Hipper than what you ask.

In the upcoming Fashion and Style section, the NYTimes introduces us to a “Hipper Crowd of Shushers.” Most of the librarians interviewed are in New York which ups the hipness right from the start — in the eyes of a NYTimes writer at least. And really is ordering “girlie” drinks of various colored fruit *really* hip?

But fear not, although I don’t see any UNC grads in the article, I do see some nice quotes from the extremely hip Jessamyn West whose Librarian.net has been hosted on ibiblio for some time now. As you might expect Jessamyn has good things to say.
