O failure, where is thy sting?

The Twitter hashtag #FailShare is accumulating instances of failed library projects, so that we can learn from them, and also, I imagine, to take the sting out of failure (on the grounds that sting-y failure makes for stingy ideas).

And, a brand new wiki page has gone up on the same topic.

(BTW, while on the topic of bad/good puns Frank Nugent once dismissed a disappointing play by the American playwright Clifford Odets with the line, “Odets, where is thy sting?”)

I twittered a pun last night of which I am oddly proud: “If I ever ran into Heisenberg, I wouldn’t know if I should wave or point.”

JohnJoseph twittered back this rim shot.
