This is the end

I am officially concluding my active participation in Library Preservation 2.  I was pretty sure this was going to be the case when I announced its hiatus, but wanted to give myself a few months to think it over.

Working on this blog has been a great treat for me, but it, along with my related projects – 5 Days of Preservation tumblr, and the Preservation Imperative podcast (which I am also stopping) – were all done on my free time and whatever work time I “borrowed”. I am no longer driven to think about preservation day and night.

I will keep this site online for a while because people do keep visiting it every day. (I don’t want to take it down only to have some Russian hucksters “resurrect” it a year later like happened to my first blog.)

I really enjoyed taking the time to reflect and ponder ideas and issues and writing my quirky - and some generously said "thoughtful" - responses to them. I am continuing to do this, just not around preservation topics.

Thanks for everything.
