERDAY THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE AND IT ONLY TOOK 10 MINUTES.
Is that like a record or something? - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android

Some parents are asked to make up stories. I have to make up songs. Tonight's had to have a digger, an excavator, and a little dump truck.
And what rhymes with Bulldozer? - WarLord
The excavator part also involved an elevator. Luckily I haven't been asked for a bulldozer yet. Previous topics have included owls, bunnies, and fire trucks. - laura x from iPhone
Oh man. I'd forgotten all about #toddlerx's song period. - laura x

FF replacement option: Commons in a Box. What are the pros/cons?
Cons: someone's got to install it and host it. - Stephen Francoeur
Pros: content will be "ours" and can migrated (maybe). - Stephen Francoeur
I would vote for something we have control of, hosted by a reliable Blake of some sort, and encourage donations to keep it going. Replacing thelsw.org with that, perhaps? - Zamms
That's a possibility, since CinaB is WP-based. We wouldn't necessarily even have to lose what's there -- exporting/re-importing could be a doable thing. - RepoRat
Cool. I figure, the site exists already so using the domain that "we" already own would make the most sense. - Zamms
If you wanna be hep to the lingo, they like to call it "CBOX." - Stephen Francoeur
Pros: You can create public groups and private groups. Pseudonyms are fine. I've been using the original version of it, CUNY Academic Commons, for years. - Stephen Francoeur
(This is looking pretty good to me. I can and will commit to installation/maintenance, as well as pitching in on costs.) - RepoRat
foating? threading? - lris
One thing I don't really like is that the main way that you post items is in a forum that may not work the way we're used to feeds here in FF. - Stephen Francoeur
Also, although you can create a Twitter feed, I'm not sure if there's way to plug in other feeds. - Stephen Francoeur
Pros: looks like there's a BuddyPress plugin replicating FF block functionality: http://www.philopress.com/product... - RepoRat
Just commenting to say I'd be happy to chip in for costs, too. - Regular Amanda from Android
I'd be happy to pay for LSW hosting wherever we wind up. - Stephen Francoeur
I would as well. - ellbeecee
Me too. - bentley
Me too - lris from Android
Me too - Sarah
Looks like sentiment is converging on this. Are we ready to give it a try? - RepoRat
I have hosting that would run WP, I'm sure it would run the commons in a box. Who owns the thelsw.org domain? Would we want to run it as a subdomain? cbox.thelsw.org has a nice ring to it... - WebGoddess
We probably would want it as a subdomain or folder; seems to me that's the easiest way to avoid clobbering existing content. lris and laurax control thelsw.org; I think Blake is running the back end? - RepoRat
no opinion on cbox, but happy to defer to others - and happy to chip in $$ - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Also happy to chip in $. And to strongly recommend that Blake be involved in some (paid) capacity. - Catherine Pellegrino
I already have http://thelsw.org/ I can make this happen. - Blake
There would be some logic to charging a token, one-time fee (to post, not view) a la Metafilter. Would help support the hosting and guard against spam. - JffKrlsn from Android
Blake, if I can help, lmk! Happy to be backup sysadmin. - RepoRat
JffKrlsn: I'd be down with that. - Zamms
I will kick in some $$. - kaijsa
a small price to pay for FREEDOM! - ♫Maurice the Dolphin♫
Yes. And thanks to those willing to contribute skillz. - barbara fister

Wow, 3 minutes of Steve and LSW! (start at about minute 6:54 for the Steve/LSW part). - lris

A colleague here at Baruch who also helps with the CUNY Academic Commons (the original CBOX) suggested we take a look at Discourse as a FF replacement. He mentioned that it is modeled on the StackOverflow system. http://www.discourse.org/
It offers threaded conversations and it floats posts with new comments to the top of the list (you have to click through to read them, though). - Stephen Francoeur
ooh, i like that file attachment feature. - Marie
This looks very cool! Stephen thank you for looking in to this -- let us know where/how much to chip in on whatever the decision is? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I really like this one. It offers URLs for each post, you can edit posts and comments, you like and bookmark posts and comments. - Stephen Francoeur
Also, it's got search. - Stephen Francoeur
Here's a link to a post in the sandbox. This link might not survive, as they clean out the sandbox every day. http://try.discourse.org/t... - Stephen Francoeur
Actually, I like that a lot - watching Stephen and Hedgie converse was interesting. I don't see where the source is held, but I'll poke around and if it's easy enough to install, i may throw a copy on my server for us to try out. - WebGoddess
Ok, found it on Github. I'll let you know how this works out for me. Tomorrow, most likely. Homework tonight... - WebGoddess
Nope - requires Docker to work and I don't have that on my server, nor can I see it happening any time soon... There is the $100 one time fee, with a $10 monthly hosting fee that I'm sure we could come up with pretty quickly, though... - WebGoddess
Stephen and I also tested private conversations, which is a little different but still works pretty well. I'd be okay with tossing $ too-- Blake--would this work as an install on thelsw? - Hedgehog
I CAN DO ANYTHING ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR - Blake
I'm in the middle of a Docker class at the Linux Academy, Blake, so if you want another pair of eyes on things, let me know! - WebGoddess
At a glance, having to click through for the conversation seems like the only downside, and would get used to that quickly. Everything else looks nice and clean and intuitive. - Deborah Fitchett

