    I’ve never experienced this before: I am an instant fan of Jessamyn. Expecting goodness from this guest blogging!

  3. Glenn Fleishman says:

    Jessamyn is one of the reasons I *don’t* believe culture is heading to hell in a handbasket! Glad to see you here!

    Snowshoeing sucks because it involves snow. And my color is blue, which it would have to be since I’m retired AF. Welcome.

    I know that this is foolish, but do you know George Wells?

    Right on Jessamyn, looking forward to your posts! You and other librarians like Sanford Berman continue to be great inspirations to me in my life and work.

    dunno what snowshoeing is, books are good though, sounds like the newbie is livin’ large, we will be sure to watch this space!!

    Way to Jessamyn! You are a wonderfully insightful blogger and professional. I am glad to see a fellow librarian contributing in areas beyond the librariana world.
    I look forward to following your posts here.

    Oh yeah! Welcome! :D

    I so look forward to your input. I fear the librarian will become about as needed as canal boat mule drivers. So sad. When libraries and real books become museums and museum items, where will we find intelligent answers to our questions? Certainly not the search engines. Open stacks is where the treasures are. I for one have found my best resources by looking on a shelf for a book that a librarian sent me to, only to find what I “really” wanted in an adjacent book on the nearby shelf.
    Thank you for sharing your views.

      I think your conception of what a librarian is might be a little dated.

      Also: Jessamyn. Please don’t delete my comments! ;)

    w00t! great to see a hipster librarian here. I’m going to school in VT right now and loving it. Proud to see a Vermonter here. (=

    I think librarians of all genders are unspeakably hot. Just sayin’.

    I met you at a Vermont Blogger meeting a few years back. I was working on my MA thesis and loved what you had to say on the panel and in person. Look forward to reading this….

    She’s on loan. You can’t keep her.

    Looking forward to the posts!

  21. librarygoblin says:

    Yay! Jessamyn rocks!

  22. Practical Archivist says:

    omgomgomgomgomgomg! Jessamyn is one of my information geek heroes. If the only thing she ever did was create these technically legal patriot act signs for public libraries, I would say: Dayenu!

  23. LibrarianX says:

    So happy to have Jessamyn as the guest librarian voice!

  24. droostring says:

    And all the librarians come out of hiding who read BoingBoing! haha
    I’ll have to pay extra careful attention now to BB.net, can’t miss any of Jessamyn’s posts!

  25. ahniwa says:

    Hooray for Jessamyn!

  26. Abelard Lindsay says:

    Gah! I can’t abide these damned Libertarians on Boing Boing all the time. Bloody entitled anti-social creeps who…
    Librarian, you say? Oh. I like librarians!
    Never mind.

    Hi Jess! Way to network! Looking forward to your bb posts!

    Jessamyn, it is time! Detonate the Secret Quansar bomb buried beneath the plate of beans! No administrator can hope them now!

  29. neverender says:

    Yay! she sounds awesome. Welcome Jessamyn!

  30. obdan says:

    I guess that I’m with you on everything but the color orange.

    Brilliant to see Jessamyn here. She is, well, special, in her own special way :) Looking forward to her posts!

  32. scarabic says:

    What a catch for BoingBoing! I’ll certainly be reading more often.

  33. Thad E Ginataom says:

    When Jessamyn goes,
    A part of me knows,
    I’m not really livin’…


  34. MollyM says:

    Hooray! It’s about time that BoingBoing added a librarian to the mix! As a fellow librarian (if not nearly as cool), I’m really looking forward to reading Jessamyn’s posts.
