Blogs, Wikis & Other Emerging Trends

This was a preconference to the Missouri Library Association annual conference in Columbia, MO. RSS, Blogs, Wikis, MyFace, MySpace,, Flickr, YouTube, last.FM, LibraryThing, and more.
David Lee King, Digital Branch & Services Manager, Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library.

Along with Stephen Abram's "Finding the Future: Library 2.0" - Pew2020 Predictions, refuseteks, PIG, Pimp Your MySpace, "The Internet is like herpes -- it'll always be there." Cartoon caption: "If TV is a babysitter, then the Internet's a drunken librarian that won't shut up." Facebook - a sustainable social network for life. Librarians: Do what we do best. Don't focus on patron transactions but on their transformations! Stephen Abram, VP of Innovation, SirsiDynix.

These are my interpretations of the presentations at this point. I'll think more on them tonight and tomorrow and ....

Makes me realize how lucky and happy I am to be a librarian today!
