Putting the torque in Torkington

It seems to me that using Web 2.0 data and Extensible Cataloging are just what Torkington (and I) mean by “making the catalog better” and “and thinking.” We don’t need to try to jam new features awkwardly onto the existing OPAC, we need to make a better OPAC, and this is a good start.

And as an aside, why is it that phrases made into acronyms with words featuring “ex” as beginning characters of the first word always use X as the acronym letter for that word? Is it just cooler to shorten “extensible” (in XML and XC) to X than to E? (#OCD #GrammarNazi)
