I’ve been meaning to blog about Greg Schwartz’s decision to table Uncontrolled Vocabulary. (Walt Crawford provides a list of some other former and current “unique, passion-driven experiments in non-institutional, freely available “periodical media” serving the library field–making a distinction between things that appear on a fairly regular basis and the hundreds of blogs and other wholly irregular sources.”
However, I haven’t had the time to blog — or think — enough about Greg’s decision. Which probably tells you something.
Thinking about: LISjobs.com, The Tech Static, Beyond the Job, Info Career Trends, the LISjobs.com forums, and this blog… I’m more entangled with librarianship now than when I was working as a librarian, but not so much getting paid for these “experiments,” and it’s taking time away from both the kids and the work that I do get paid for. Something here might have to go, but how to choose?
I’m glad that Greg is getting so many positive comments about his decision — which I also wholly support (and understand!).
