Geeky Campaign from OCLC

...called Geek the Library.

Geek the Library is a community-based public awareness campaign designed to highlight the vital role of public libraries for individuals and communities, and raise awareness about the critical funding issues they (we) face.

Tons of cool imagery and resources for 'getting your geek on'.

hmm

so I guess the "hip, young librarian" movement is over? thanks, OCLC.

For a great analysis

The lovely and intelligent Jessamyn West has a really good dialog on her blog regarding this. As I read it I thought to myself "Yeah, this is what I wanted to say, but I didn't really understand how."

Check it out. I think it sums things up really well.

One More Thing

Am I the only one who thought that by typing a response in that I geek X box, you were going to get some kind of thing to make your own geeking poster or sign or, well, something? I think they missed out there and this whole... thing, could've been made a lot more interesting if my staff and I could've made some kind of poster or something to post at the front desk.

Oh well.

that would be a good idea

suggest it to them? maybe it wouldn't be that hard to achieve~

Well

The site just baffled me. It was pretty, of course, but was otherwise baffling. I agree that the "igeek" behavior was fairly non-intuitive. It seems to be barely linked to an initiative to obtain user-generated content.

Here, That Wasn't So Hard...

So I don't have to be at work until 11 today. And I have Photoshop along with Publisher and far too much free time on my hands...

Now actually getting a website to render this? That's FAR beyond my capabilities. I know just enough PHP to crash a server real good. :)

I'm impressed

Is that you wearing the tie?

Well...

It's my alter-ego wearing the tie. I try not to wear anything that someone can readily use to hang me with. :)
