Why is this relevant to this LJ group? Well, they just introduced discussion groups. And not just any discussion groups, but ones that use LibraryThing functionality. You can easily link the authors and books you're discussing.
And of course, I created a Stuyvesant group over there, mostly after a discussion with a friend regarding how many Stuy people have authored books.
Not much is happening over there now, but I am having fun making lists of names and seeing which ones come up with links to an author page. Feel free to join in.
