Cites & Insights 7:12, November 2007, is now available for downloading.
The 28-page issue is PDF as usual (HTML versions of most essays are available at the home page). It includes:
Thanks! - A note about my new position as Director and Managing Editor of the PALINET Leadership Network (and why there was no liblog extravaganza this year).
A tiny section correcting two name problems and listing the publishers who've disowned PRISM.
"Sometimes They're Guilty," a review of and commentary on the first RIAA suit to go to jury trial.
Nine trends (including a librarian winner of the Ig Nobel for Literature--and no, the article isn't at all a joke) and eight quicker takes.
The biggest chunk of this issue--ten thousand words considering general blogging issues and library-specific blogging issues from October 2006 until recently.
Six products (including a variety of views on a certain high-profile Apple product that appears to excel at everything except its supposed primary function) and a dozen Editors' Choices and other winners.
Six snarky little essays. As always, this one's only available as part of the whole issue.
I've revised the Word template for the HTML essays to be a little more "printlike." If you find that it doesn't work for you, let me know: I might change it back. If you don't notice a difference, that's OK too.
