I'm a bit late discussing this issue but would appreciate your feedback on this. Back in February, Michael Gorman, President -elect of the American Library Association wrote an article for Library Journal and denounced blogs and blog culture as a useful tool for libraries.
The response by the "blog people" Gorman disparages has been overwhelmingly negative towards his narrow vision.
I am a member of the American Library Association. I have decided that under Gorman's tenure of 2005-2006 I will resign my membership. I also have the urge to ring his doorbell and run.
There are many wonderful library related blogs to discover. It's a shame that someone in a leadership role in my profession fails to recognize their importance.
