Thursday, November 13, 2008 Dewey Decimal System Meme

Thanks to Gerard Saylor for the link. Dewey Decimal System Meme: "This will convert your name to a class listed in the Dewey Decimal System. That's right... somewhere between 000 (Generalities) and 999 (Extraterrestrial worlds) you have a place, and through the magic of internet we can find it through random arbitrary letter decoding. Plus this gives me a chance to saw that libraries are freaking awesome and we need more. So there."

Bill Crider's Dewey Decimal Section:

004 Data processing & computer science

000 Computer Science, Information & General Works

Encyclopedias, magazines, journals and books with quotations.

What it says about you:
You are very informative and up to date. You're working on living in the here and now, not the past. You go through a lot of changes. When you make a decision you can be very sure of yourself, maybe even stubborn, but your friends appreciate your honesty and resolve.
