LibraryThing Flash-Mob Cataloging Party

   February 17th, 2009

Update: Check out some photos from the day.

librarything logoLibraryThing'ers are having a second flash-mob cataloging party this Saturday, Feb 21st, at the Rhode Island Audubon Society.

The first one was at St. John's Episcopal Church just north of Boston - it looked like fun, but I missed it because I worked that Saturday. This time it looks to be a smaller group, so if anyone is interested and in the area, read the details on the LibraryThing blog and get in touch with Sonya.

It should be a lot of fun, a chance to meet other LibraryThing people, and the Audubon resources will be inherently interesting. Dorky, I know, but I'm looking forward to it. Plus, any reason to go to Rhode Island is a good one.

    when will be having one in L.A.?

    Great idea – contact LibraryThing and offer to be their left coast office. I think something like this just need an organizer and lots of volunteers (and cuecats).

    Tim just announced the creation of a Flash-Mob cataloging group, to hopefully promote flash-mobs in other parts of the country – like L.A.
