I totally failed to spot that the Library 2.0 Idea Generator has now created over 100,000 ideas!
I’ve no idea what the 100,000th idea actually was, but I hope it was “Build an Idea Generator and sell it to Google for $1,000,000”.
Around about 1% of the ideas were of high enough quality that the viewer added it to the whiteboard. I gave up counting how many of them reference Michael Gorman, but here’s a few that caught my eye…
– investigate Michael Gorman and use him to replace all of your librarians
– closely scrutinize Michael Gorman and then paint him purple
– create Stephen Abram just to annoy Michael Gorman
– write a song about Michael Gorman just to confuse Michael Gorman
– enhance Michael Gorman for the Millennials
– repurpose Michael Gorman and then replace him with a robot
– replace Michael Gorman using Firefox
– add the Netflix model just to annoy Michael Gorman
…poor Mr Gorman — what did he ever do to you?
I must admit, most of my favourite ideas involve the Library 2.0 World movers and shakers…
– vigorously shake Lorcan Dempsey and upload the result to YouTube
– invert Lorcan Dempsey and then paint him purple
– closely scrutinize Leslie Burger and then visualise her as a tag cloud
– digitize Meredith Farkas and observe her from a suitable distance (see here for the result)
– write a song about Walt Crawford and publicise it on your plasma screen
– fall in love with Stephen Abram and embed him into a portal
– impress Michael Stephens and upload the result to YouTube
– podcast about your podcasts and then blame Michael Stephens when it doesn’t work
– unlock the latent forces within Jenny Levine and then run through your library screaming ”it’s all too much!”
If you’ve got a favourite idea from the whiteboard, or if you’ve actually been inspired by one of the ideas, please let me know!
