Geek the Library is a site meant to promote libraries, to emphasize that they need our support, and continued funding. I liked the concept instantly, so I decided my thing is “I geek word origins.” I wrote up a little explanation and submitted it, but then I read other entries… and then all talk about their geekery and then how the libraries are vital for supporting their continued geekery. What a foolish panda. Anyway, it seems like a good site, and I haven’t done anything for the site or libraries recently, but I think it’s a good angle to try to attack the problem.

I don’t know how I heard about this site, but it initially reminded me of “It’s a Sickness” which has lovely Alan Cumming as its MC, which makes it extra wonderful.
