Second Life reference rocks

today i helped some folks who live in countries where a lot of news is censored, find quality information to answer their immediate needs.

Amy Kearns had an idea a few weeks back about having a 24 hour “twitter librarian” that would answer questions shot into the twittersphere.

Metafilter offers similar reference services (tho not answered specifically by librarians), through a community of users.

THIS. THIS is why i love the possibilities of the web. getting information to people, via avatars, micro-blogging, or discussion forums.
