it’s great when someone blogs your talks

I’m on my way out of Madison, Wisconsin tomorrow. I had a great time at WLA, both giving a few talks and hanging out with some cool librarians. Tasha Saecker blogged both of my talks and you can read her notes on my talks, as well as the talks themselves.

Sensible Technology Trends in Libraries: my notes/slides, Tasha’s notes

Small Libraries and the Digital Divide: my notes/slides, Tasha’s notes

on the road for the next few weeks

I’ll be doing a lot of work-related travelling over the next few weeks. I encourage anyone who will be at any of these conferences to stop by and say hello.

  • Wisconsin Library Association – I’ll be doing a digital divide talk and a tech tips talk this Friday. Possibly the best conference ever, according to one blog. It’s at a weird resort-like place. I will be met at the airport by someone in a safari get-up.
  • Hawaii Library Association – Hawaii is the only US state I’ve never been to. The second to last one on my list, Alaska, I crossed off in 1997 sometime. I’ll be discussing high tech on a shoestring, and tech support tips for reference librarians on the 11th of November.
  • Michigan Library Consortium – a workshop with Aaron Schmidt and Meredith Farkas about blogs, wikis and IM. I’ll be doing the blogs part on the 15th.

Yeah, it’s a lot of travelling. I even got a new haircut. After this I’m settling down and hunkering down for the winter and focusing on writing and planning for 2007.
