Today was mid 60s and sunny - gorgeous day.  We have lots of dogs, bikes, and laptops here. Mountain biking was invented in Marin County after all! :)

Our City Council approved this smoking ban at least night's meeting. I, for one, approve entirely.

I don't know. I was voting for a national strike a while back...we're too scattered and disparate and beholden to different parent organizations to make that work. Unless ALA takes a VERY strong lead, fuck all is going to happen without a massive grassroots uprising at the individual librarian level (which I am not at all opposed to).

Story
Tagline
Librarian, author, speaker, iconoclast, and proud geek girl.
Introduction

Sarah Houghton is best known as the author of the award-winning LibrarianInBlack.net.  She is also the Director for the San Rafael Public Library.

Sarah is a big technology nerd and believes in the power of libraries to change lives.  Combined, they make a fearsome cocktail.

Sarah has been called an iconoclast, a contrarian, a future-pusher, and a general pain in the ass.  She takes great pride in each.   

Her first book came out in 2010: Technology Training in Libraries and she is a frequent speaker for online and realspace worldwide events for libraries and other institutions.

I can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue, just like Audrey on Twin Peaks. Yes, for reals.
