@ranginui Anyone who can say they created LibraryThing is allowed quite a bit of ego in my book! ;-)

Will services like #spotify make music in libraries obsolete?
Thinking about how services like #spotify will change our relationship with music, the mind boggles…
Happy Winter Solstice! http://en.wikipedia.org/…
Miss iTunes’ “Times played” in #spotify. Am I missing something?

@mskogly Det hjelper hvis man bestiller flere eksemplarer samtidig, men jo… Finnes jo en del alternativer - del gjerne erfaringer!
@mskogly Any publicly available books on Blurb?
@eirikso And rain in Gmail when it’s sun outside? Or sun in Gmail all the time? ;-)

@jonhoem Det betyr at du er helt normal!
Use the magical paper remover, @Miromurr! ;-)
Tried to check out Yahoo! Pipes during a quiet spell at the front desk, but the version of MSIE was too old, and we can’t install software.
@Miromurr They mention Open Source in ch. 6.5, but I can’t see any *discussion* of it. And the conclusion is all about “proprietary”…

This looks cool: http://feedvis.com/?acco… Even cooler if it had a (Norwegian) list of stop-words (words that should not be indexed)
Why should I have lots of idle computing power under my desk, when I can hire what I need from the cloud, when I need it?
Nice thought, @ranginui. Here in Norway we have only got a small handfull of libraries that could do that, I think…
How about something like this, only with the book covers in your library catalogue? http://labs.ideeinc.com/…

@ranginui Ideally, but hardly realistic in libraries with 0.5 or 1 or 2 librarians, I think?
Suggestion for #libpunk anthem: “Declare independence” by Björk, off the album “Volta”.
@ranginui Sure, that’s another big advantage. But a lot of smaller libraries can’t, because they lack the resources (time, knowledge…)
One advantage of Koha and other open source ILSs: You can change your vendor without changing your ILS. And take ALL your data with you.
