LibraryThing = awesome

Unofficial Disclaimer: This post is, in part, a plug for my good friend's company, but it's also a plug for something really, really, really cool out there on the web.

I'm reading a really fantastic book on the best-sellers lists right now. You may have already read it, but if you haven't, check it out here. There's a really fascinating section on the educational model used in Sesame Street and how minor tweaks to it revolutionized children's television programming.

Now for the plug part of the blog, LibraryThing is pretty amazing. Tim and Abby (the latter being a close college friend) have reportedly turned traditional library science on its head. While I can't speak to that since I don't know all that much about the traditional system, but I can speak to the awesome new features being added what seems like daily. They've just added a groups feature and I hope you'll all stop by, sign up (I forgot to mention that you do not need to include ANY personal information!), and take a peek.
