It’s that time of year again. The cherry blossoms are out, the boys of summer are playing again and Computers in Libraries comes to Crystal City, VA. My favorite conference of year and originally I thought I wouldn’t be able to attend. Last minute I found out I was able to attend.
This is CIL’s 25th anniversary – so what do you get a conference on it’s silver anniversary? Well, sorry Jane and Rebecca that I didn’t pick you up something but I got myself a gorgeous silver cuff bracelet right before attending. But I digress. I love how some things never change – like Lew Rainie of Pew Research Center’s Internet American Life Project was this morning’s keynote speaker. Another familiar face was Sarah Houghton-Jan, she along with Amanda Etches-Johnson and John Blyberg presented a great session on Tips for Fast Tech Project Implementation. They had a hashtag, #CILninjas and encouraged the audience to tweet while the stream was posted live on a screen in the room. I loved seeing others notes (and to be honest a bit of narcissism too when I saw my tweets up there) which included notes, retweets (fun to see my retweets show up from friends who weren’t attending or who were in another session) and questions for the panel.
Check out the hashtags for some great tips – I know I’ll be taking a lot of their ninja style back with me to work.
My notes that didn’t make it onto Twitter.
