Not only does Derik Badman have a ridiculously cool name, he also publishes a twice weekly webcomic called Things Change, writes about comics (mostly), contributes to a very promising new library blog, I just noticed that he creates warm & fuzzy feelings with University students on Facebook too.
Besides writing a random post about Derik, I really did want to highlight this great interaction. Let’s be clear, the interaction happened because a librarian and student developed a good relationship face to face. The student, though, moved it online, giving the relationship significance and exposure.
Note: I erased the name of the student and also confirmed with Derik that he was okay with me posting his otherwise protected Facebook status update.
