I'm addicted to Hacker News as well, and for a long time I've wanted something similar for librarians. I even worked with my colleagues at In the Library with the Lead Pipe to try to start such a community, using SlinkSet (since acquired by Posterous) as the backend. We had some activity for a while, but never really got it going and ultimately decided close the site rather than fight the spammers.

So... what's it going to take for Library News to make it?
