File me under 'S', for 'Super-cool dude'

Ontario's Guelph University creates a library of people.

This is a seriously awesome idea. You find people in the community with interesting life stories, philosophies, careers, and so forth, then let people 'check them out' for a half-hour chat session. I really wish there was something like this in my community—I personally would volunteer my time as "Ted Anderson, complete nerd."

  1. At first I thought this was awesome. But reading the article makes me think this is more the devolution of libraries more than anything else. The great thing about books is that the author doesn't have to be there when you read it. I suppose there's something to be said for interaction, though... hmm...
