Catching Up – CILIP Glasgow & Talis Insight 2007

Just quickly catching up and catching my breath!

My two presentations from the last 7 days are now available on slideshare — both were effectively the same:

There’s also a selection of photographs from both events on Flickr:

Some of my favourite quotes from the various presentations at both events:

  • [about Librarians] “We don’t do cool… we do dull and worthy” (Brian Kelly, UKOLN)
  • [about liability] “There is a case to be made for putting a bag over your head and ignoring it” (Betty Willder, JISC Legal)
  • [about Facebook] “We’ve got to ban Facebook — it’s too popular!” (Brian Kelly, UKOLN)
  • “You’ve got to eat your own dog food sometimes” (Ken Chad)
  • “If you’re not, you should be sharing services” (Ken Chad)
  • “How many of you have looked at a printed encyclopaedia in the last month? [couple of hands are raised] How many of you have looked at Wikipedia in the last week? [lots of hands are raised]” (Peter Godwin)

…next stop — Waterford, Ireland!

[update] For some reason, Slideshare keeps deleting the Talis presentation. I’ve now uploaded it 4 times now, and each time it’s disappeared from the site an hour or so later 😦

The Talis slides can be grabbed instead from here.

  1. Hi Dave
    The link to the Talis Insight 2007 slides are no worky!

  2. Thanks Chris — I’m not sure what happened to the uploaded slides? Anyway, I’ve re-uploaded it now 🙂

  3. Slideshare seem to have something against my Talis slides (they’ve removed them 4 times now), so you can grab them from here instead.
