Hi, NeuroCooking readers. I've been in South American, Central New York, and Northern California a lot lately, and have missed talking with ya'll. But I am back, and offer a question, actually: Are people books? Several European, and now Canadian libraries are going to "allow users to 'check out' human experts with knowledge of particular topics".
I'm a huge advocate of knowledge sharing - especially when done so through story - and welcome an expansive yet practical reinvention of libraries. But...even the best autobiographies have editors. ...Do you think your expertise is fully indexed enough to be useful to those that check you out and wish to peruse your knowledge? ...What if your "reader" is more interested in your captions, or chapter titles, than curling up for an afternoon and digging deeply into your pages?
What do you think, experts and expert readers?
