But I will comment on this: the tags and linkwords being generated around the current ALA president are simply to die for. I screengrabbed one of them for you – See Also uses the tags yipping, yawping, and sad old men. The Librarianinblack uses irrisponsible and alienating as linkwords that link to other posts. I have also seen Gormangate and blogpeople used as tags.
For some much-needed contrast, go to Technorati.com, click tags, and do a search on “leslie burger”. Here’s what you’ll get: first, some recent images from her Flickr account. Also one pic from the Shifted Librarian, titled “View of San Antonio from Leslie Burger’s suite.” How “suite” is that (sorry for the bad play on words…)?
Then (ok – seriously – scroll on down past the hamburger ads…) you’re greeted with four posts: two discussing her work on the Katrina Project, one titled “ALA to see changes,” and one titled “On Becoming the Change You Want to See.”
I think tags and linkwords for the ALA Presidency are about to change for the better…
