Who writes this ode to Web 2.0? No one has asked, but some may wonder. Here are the contributors in alphabetical order (and in haiku). And their favourite book!

My nose in a book
The strongest coffee ever
That’s my happy place

A cryptid myself,
when in need of distraction
I begin to bake.

I had to write a
haiku, this is the result.
Let’s all blame Stephen.

Grimm likes making lists

I read images
Hear the speech in mute spaces
And draw thoughts from them.

J’shuall of Jackanapery
A midnight dreary
What a cliché allusion
Typical really.

Library Serf

but someone has to.

Inscrutable, yet
easily scruted when I

upon a nerd; he sleeps, eats,
but mostly he sleeps.

salad. You don’t win friends with
salad. You don’t win…
