There is a Twitter list for Community Managers!/duzins/community-managers
I spent a little bit this afternoon looking at social media.

I read a bit more and did some exercises in The Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Workbook as well as  The Complete Idiots Guide to Creating a Social Network.

Hue-Man to Close Brick and Mortar Bookstore

This was a significant bookstore in New York.  It really is a shame.  First there were the big bookstore chains that forced many smaller stores to close because it was not possible to run their businesses with a large chain store next to them.  Now online retailing, it is forcing many brick and mortar bookstores to close as well.  Nkiru books which was an African American bookstore in Brooklyn changed their business to a nonprofit community center the Nkiru Center for Education in Culture in 2000.  It had operated as a bookstore since 1976,  I have noticed some other bookstores which are quite successful attached to nonprofit organizations.
