For some reason, LJ posted a list of Friday’s “Top Tweets.” After reading the list, I thought, if those were the top, what were the bottom tweets? For the most part, Twitter seems a wasteland of vacuity and narcissism, and I wasn’t surprise at all by the #ala10 tweets.
I’m still busily eating and drinking on someone else’s dime at ALA, so I don’t have much time. But, here are some of my favorite “bottom tweets” from Sunday.
First ALA mishap, broken shoes. Hope hubby arrives in time with new shoes before my signing!
OMG, I hope so, too!
Sweet teeth — cupcakes are served! Visit ALA, booth 2103 at 3 pm!
Great! That’s just what most librarians need–more sweets! I hope they’re cooked with lard!
One last meander around the exhibition hall, then happily homewards… til tomorrow
Thank you for updating us with this exciting bit of news, and then making it even better with that little tease at the end.
Understand the primary purpose pf your website. They shod grow relationships
Thanks for the tip, but I think you meant that they “grow shoddy relationships,” or something like that.
Stephen Abram breaks it down http://bit.ly/drbSIz Libraries have to promote their people
Drops of wisdom from the Master! Why hasn’t anyone else ever thought of that! My God, what a genius! Thank you for sharing! Do all you non-attendees see what you’re missing now? Great stuff!
“The 21st century is no place for timid librarians.”
Tis a pity, because that’s mostly what we’ve got. Timid, but very enthusiastic in a milquetoast sort of way.
exhibitors seem pretty book-centric.
Gee, what a surprise, since that what libraries still buy the most of. Books, shelves, carts, book tape, preservation supplies, the list goes on. If you don’t like it, go to an engineering conference.
People are tweeting how energised & jazzed they are from #ala10 BUT it doesn’t mean squat unless you DO something when you get back home.
That’s true. I had a great time in DC, though not at any ALA events. When I get home, a long nap is in order, though. Then…back to business as usual. That’s what I plan to DO!
i move to the cloud, move to the devices, go hand in hand
Alright, I’ve got a hot date for tonight, so I must go. ALA Annual is just busy, busy, busy.
