I came across this cartoon recently and I just love it. I think I had it in both presentations I gave last week. You can seem more like this at Gaping Void.

Since I'm at what is my first of two conferences this month I thought I'd try to share some conference tips I've pulled together over the years and ask you - what have I missed?

It looks like there is another Library themed meme making the rounds, this one started by Meredith Farkas at Information Wants To Be Free, I spotted over on David's blog weeks ago but never imagined it would get around to me. Both The Bald Trainer & Beth Tribe tagged me for this one, so I better get on it. Q1) How or why did I start to get into blogging? I'd had a personal blog for a while and in fact I'd started this blog at one point then deleted all the posts in July of 2007 to get a fresh start. I started this blog as more of a record for me, as I said in one of my very first posts, Read more [...]
