I’ve written on my own blog about my feelings as a Borders employee and the company’s collapse. In this post I intend to dissect why Borders failed, and what it means for books, bookstores, and libraries. There are a lot of factors that led to Big Red Books’ down fall, there are a lot of factors that led to its success. These factors affect us in library land as well, so they bear looking into.

We are proud to introduce a shortcast series to the hacklibschool empire. TMI (Two Minute Insights) will be a semi-regular podcast sort of thing where a member of the HackLibSchool team will call a LIS professional with one question and a two minute time slot for that person to answer. The goal is to get short, interesting insights to the life of someone working in the field, and also to move the conversation out of text and into different media. (Basically, I got tired of reading all the time, and I listen to lots of podcasts.)
