This is a pirate transmission. The opposing forces have gone off shopping — leaving me a few moments before they return.
I am very encouraged by the initial response to my earlier suggestions to get the conversation about democratic/government information mechanisms in our libraries. I also applaud Jim’s “connecting the dots” about government information secrecy. He is absolutely right — this is a powerful aspect of blogging that shares an even longer history of advocacy and education within our bibliographic institutions — and speaks well to what I imagine the Talk back to democracy! project would do.
Uh-oh, I hear footsteps somewhere, I think the opposing forces have returned. Must end transmission. Will get back to my other points tomorrow.
See you on Day 51.
