I have a sort-of story about this which I thought about putting on the LITA
blog but decided it was too peripheral. I stopped by the Google booth at the
ALA exhibits and saw a handout about this. I started to pull a copy forward
"Oh, THAT'S for webmasters," said the pretty young thing in the power suit,
pulling back the handout.
"I manage a website," I said.
"Uh-er-uh," she replied, and let me take the handout.
I plan to look at this when I get back.
