Passion: why sites work

A nifty quote from David Weinberger (He's up there on my list of people who write what thrills me.....Edward Tufte, Roy Tennant, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Herman Melville (of course).)

“Sites that work make manifest their passion.” (from Small Pieces Loosely Joined--which I love, love, love...)

How can libraries make manifest their passion? Well, one is not only allowing, but encouraging the authentic voice of our staff & patrons on our Web sites. I about jumped up & clapped at Internet Librarian when Jenny Levine (The Shifted Librarian) said that libraries should care about & use RSS and blogs because they humanize the library and that that libraries should not refer to themselves as "the library" but as "we."
