people of ibiblio



Having given the best account I can of the manners and Customs of these people, it will be expected that I should give some account of their religion, which is a thing I have learned so little of that I hardly dare to touch upon it, and should have passed it over in silence, was it not my duty as well as inclination to insert in this Journal every and the least knowledge I may obtain of a People, who for many Centuries have been shut up from almost every other part of the world.


Introducing Lyceum!

This month, Ibiblio is excited to announce Lyceum, a multi-blog derivative of the WordPress blogging system. Conceived in mid 2005, we are now ready to show off what we've come up with. To learn more, take a look at the new website, the demo site, the code, and the public project management site for bug and patch submissions.

Armed and Dangerous - Eric Raymond

Eric S. Raymond

Eric Raymond is an observer-participant anthropologist in the Internet hacker culture. His research has helped explain the decentralized open-source model of software development that has proven so effective in the evolution of the Internet. He is editor of "The New Hacker's Dictionary", the author of "The Cathedral and the Bazaar", and the creator of one of the Internet's most widely used email transport programs, fetchmail.



"When you want to know more but don't know where to look." Groklaw is a comprehensive legal news resource created by Pamela Jones. It is a journalistic enterprise whose aim is to unite people to work together knowledgeably to contribute to the defense of Linux, the kernel, and Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Groklaw contains a archive of every significant element in the history of the SCO v. IBM, SCO v. Novell, SCO v. AutoZone, SCO v. DaimlerChrysler and Red Hat v. SCO lawsuits, including transcripts of the legal documents filed in plain text and transcripts of teleconferences and media events.

Stay Free! magazine

librarian.net logo

One of the first library-related blogs, librarian.net has been providing links and commentary on library issues with a radical librarian perspective. Created in 1999 and maintained by rarin' librarian Jessamyn West, librarian.net has traveled to Australia, the Democratic National Convention, the chambers of the American Library Association Council, and library conferences across the US. Visit the site to learn more about open source library tools, digital rights management, the library funding crisis, and the USA PATRIOT Act.

The Real Paul Jones

A picture of John Paul Jones, not Paul Jones

The Real Paul Jones covers things that involve and/or amuse the Real Paul Jones. While other Paul Joneses get some attention, things having to do with the Real Paul Jones's geekish, poetic and arts interests are what gets the electrons. The Real Paul Jones's blogshares are going for a mere $29.15/share on June 1.


image of Jeffrey Pomerantz

Jeffrey Pomerantz opened his blog by writing, "This will just be me taking the Lyceum software for a spin, as a way of getting some experience in the creation of a blog myself. This will just be me posting things that cross the ol. transom that seem worth posting." Since November of 2004, Jeffrey has been using PomeRantz to share diverse anecdotes not only across the field of library and information science but also on surprising unrelated topics...Star Wars...Moore's Law...the evolution of black squirrels...the artifacts at Oxyrhynchos....
