One New Thing: Longer ISBNs?

From LISnews: It seems that ISBN numbers will be changing from 10 to 13 digitsin about two years’ time. Do we really have to update all the 10-digit ISBNs to 13 digits? It’s conceivable we might run out of 10 digit numbers…but why change the existing ISBNs to 13 digits? Won’t that just cause of lot of confusion within library and publisher database systems?

Friday link: this is very frustrating to play along with, but brilliant to watch. Just Letters is like those magnetic letters you stick on your fridge and make words from. If you had about 100 people in your kitchen, that is.
