NYT: A Hipper Crowd of Shushers

New York Times article A Hipper Crowd of Shushers. Extra points for mentioning both Library 2.0 and Jessamyn West (LT: jessamyn ).
Jessamyn West, 38, an editor of “Revolting Librarians Redux: Radical Librarians Speak Out” a book that promotes social responsibility in librarianship, and the librarian behind the Web site librarian.net (its tagline is “putting the rarin’ back in librarian since 1999”) agreed that many new librarians are attracted to what they call the “Library 2.0” phenomenon. “It’s become a techie profession,” she said.

I personally like the idea of the dewey decimal drink names...That should be like the introduction to library school, and your exit exam as well :-)

Yes, very cool. I read it in my paper this morning and tore it out for a young friend, a mother of two little girls, who is wondering if it might be a good field for her. I've been encouraging her. I love being a librarian and was a new one just as the web was getting going. But I'm not at all young, and I'm so glad that it's becoming hip.
