  1. If I were an artist, I would be on that! But right now, I don’t know of a manga for Twilight. The closest thing is the manga style covers on the Japanese versions of the book.

  3. Dear Nicki,

    I’m writing a paper about barriers of participation to web 2.0 among librarians. I’m using libsuccess.org as an example and I found you there. I’m wondering if you’d share your thoughts on the matter with me or alternatively have already written about it/given talks on the subject and would like to share it with me?

    My questions would be

    1) What are the reasons librarians give for not wanting to use/participate in web 2.0?
    2) What could be done to overcome these barriers? (What have you done, if you have had colleagues like that?)

    Thanks in advance,
    Néné
