I feel like every time I don't want to use internet solutions for meetings or work (because I'm so sick of it and I do so bad using it) people act like I'm insulting their efforts. At this point I would just rather not communicate with anyone rather than continuing to feel completely incompetent

Some people I know run an anarchist library. It's pretty cool, many nice titles. I did have one thought that I would like to hear from librarians here about. They have taken up the convention of having a separate category bookshelf labeled as "books we don't agree with". I'm totally willing to just respect that stance but I want to know what other people think about that kind of thing. (like I found one book in that shelf that I'm pretty sure aligns with my views)

is anyone aware of any good taxonomy/systematics meme board?

Have any of you read any good cli-fi I might want to put in my radar?

currently reading 

The Ministry of the Future, the new book by Kim Stanley Robinson. Two chapters in and it's super intense, one of my favourite cli-fi writers for sure.
