Rory Litwin of Library Juice is calling it quits after nearly eight years.
Well, actually, that’s not quite true. He’s shutting down Library Juice as an e-journal. He’ll return with a Library Juice blog.
As I noted in a comment at Library Stuff (where I saw the story), this is one more in a surprising wave of temporary and permanent shutdowns over the last month or two. I’m not sure whether there’s something more significant happening here (I’m inclined to make a comment about deep cynicism at certain levels of leadership infecting the rest of us, but I try to avoid politics). Maybe I’ll write a Blather about it; maybe not.
Meanwhile–Rory’s always been considerably to my left, and also a good writer. I’ve appreciated Library Juice even when I’ve disagreed with what’s there. I’ll certainly add the new blog to Bloglines…
