From the comments to this post by Michael Blowhard over at Librarian’s Place, entitled "Bill Kauffman, an introduction (and Dave Lull)":

Hello? Knock-knock? Is this Dave’s place? Dave-who-doesn’t-tell-Michael-he’s-blogging-now? That Dave?
2. Dave Lull | October 15th, 2006 at
Well, Michael, I’m not really blogging. I’ve just sort of inspired the delightful Maxine to set up this blog by inundating her with pointers to some of the objects of her postings. She makes me feel like a blogger’s “muse.”

Dave, what a lovely thing to write! Thank you so much.
And, reciprocally, my reading has been greatly widened by all the articles you’ve been sending me over the past year. I have learned and enjoyed a lot that I’d never have come across on my own. And when you send me an article that I’ve already read (or read a similar one on the topic), which I would say happens about 10 per cent of the time, that makes me smile.

So this is what they call networking, eh? Dave has been sending me lots of articles about diabetes II and related stuff. (More or less.) I know several of these delightful cross-pollinators (George Lessard comes to mind.) and they may be creating a new society.
And here are some comments from another post on Librarian’s Place, this one entitled "Sound science or sound bite?"; by Michael Bugeja:

Thank you again, Dave Lull. This connects so many things I have been thinking about over the last few days.
2. Dave Lull | October 16th, 2006 at
And thank you for letting me know, Clare. It’s gratifying for us ‘cross-pollinators’* to find out that our work sometimes leads to fruition.
*Thanks to Prairie Mary for the appellation
The Internet, and blogging, for me, has certainly built a wonderful jewel of a community. Ten years ago, technology was considered to be a depersonalising threat — but, in enabling this new society, the opposite has happened. Who could have imagined it? (If anyone can answer that question, Dave Lull can.)
