de retour à #Lyon après le #wmhack à Barcelone, avec dans les bagages (un début de bronzage méditerranéen et) pleins de tickets ouverts pour faire passer @inventaire au niveau supérieur ! Comme disent les copains de chez @Framasoft la route est longue mais la voie est libre !

Arrived at #wmhack! Feel welcome to come talk to me about #inventaire, #WikidataJS tools, or the #OpenKnowledge-backed post-consumerism revolution in general ;)

Thought about using You could keep track of your wonderful books that are in boxes. You can know what you have.

#inventaire needs a tagging system though, then you could tag books by what box they're in.

scanned in 82 #books i'm selling/already read into #inventaire. i fixed the 10 or so books with weird covers.

need to scan in the rest of my non-lending collection soon.

cool! the folks behind #inventaire read their feedback very quickly and respond too.

very excited about this bookshelf project

my book inventory so far!

really need to get my book group onto this website. so much easier than posting pictures of books online for sale.

I will scan all my books in on the weekend. This is fun!
