I’m worried I’m gonna run out of interesting ways to incorporate both hashtags before I run out of conference days.
My major item(s) of note from Wednesaday came from Track F, Library Issues and Challenges. Organized and moderated by Jennifer Koerber and Michael Sauers, the track mixed a bit of the traditional presentation stuff with a whole lot of discussion and break-outs, complete with microphones being flung around the audience and craft paper and crayons on the table for work and feedback.
It was awesome. I got to hear some great stuff from Hamilton Public Library’s Ken Roberts and others that was exciting, and hearing about what different people in the room were working on was really inspirational. There are some great ideas out there, and they need to be acknowledged, celebrated, and then mercilessly stolen.
I confess I’m feeling a bit of a session grind this go-round. Non-traditional nigh-unconferences like this ameliorate that tremendously.
