Web 2.0 & Libraries

Karen Coombs started out the session on Innovative Uses of Web 2.0 Technologies by sharing some basic principles of Web 2.0. Radical Decentralization An example of centralization is people sending content to one web person and that person making the necessary web edits. Decentralization is the opposite – letting the people change the necessary pages as they need. The perfect example of this is Wikis & Blogs – giving the  [ Read More ]

Shared Innovation

Today I had the pleasure of getting to hear Paul Miller from Talis talk again. You may remember my enthusiastic post from CIL last year. His talk was not titled Shared Innovation – but it was a lot about Shared Innovation (and the talk had the same title as at CIL so I didn’t want to title another post with the same name ) Paul reminds us that library 2.0  [ Read More ]

IL2006 – Keynote Day 1 – J. A. Jance

Judy Jance was the speaker for today’s Keynote – and while I haven’t read her books (or heard of her before today ) I’m so glad I got to hear her talk!!

She has lived through so much and had such amazing experiences and that  [ Read More ]

The reception was hosted by InfoToday for the SLA members because they had just held their board meetings here in Monterey (I think I got that right) and the food and wine was great!! The best part  [ Read More ]

The Smallest Airport

So I have arrived here in Monterey (with more bags than I care to tell you about). Turns out that Monterey has the smallest airport I have ever been in! You get off the plane by walking down these scary steps and then you have to walk a while (outside – it was a nice day) before you get into the terminal – and by terminal I mean one room  [ Read More ]
