I like to give talks on the intersection of libraries, technology and politics. My main blog is at librarian.net.
- Rural library technology and the digital divide
- Copyright, fair use, and DRM in libraries
- Policy issues such as SOPA, CIPA, privacy, and legislation around social software.
I enjoy public speaking and I’ve been doing it for over a decade nationally and internationally. If you would like me to give a talk, please don’t hesitate to read more about what I do my faq or my resume, or just get in touch with me.
