my public talks

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 the USA PATRIOT Act, 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 meĀ Here are my most recent talks. Previous talks are on the talks archive page. A * indicates keynote
