Effective Thursday evening, Feb. 25, 2010, I will be closing down Library 2.0 on Ning, http://library20.ning.com . The network has not seen much traffic the last few months and most people requesting to join are posting profiles full of link spam. The return is no longer worth the work. I am not transferring it to anyone else. I want to freeze and archive the contents in some way. Thursday I will be suspending all members of the network. The content will remain but no one will be able to post to it.

"Vampires are always struggling," says Kilpatrick. "In some, that struggle is stronger, in others weaker, but the vampire is torn between wanting to love and be loved by us, and wanting to rip out our throats to get to our blood."
