Walt on Meebo Rooms

You would think that Walt has paid me off with a copy of his latest book in return for my blogging about him so much lately, but I just had to link to his post on the spam that getting into Meebo Rooms, plus reprint this quote:

Postscript at the next coffee break: A new password-protected room has been created. In the real world, I don’t much want to live in a gated community (and we don’t). But in the real world, you don’t get people storming through neighborhoods at 60mph throwing bags of…well, whatever…onto every window once an hour, or there would be a lot more gated communities.”

Too funny Walt. If life/work wasn’t so busy lately (I’ve been up after 12:30AM for the past 3 weeks or so), I’d be all over the LSW Meebo room. Alas, I’m not, but will hopefully join soon.

    Thanks…although it actually wasn’t funny at all if you were there–and particularly, I think, for people who had, say, light reference-desk shifts and didn’t have the media window closed. Porn sites popping up unasked every two minutes: Not fun.

    Disclaimer: I haven’t sent free copies of my book to anyone. So far. And disclaiming disclaimers? So 20th century.

    Pay offs? Well, as librarians we have to supplement our incomes somehow.

    The only error here is hitting up on another librarian. I don’t see how it enriches the profession. It’s no net gain.