Sigh. I apparently lost my (custom, 30th anniversary, pair) wedding ring today, so I'm currently not feeling very action-y. Depressed and upset and... but right now, I'm just not up for anything. - walt crawford
Crap, any idea where you lost it? - Meg VMeg
That's too bad, Walt. I once lost mine for 10 months (it was in the bottom of a deep kitchen drawer filled with tupperware). I also lost it for 15 minutes on the day after I got married as we were flying to our honeymoon (I found it under the cushion of my seat). - Stephen Francoeur
No idea. Retraced our walk, called the two places I'd been, looked *everywhere* in the house--and, because Tuesday's garbage/recycling day, we spent a couple of hours going through the garbage, green waste (I'm degrassing the front yard) and recycling: Finally had dinner at 8 p.m. instead of the usual 6 p.m. - walt crawford
Later this morning I'll go through the not-yet-recycled buckets of grass, etc. one more time, probably shovel & sift through a few cubic feet of soil, revisit two places, and call the police dept. to see if they have a lost & found. And try to get things back to normal. Very little likelihood of finding it. Still not up for action figure, I'm afraid... - walt crawford
My wife had been suggesting that I have a ball mounted on inside of ring (she has this) to help prevent it slipping off the finger; I found the ball really uncomfortable, so resisted. As usual, she was/is right. UPDATE: Wedding ring found. - walt crawford
Hooray! Now can we have the action figure? - Cameron Neylon
Walt, I have two balls on one of the rings I wear (it belonged to my great-grandmother and then my grandmother)--I've gotten used to them much more quickly than I thought I would. - laura x
Laura: Thanks for that. I'm definitely going to get it done (and it is two balls, not one). - walt crawford
yay wedding ring found!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Yay! - bentley
Yay! I've actually "lost" my wedding ring twice over the years and ended up finding it. The first time was on a business trip to the UK only about a year or two after we got married. I noticed it was gone while on the plane and spent the whole time sweating it out. Fortunately, it was sitting on the top of my clothes in my suitcase when I got home. It probably fell off while I was packing after my shower. - John Dupuis
Also, I vote for a Walt action figure, even if only a virtual one. - John Dupuis
I saw one of these machines at the Toys R Us in Times Square over the weekend: http://marvel.com/news... - Stephen Francoeur

Confession: I just had to try making a black and white tree bead. It's a stolen concept but I couldn't resist
IMG_0932.JPG
*adds more beads to wishlist* - Hookuh Tinypants
Great artists steal :-) - Todd Hoff
I couldn't help it .. I just couldn't ....but I'm thinking the judge isn't gonna buy that. I don't know if I can sell these in good conscious or not. I certainly wouldn't sell them anywhere that was in direct competition with the original maker. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Those are lovely. - SAM
Here's the original and its a gazillion times lovlier https://www.facebook.com/photo... - Shannon - GlassMistress
omg, I want one!! are they on your etsy? (I like your shapes better) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Really nice S! - VALZONE#SCREWED
Stephanie I haven't posted them anywhere. I'm on the fence whether selling them is really ethical or not ... in the same breath I want to make more of them because I enjoyed the challenge. - Shannon - GlassMistress
lovely! - ~Courtney F
Can you contact the person you got the idea from, and ask their blessing to sell yours? - Jenica
Do you have a e-newsletter that you send out to regular customers with updates on your bead show appearances, new beads, special deals/Etsy coupon codes, etc.? This may be an item that your regulars would be interested in purchasing privately. - Corinne L
^ This. I mean, even if you feel like this is something you can't publicly sell, believe us when we say we love it and would totally buy (but keep it on the DL) your awesome beads. Honestly, I think that taking inspiration from someone's design and then working it to be your own style isn't unethical at all. Art begets art. You could do a whole series of these with different silhouettes...like ginko leaves, maple leaves, owls, animal paw prints, etc. I would kill for a bead like this of a giant redwood. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
If you were directly copying, I could see not competing, but yours are different. (I like them better.) I think it's fine to sell them wherever, lots of people take inspiration from others. - Heather

