Maybe one day I'll become a librarian

Apparently, it's now cool to be a librarian. Kara Jesella's recent New York Times piece "A Hipper Crowd of Shushers" confirms that information fluency isn't just for geeks. Or at least that geeks can sometimes do cool things, like get tattoos and order drinks according to their Dewey Decimal book-title equivalence?

Some people have too much stuff in their brains.

"Sorry if I talk in Dewey" - Nice! Seems like every job is getting cool... What's getting uncool? Maybe lawyers and doctors will get uncool... Hmmmm?

Uh huh. Lawyers, doctors, race car drivers, hockey players are out. Funky glasses and nerdy jargon, however, shall ever be in!
