Can anyone tell me where the Table of Contents is located on this page? Is it that they just don't want anyone to find out?

It had to happen. The long-reigning champ of "Uber Platitude" may be about to cede its title to a brawney new upstart.

Long a favorite on the Sincerity Circuit, the "Conversation Schtick" received a blow to its mid-drifts after trend-setting The Onion declared: "Let the conversation end."

This set the stage for a possible upset in the "Platitude Sweepstakes" with new-comer "Disruptive innovation" (child of plain old Innovation) about to gain the upper-hand.

Its use among geek commentators to indicate innovation that changes everything (as opposed to innovation that leaves everything exactly the same), is growing so disruptively that it looks set to overtake rival "Conversation" in no time.

Totally Cool : LibSite Image Gallery!

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 4/14/07 (4:46pm)

go to LibSite.org With all the sites coming in on LibSite, I thought it'd be nice to set up some kind of image gallery. People could see thumbnails of the sites they're sending in grouped together like on Google Images or some image database.

Well, as it turns out, it was easier putting it together than I thought.

So check it out: "LibSite Image Gallery..."

C&RL : The Missing Pages?

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 4/4/07 (11:46am)

Anyone else notice this? I was in the midst of reading "The Evolution of the Academic Research Library During the 1960's" in the lastest issue of College & Research Libraries, when the article suddenly dropped off the face of the earth.

The words on the following page didn't make sense. Then I looked at the page numbers: '104' on the page I was reading and '121' on the new page.

Opps, looks like they let something slip.
