    If you really think I’m going to click on an hour-long video link…

    Can’t we just Google the guy?

    During his talk Shirky acknowledged that there is a tremendous amount of information that simply isn’t available on the internet, especially anything that predates the internet. That’s what archivists and LIBRARIES are for said Mr. Shirky at the BHA annual meeting! . . . Then we cried out and held up our signed: “Don’t Sell Our Libraries!”

    But the BHA says it can’t support the call of de Blasio and the community to halt the Bloomberg plan to sell the libraries!
