hi – 06jan

Hi. I gave a new version of an old talk today to about 40 people at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. It’s gotten to to the point that many of the librarians and library students that I speak to in big cities have now heard of blogs, wikis, wireless and RSS. So, instead of just giving a “ten tech tips” talk, I changed it to something a little different Tech Trends in Libraries, the Good News and the Bad News. I’ve been to visit seven libraries in the past two days, apologies for being a little lax on updates here. I’ll be back early next week.

    I attended your presentation in Birmingham and really enjoyed it. I like your perspective that current technologies should be used assuming that they actually can be shown to be of use. I look forward to exploring the hyperlinks from your presentation. Thanks for coming and sharing your knowledge and experience with us in Alabama.
