TIL that our library system has been (kinda randomly) forgiving fines for the last 15 years. Apparently the bug(ish) has been fixed.
In the system meeting, I noted that the bug’s practice was within my moral and belief system so I didn’t have any problem NOT fixing it.
It's starting. The machines
are becoming sentient. And their first act is to begin forgiving library fines.
@ron apparently it started 15 years ago but nobody noticed and that's kind of scary...
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles. Many of us are Twitter refugees looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media.
