Awful Nomenclature of the Week

I’m attending the DeLange Conference on Emerging Libraries–an excellent conference with lots of prominent speakers–but I have to share this pet peeve.  The phrase that has been used by two different speakers to describe the environment we’re currently living in: “the brewing perfect storm of opportunity.”  I count three mixed metaphors there.  Blech.

  1. I found your post through Technorati – you appear to be the only one who has blogged anything at all about this conference. I had wanted to attend due to the range of speakers, but could not due to schedule conflicts but was hoping that I could catch stuff through blogs. Is this a non-blogging crowd? Any other blogs I should look at for more info?
