Cluetrain Manifesto #95: We are waking up and linking to each other. We are watching. But we are not waiting.
I honestly laughed out loud at this comment at FRL concerning another ALA kerfuffle about conference meetings being posted online:
In an effort to establish its street cred as a hip organization, ALA is going to an all-flash mob scheduling process. 30 minutes before the meeting, they’ll send a bulletin to all their myspace.com friends telling them where to show up. Thomas Dowling
I laughed first when I read the post, again when I read the messages on the ALACOUN list, and a third time at Thomas Dowling’s wonderful explanation above. Something tells me this won’t last long due to mass disobedience (or simple ignorance of the plan). Steve Lawson
