The one thing that bugs me as a librarian about the internet is the temporality of it all. Here one day, gone the next. (I will have to do something with my blogroll.) Sometimes you read something that is valuable to you. Actually it is more than valuable. It forms you. It becomes part of you. God spoke through a stranger and you heard the King of the Ages vibrate in the words. Sometimes, the wisdom of fellow wanderers are staggering and their intimacy with God like sunshine on a cold morning. Some of us shared our grief and struggles and those reading found out that we are not alone in our pain.
But unfortunately it is on the internet and it could be gone tomorrow 😦
One of the series that came from the blogosphere was “The people formerly known as …” It started with Bill Kinnon and spread from there. It is slowly starting to disappear from the internet and I thought I would like to prolong some of the posts in the series. Especially those that meant a lot to me at the time. So, I collected them and made a PDF document that you can download. I believe they are still relevant and perhaps we can read them together 🙂
