Things that Make You Go Hmm…

Wondering if the rise in gas prices that seems to trickle down to everything from shoes to groceries will cause a dent in attendance at conferences.
With ALA’s annual conference set to begin today I’ll be interested in hearing if their attendance is up or down from the past conferences. (Although many of the folks I follow on Twitter are going so maybe it isn’t a factor just yet?) I know that at Computers in Libraries this year they claimed their highest ever number of attendees. But that was before gas prices started to creep up, up, up.
Will libraries be forced to just send staff to local conferences or will they limit the number going to conferences further away or just stop going altogether?
