I’m sitting in a meeting room in Houston Texas listening to Jenny Levine and Michael Stephens talk about wikis and blogs and rss. I just wrapped up my talk, which is online: Revolting Librarians Redux Review. It went well. The next talk (on paranormal romances, no joke) started in ten minutes so I didn’t get to sit around and gab with people like I usually do. Thanks very much to people who came by and said hello, and especially Jeffrey Levy for handling all of my arrangements and being a thorough and capable host/handler.
I used to do a fancy schedule page, now I’m just going to do a post. Here is where I am planning on being at ALA, starting on Saturday. Thanks to friends, family, and accomplices, I have straightened out my lodging situation. I also have the whole half day Wednesday free after the Council meeting so if anyone else is still in town and wants to explore San Antonio with me, please drop a line or a comment.

Here are the notes for the short talk I gave today: Flickr, Tagging and the F-Word. I’ll see if Jenny’s are around, she had a lot more examples and expanded a lot on this one small area I talked about. Talk was well-received, thanks if you were one of the people in attendance.
