Uncontrolled Vocabulary #27 - What's Wrong With Cool?

Whenever I am available 10 pm (EST) on Wednesday evenings, I like to take part in the phone-in show for librarians called Uncontrolled Vocabulary. The show is created and hosted by Greg Schwartz and uses the Talkshoe platform for recording and hosting.

In last night's episode there were just four of us talking, so you actually have a chance to hear me pontificate a little more than usual. I like taking part because there are few librarians from special libraries participating, and not so many Canadians. That being said, our group last night was half Canadian with the brilliant Ryan Deschamps of the Halifax Public Library also taking part. The other participants were (of course) Greg himself, and up-and-coming librarian Julian Clark who works at the Georgetown University Law Library. I met Julian at last year's Computers in Libraries conference and was very impressed with this library student. I can't wait to see what he does when he finishes his degree!

If you haven't done so already, check out last night's show and past episodes. They run about an hour in a talkshow format, wherein we discuss controversial articles and blog posts of interest to the library community.
