On Friday I attended the afternoon sessions of the Loclib conference. I was really keen to see Jessamyn West and wasn't disappointed.
There were many to whom the whole blogging thing seemed very new and confusing, and couldn't quite see where this would fit into public libraries. A lot of us are still hamstrung by our organisations who are worried about "uncontrolled" information about them being published on the web - but I think that things will change gradually. The Act Public Library Blog is a really good Australian example of how it could work.
Jessamyn spoke about blogging as if it was no big deal and emphasized the social side of the technology.
I was lucky that I knew about some of this stuff from MPPOW - thanks CW!
I also bumped into some non-public librarians who'd crashed the session - it was good to meet Kathryn again, too.
One of the best things about conferences is hearing of new things (well, new to me) which I checked out when I got home.
