If you've enjoyed these toots and would like an exasperation-triggered migraine feel free to read the whole article here:
@hugh Thanks, I hate it
@alissa well you can't say I didn't warn you.
@hugh they had me at 'crowdsourced truth (like Wikipedia)' 😂 🤣 😭
@alissa If you're really going to read this all the way through you're going to love the twist at the end.
@hugh 'You do not need an intermediary referee, like a library, to govern the sharing of things like books, tools, or services. It could greatly limit the role of integrated library systems or revolutionize how cataloging works.'
What the actual fuck is wrong with these people
@hugh 👏🏻 blockchain 👏🏻 will 👏🏻 not👏🏻 fix 👏🏻 your 👏🏻 catalogue 👏🏻
@hugh omg of course the one saying all the particularly dumb shit was the sole dude they interviewed. I think I need some peppermint tea
@hugh that was delightfully appalling, cheers
@alissa you're welcome - brought to you by ALIA Weekly. I did enjoy how they admitted at the end that it's all a complete sham with no practical application.
@hugh lol of course it was in ALIA Weekly. I wonder if they actually read the things they put in their newsletters
@hugh actually I might add that to my PD scheme listing, at least that way I'd get something out of it 😂
