I've read a few sad stories recently --- sad for different reasons.
Should I add fake comments to my blog?, asks a Problogger reader. Well, I'm aware of some skullduggery and deception that go on in the blogosphere, but the idea of fake comments is somewhat breathtaking. Reminds me a bit of those agony aunts who make up the problems.
Here is a genuinely sad story: the admirable and worthy librarian and queen of the wikis Meredith Farkas asks Is my book out? Good question. She's having a raw deal, made more poignant if you've been following the gestation and progress of her book via her blog over the past year or more.
Indigestible reading for libraries. Yes, Tim Coates is at it again, telling tales out of school and making everyone sad or cross (or both). There seems to be no way out of this one, a sort of mass paralysis on all sides.
That's it from me for tonight, I will return with some happier content.....sometime.
