Hehe, Book Ninjas

Just read this post at Geekosystems about the ALA's work opposing, well, everything libraries usually oppose.

Now, you should all know about the involvement of libraries and librarians in fighting for and protecting your rights *stares hard* don't you!? (Go educate yourself now if you don't! The link above is a good place to start if you're in the US).

I love the image of us as book ninjas :)! We're the bunned, bespectacled freedom fighters of the information revolution - which by the way has been going on a lot longer than you think. There was a day when the idea of sharing books was as heinous as people seem to think sharing digital content is today, but, guess what, we're the ones still standing - take note ebook publishers.

And thanks for blowing our cover Geekosystem ;)
