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:
- Glasgow – Transformative Technologies – Utilising Web 2.0 in the OPAC
Talis Insight 2007 – OPAC 2.0: Teaching the Pig to Sing
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.
