Talking LibraryThing and library things with Tim Spalding

An interview with Mr LibraryThing Tim Spalding.

Part One: An introduction to Tim and LibraryThing.

(6.2 MB, 6:38 minutes)

See the LIANZA 2009 Blog information on Tim:

Tim started LibraryThing in 2005 as a pet project to catalogue his books. Since then over 700,000 members have catalogued over 40 million books on LibraryThing, and whole new form of book life has been created.  But of course LibraryThing is about more than just books, its sense of community … is one of its strong points.

The stats are on the move – now more than 850,000 book lovers have joined Library Thing…
