@walterbriggs Thank you for the excellent suggestion, Walter. I will try those … after I finish the last 45 chapters of the Brothers.
@fredsheahan Happy holidays to you, too! I love these shortest days as the transition to next year gets under way, at least psychologically.

Listened to Brothers Karamazov during long drive http://j.mp/eQJss1. Most of the readers were great. What audio books do you recommend?
@devinsays I’ve seen Rip. Great! That kind of decision shouldn’t be made on behalf of thousands of users without their knowledge, though.
@tonydunn Did you try Twitter lists? You can have up to 20, and they can be private. That way, you can select who you’ll read first.
@amuhs Thank you. That is very good!
RT @amuhs “I prefer to think of the web, esp for a news org, as evolving …” Yes! Tracking development of story would be valuable addition.
@portlandhead Agreed, and so welcoming. Thank you. My stomach still hurts this morning.
@portlandhead It was the color balance problem that really caught my eye, altho the aspect ratio did seem similar on both. Forever a mystery
@ryanbretag By the way I wasn’t saying library staff are our only social curators; as you said, we all are. I’m just seeking partnerships.
@ryanbretag We can encourage traditional gatekeepers to expand their roles to become partners and facilitators in that process. Opportunity.
@ryanbretag Don’t we all use a sifting process? Evaluation? I don’t know about hierarchical, but nested? Yes. For ex, I now follow you.
@ryanbretag Exactly. In addition, should prof. librarians also expand their role to include curation of external resources?
