NEKLS Tech Day

Thank you to Brenda, Josh, Erin, Scott, Sharon, Heather, Kate, David and everyone else who welcomed me and, even more important, did not point and laugh when I confessed my clothes closet is organized by a serious system including color, sleeve length, style and whether it was a “work” item.  🙂   I saw a lot of great gadgets, attended a session by Royce Kitts & Eric Gustafson on gaming in the library and one with Brenda Hough on Getting the Technology Training.  David Lee King gave a thought provoking presentation on Emerging Trends.    The keynote by Michael Porter was way more than a presentation, more like an experience, conversation starting and insightful.  Its clear he sees an amazing future for libraries and wants to share his vision with the rest of us.  Wow! I always come back from events charged up, and this one was no different.  I have pages of notes and many more action items on my to-do list.  What’s on your to-do list?

  1. Glad you were there, Bobbi! It was fun to get to spend some time with you in the real world.

    On my to-do list: Gain video editing skills. I have Audacity downloaded and have worked with it a bit, but am clumsy and unskilled. The software that comes with the Flip Cam is fine for the most basic of basics, but for anything more, I need something more.

  2. It was great to see you again, too — and to find out there’s more people in the world who organize their closets down to the sleeve-length and collar type and the sub-organize by color 🙂 My to do list? Create more instruction sheets and put them up on tech.nekls.org — presentations were well-received and successful! Desire to do more sheets now 🙂

  3. @Brenda – Video editing is something I’m working on too. I’m still using MovieMaker. I’m not sure the library will purchase any other software, so I may end up getting it myself. I’m interested to know what you decide you like the best. I got some recommendations on Twitter today I’ll be checking into.

    @Heather – It’s great to know I’m not alone in my desire to organize 🙂
