Mr Wang Becomes A Library Book

Isn't this amazing? The US Library of Congress cites me as an electronic resource on politics in Singapore. I'd be really flattered, except that (1) I personally wouldn't trust myself very much as a library resource, and (2) looking at the list of cited Singapore blogs, I really don't get the impression that the list was carefully chosen.

Political animal.

I was about to say "Holy Cow!" until I realized it's not the U.S. Library of Congress, but the Jakarta's Library of Congress. I don't think it's the same thing as seen on their home page. Still better than nothing... unlike other political sites, you have a way of making bad tasting politics easy to swallow! :)

Found a whole gaggle of SG blogs listed on their site, but the categorisation is a little on the haphazard side. Blogged.

I'm wondering if you understand this excerpt from the about page of the Library of Congres Jakarta Office?

"The mission of the Library of Congress is to make its resources available and useful to Congress and the American people. The Library of Congress also sustains and preserves a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations. Since 1962, the Library of Congress (LC), through its African Asian Acquisitions and Overseas Operations Division, has procured publications in various countries through programs designed to acquire research materials."
