  1. 1. Notice 1. Everything I say is my own personal opinion. 2. This is a work of fiction. Any allusion to real library products (living or dead), events or practices is purely intentional. 3. This session’s information entropy has been estimated at H = -0.6. This means you will probably walk out of this session knowing less than you do now. You’re welcome. 4. By reading the statements above, you have agreed to transfer ownership and distribution rights of all your thoughts about this session to me. Yes, even your shocked reaction to this very sentence. These thoughts may be licensed back to you for the purposes of reflecting on the crushing weight of reality on your fragile illusions , tweeting, or plotting revenge, for a very reasonable fee (see item 2 above). 5. Don’t take any of this too seriously. Obviously.
