Before LibraryThing

A couple days ago my hunny sent me a link to an article on  He knows that we’ve been learning about new library technologies and thought it would be right up our alley.  The article is about a computer program called Alexandria.

Alexandria came out before LibraryThing.  It’s a program you download onto your computer to catalog your personal library, wishlist, books you’ve loaned out… you get the idea.  You can create a heading for each type and they’re put in alphabetical order.

Linux’s article states that some portions are a little glitchy, but they have every confidence that by its 1.0 release those problems will be resolved.

I haven’t used the program myself, but I thought the article was interesting anyway.  I wonder if Alexandria will catch on or even overtake LibraryThing once its glitches are fixed.
