Celine:
Reading something and knowing that the character in the story's based on you. It's both flattering and disturbing at the same time.
Jesse:
Yeah, how is it distrubing?
Celine:
I don't know. Just being part of someone else's memory. Seeing myself through your eyes.

There is a secret bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting. Consider this utterly commonplace situation: a man is walking down the street. At a certain moment, he tries to recall something, but the recollection escapes him. Automatically he slows down. Meanwhile, a person who wants to forget a disagreeable
incident he has just lived through starts unconsciously to speed up his pace, as if he were trying to distance himself from a thing still too close to him in time.

In existential mathematics, that experience takes the form of two basic equations: the degree of slowness is directly proportion to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting.

What's In A Name? Survey -- Ending (Possibly) Today

knowhomo:

Note: This survey is set for 1,000 responses (max). In the first 24 hours, we’ve had 703 of you share your insight. It looks like we will cap out this evening. If you’d like to participate, we recommend sooner than later. Also, if you run an LGBTQ* website and feel you have friends, family, and followers who may provide their own time, it’s not to late to share this and get credited in the graphics at the end of the month.

Keep On, Keeping On! - Rebecca

KNOWhomo’s Quarterly Survey

After a gathering with friends last month, we started to discuss what “labels” we use when describing ourselves to our peers and other members of the LGBTQ* family. There was also discussion about terms that are slowly disappearing from our lexicon (or evolving into a more inclusive term).

The KNOWhomo.tumblr Team would love your insight and we have created a brief survey (3 questions in length).

The survey is anonymous but we ask that you answer it sincerely. We also ask that if you are comfortable sharing the link with your peers, please do so. We would like to break 1000 individuals and create a Tumblr KNOWhomo series of graphs/infographs. We can only do this with your help.

If you are a prominent Tumblr page (representing the LGBTQ* community, not a personal page), PM us your page so we can credit those who get the information out. 

Keep On, Keeping On!

"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"

"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."
