We're ready for Masonic control now, please.

Whenever I talk about LibraryThing among librarians I mention all the libraries that generally fall beneath their radar—churches, historical societies, house museums, birthing centers, Masonic lodges—and how LibraryThing is great for them. In fact, we've done smashingly among churches (and a number of synagogues and temples), and well enough with the others, but I don't think we have a single Masonic lodge!

Something is clearly wrong. Are the Masons against us? Are the Masons supporting Shelfari?

The recent anniversary of the Great Seal of the United States got me thinking. What if we made our sympathies clear? So we've redesigned the Great Seal of LibraryThing (formerly the Orca). Social-Networking World domination here were come.

Translations: "He approves our tags." "A new order of books."

I know you have at least one thelemic temple's library on here. I run across that library every once in awhile, but don't recall the username. I think its in Portland, Oregon.

I second kittent, I would buy that t-shirt.

Maybe the Masons want to be courted...you know, wined and dined before they jump into bed with LT? Or maybe LT should play hard to get.

Yes, that's it, the Masons should send LT chocolate for Valentine's day. I hope they know.

Everything is miscellaneous, or so you might think!

This is a vast improvement over the orca. I approve.

I have to admit, I am a little afraid of Masons, though.

My old lodge (in Athens, Ohio) had a a nice little library -- nothing huge, but a good selection. I'll forward this page along to them to see if I can get something started.
