    So I notice in the microblogging section of your page over ya –> that you mentioned looking for a new job. Which led me to think, “Hey, whatever happened to LibraryThing?” Which led me to do a search for the phrase “LibraryThing” on your site. Which led me to a post from November in which you mentioned finishing up with LibraryThing (and in the comments section someone asked what led to the job change and you said you’d post about it later) But you haven’t. Yet.

    (… and breathe …)

    Is it later yet? 😉 What’s the scoop? Inquiring minds, etc.
