I had an awesome time presenting at the Connecticut Library Association conference on Monday. I presented It’s All About the User–I’m taking a clue from Michael’s Hyperlinked Library and serializing the presentation.
It was extremely well received (packed house!) and I got some great questions at the end. A big “thank you” to everyone for being kind and receptive–even when I spilled coffee all over the presentation table!
After the presentation I attended Lee Rainie‘s session on Web 2.0, and learned a lot from his presentation on Pew‘s data results. At one point someone brought up Twitter, and sure enough, I raised my cell phone, having just posted on the talk. It was a great session, and Lee was entertaining, warm and insightful–his anecdotes lent a real-world awareness to statistics that often feel far-removed for many librarians.
Presentations over, I had a working dinner over the phone and then headed to the Spa for a haircut and a massage–a rare treat! I crashed early since I was up at 3am to fly back the next morning.
Now it’s back to daily library work and catching up on emails!
