talks I’ve given

I like to give talks on the intersection of libraries, technology and politics. Specifically…

  • Rural issues such as 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.
  • Open source software such as Firefox and Open Source OPACs

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.

Here are my most recent talks. Previous talks are on the talks archive page. * indicates keynote
