  1. I’ve been asked where our grassroots proceedings are by a librarian in TN. Aside from Oznog’s Monday DLC notes, we have not yet received any notes or recordings as of 3am Tuesday, April 19th. As you can tell, we folks at FGI are working day and night for you. 🙂

    If you have notes or recordings to contribute, please e-mail them to dnlcornwall@alaska.net.

    My current sense is that we won’t start getting much material until after DLC closes on Wednesday, April 20th and people have a chance to get to their home computers and start banging away at their keyboards.

  2. While Oznog will have more to post about the DLC meeting which concludes today, as of 9am Alaska Daylight Time on 4/20/2005, we have not had any additional contributions. We continue to encourage attendees to send us any session notes and/or multimedia of this week’s important meeting. Please e-mail your notes to dnlcornwall@alaska.net as soon as you’ve had a chance to settle in after DLC.

    “And besides all that, what we need is a decentralized, distributed system of depositing electronic files to local libraries willing to host them.”
