Greg Schwartz of the Uncontrolled Vocabulary podcast has decided to put the show on a priority readjusting hiatus. He is truly doing the right thing by focusing on his family and hearth. I think that the title of the last (for now show) A Startlingly Poor Grasp of Basic Economics serves as a tribute to the quality and honesty of discussion often featured on the podcast. His show was the right open fourm at the right time of national library professional social networking.
While it is a sad day for those of us fellow podcasters, I suggest that you give a listen to some of the shows. Just about every week, UnVocab focused on a smorgasbord of topics directly related to libraries, library science, knowledge and information management, censorship via a very freewheeling discussion with from a wide sampling of library professionals.
I will speak for myself when I say that without Uncontrolled Vocabulary, there would be no T is for Training and that would stink.
So, thank you Greg for giving the library community your time and skill. I wish you luck reshaping your prioroites and taking care of your family. I raise a freshly made margarita in honor of your choice.
I also hope that those UV shirts don’t become relics and that the show comes back in some form in the near future.
Come back soon, Greg.
