the library is the arsenal

Alex Wright is super nice and cool

Alex's talk was good and I don't think I sounded to stupid when I introduced him, but I did strictly read from the paper in front of me. I wish you guys had been there to ask good questions (you guys besides Jen, who was there, obvi) but who wants to spend their Friday night at a lecture? Apparently Jean Hines and not many others.

Afterwards, Alex, the SILSSA officers and I went for drinks, where we talked about libraries a little, but mostly information architecture and other cool stuff like that. There was talk of Alex teaching 651 at Pratt. I think the consensus on that class is that we need more professors teaching it for variety's sake.
