As a follow up on my quest for British librarians who are blogging I've identified just over 20. As a first step in bringing us all together I've set up a Google Group to share ideas, thoughts, opinions and just as a way to meet. Google seem a bit freaked that I've created the group and sent out a whole 22 invitations, so they're not releasing the invitations until they've checked it out. While I understand the reasoning behind this, I'm slightly less than impressed. It's not as if I've actually joined people automatically (I can understand why they'd want to look into that), but an invitation is just that - an invitation. I could also understand it if I'd invited hundreds of people - but *22* ?? It's a shame that they've not put as much work into ensuring that people can't create spam weblogs.
However, if you're interested in joining, why not nip along to the group and join directly? It's not a commitment to do anything (though I hope that you'd like to participate), but I hope the group is going to develop into a useful resource.