Trying to do some background reading for some research projects that will look at user experience and the search process. I need to read some notable works on information seeking behavior and have begun reading Carol Kuhlthau. I'm looking for models that I can use in my analysis of usabilty test results. Who should I be reading also or instead?
I see lots of intriguing models detailed in this book: https://www.worldcat.org/title... - Stephen Francoeur
It would be ideal, of course, to read everything, but if I do that, I'll never get to the point of collecting my own data. So where should I begin? - Stephen Francoeur
I've looked at a previous edition of this book in the past, Looking for Information: A Survey of Research on Information Seeking, Needs and Behavior (Library and Information Science) Hardcover – April 19, 2012 by Donald O. Case - Joe
Lots of thing by Carol Tenopir, http://scholar.cci.utk.edu/carol-t... - Joe

What they said and I really do like Wilson so I'll recommend something different. How about Marti Hearst's book on search interfaces ? It's free on her site - Christina Pikas from iPhone
I'm wondering if anyone has tried to answer the question about whether the way we conceive of search (our mental model) has changed (and, if so, in what ways) since the web made the very concept of search a regular feature of our lives. - Stephen Francoeur
Maybe something from Weave or Matt Reidsma's work? http://matthew.reidsrow.com/ One of my coworkers is working on some research into discovery tools comparisons--I can also put you in touch with her. - Hedgehog
I've got a backlog of articles to read in Weave. I've been reading Matthew Reidsma's blog since it started and trying to keep up with his presentations that he shares online. I'm thinking there must be someone who has written about search outside of libraryland. This book is on my to-read list and is in the ballpark: http://designingthesearchexperience.com/ - Stephen Francoeur
Search outside of libraryland??? There are some JASIST articles on everyday information seeking, and a book, "Everyday Information: The Evolution of Information Seeking in America, ed. William Aspray and Barbara M. Hayes. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press, 2011. p. $60 (ISBN 0-262-01501-3). - Joe

Though I think user experience is not the same thing as information seeking behavior. If made into a Venn diagram, a lot would fall outside how search platforms work (or don't). - barbara fister
Also interesting to think of how UX that's designed for marketing differs from good UX for research and how the different assumptions might influence the questions we ask and how we read the results. - barbara fister
Here are some others, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi... and maybe http://www.sciencedirect.com/science... from 10 years ago. - Joe
Barbara, one thing that's got me wondering is how search that is designed for non-research purposes affects how our students conceive of search and conduct them. How have their expectations been shaped by Google, eBay, Amazon, etc.? What can I learn from those commercial search experiences that can help us design better research interfaces? - Stephen Francoeur
Some of our librarians will say that we have Summon because it is the "libraries response to have a google-like interface" to academic content. I don't quite buy that, but that is what some of my coworkers have said. Something like that anyway. - Joe
I'm still pondering that the Memex Vanevar Bush imagined in 1945 looked very little like our databases, which look like indexes turned into shopping platforms. I want my trails of association! - barbara fister
this is hearsay, but I think that the Triangle Research LIbs Networks' shared catalog interface (search.lib.unc.edu) was created by the software that created B&N (or Amazon's) Interface. This is years ago, now, but I could poke around down here if you want to see who knows more about that. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
distinct from NCSU's use of Endeca? - RepoRat
Jasist is outside libraryland?! - Aaron the Librarian from Android
JASIST is information scientists. *They* sure think they're outside libraryland. - RepoRat
My hubby studies this area. He adds: Elfreda Chatman - ethnographic approaches to info seeking behaviour, esp underserved groups Also: David Ellis, Bryce Allen, R. S. Taylor - Megan loves summer
I meant that there are some articles in JASIST that talk about how non librarians and regular people (not students, not faculty) try to find information. - Joe
I totally believe dicovery layers are an attempt to be more Google-like. I am not convinced but I see the appeal. (All the money and time they require? Would people love them as much if they knew that's where limited library dollars go? I dunno.) - barbara fister

Hope you were able to turn it into a faux-Valley Girl/Millennial complaint (without the sexist/ageist slant, of course...sorry, this comment got complicated, I'm sure you did great). - Meg VMeg
I said some hard truths couched in satire. It felt very Colbert/Stewart. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android

RT @webinista: Mr. Snufflelupagus is on Twitter. His account is protected, but BIG BIRD CAN SEE IT. I see what you did there @sesamestreet team.
except for adults can see "snuffy" now - because someone complained that kids who report weird sightings shouldn't be ignored. - Christina Pikas
"someone complained" -> "In an interview on a Canadian telethon that was hosted by Bob McGrath, Snuffy's performer, Martin P. Robinson, revealed that Snuffy was finally introduced to the main human cast mainly due to a string of high profile and sometimes graphic stories of pedophilia and sexual abuse of children that had been aired on shows such as 60 Minutes and 20/20.
