Some people think jazz improvisation is a free for all -- every musician doing his own thing. But the freedom to create is based on knowledge, discipline and structure -- which may account for Mimi Dionne's finding inspiration in Miles Davis's work to become an information professional. Mimi brings order to digital records chaos and writes about the process for all to learn with her.
Who are you -- in a 140-character tweet? A grateful student of really smart people who tries to keep up with them.
What attracted you to your field -- and what still excites you about it? I was eight. There I was, listening to my Dad’s copy of “Kind of Blue” on the turntable. I was debating whether or not I should sort my notes for a book report on Lady Jane Grey in subject or alphabetical order, and … voila! I thought to myself, “I love this. I want to do this for the rest of my life.”
I love what I do -- and I’m very grateful to CMSWire for the opportunity to self-express in its forum. CMSWire allows me to answer the questions that interest me most about the discipline, which I appreciate.
