it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superpatron!

What do you call a library patron who is a tireless library promoter and a technophile to boot? Library fanboy? What if you found out that same library fan was creating little scripts to post-process library catalog content into, say, a display of the book covers of all new nonfiction titles and started his own pro-library blog? I guess you’d call him a Superpatron which is also the new blog by library enthusiast Ed Vielmetti who has been keeping his main blog, Vacuum, pretty much as long as I can remember.

    Thanks, it was fun to do. To build a prototype was six lines of code, mostly because the AADL had already done all the hard work by having an RSS feed of new entries w/images in it.

    One commenter called it a “bibliotekhack” which was lovely.
