Code4Lib conference

February 23, 2008

I am heading off to another conference, this time to learn instead of teach. Code4Lib 2008 is in Portland, Oregon, next week. I’ll be posting here from the sessions.

If anyone is interested in stacking the deck for next year, I’m not above a shameless plug for a vote for South Florida for next year’s conference. If you have a login account at, go here to vote (note, some firewalls block the port in this url – leave a comment here if you are having problems). If you don’t have a login account at the code4lib site, you can get one here.


Internet Librarian 2007

November 2, 2007

Back from California, and the IL 2007 Conference. Posts from the sessions are on the NCR Library Sandbox. (Look in the category links for conferences) They are also listed under “Recent Posts” on the right side of the page.

Although I didn’t get to all of the programs I wanted to, I did get to Greg Notess’ Search Engine Strategies, Danny Sullivan’s The Future of Search, and a very fast Next Generation Library Interface presentation by Marshall Breeding during the lunch break. Lots of good stuff all around.


October 29, 2007

I am in Monterey for the Internet Librarian 2007 Conference. I will be posting from here to the NCR Library Sandbox for those interested.

Before coming here, I spent the weekend with my brother nearby, who was a great tourguide. Pictures of some of the stuff we did in Mountain View are here, Muir Woods and San Francisco are here, and the coast (Ano Nuevo) are here.

Pictures from Monterey are here.

Up next: more conferences

September 16, 2007

October 29-31 is the Internet Librarian 2007 conference. I’ll be part of the panel on Information Literacy in the Public Library, Monday afternoon. There’s a preliminary program here.

Meanwhile, the Florida Association of Computer User Groups has their Fall Conference on October 6, in Orlando, Florida. I will be leading a roundtable discussion on blogging.

Next Conference

July 13, 2007

I will be at Seflin’s Energize 2.0 conference in Miami next week. I’ll be doing the part about blogs, along with Robin Kear, who is doing the wiki part. Like the last conference, this is for librarians.

It seems blogs are suddenly a hot topic. This is the second of four presentations I am doing this year (so far!) on blogs and blogging.

So yeah, between conferences and the day job, I’ve been a little busy. I’ll get back to the disconnected tips soon.
