Raison d'être

Up until a few days ago, I had a blog on the NYPL servers. Then it got eaten when I was trying to activate plugins and while it may reappear sometime in the future, it's dead now. One of my biggest frustrations with their system was that it was closed to the public. While that makes a certain amount of sense, it also doesn't make any sense at all. Because of this barrier to access, I couldn't read other employee's blogs easily, couldn't read them in Google Reader, and the aggregated list they created to help with this was imperfect. There was also no notification of comments being posted or replied to. So I decided to take the plunge and jump into the open waters of public, non-pseudonymous blogging. I will frequently be critical, but do not intend for this to resemble Library Mofo. I will be personal, but will try not to name names.

I will eventually publicize, but until there's some content here it'll be a soft launch. I hate when people advertise a community that has no content yet, how can you know whether or not you're interested?
