Ok, this one might be several lunchtimes, but I wanted to make sure it’s out there. I attended the OCLC Symposium: â€œWhoâ€™s Watching YOUR Space?â€ at Midwinter ALA in Seattle. The symposium was an extended discussion about social networking practices and trends. It was truly fascinating
The panelists included Michael Stephens, Howard Rheingold, Danah Boyd, and Marc Smith. While they were all intriguing, if you’re only going to listen to 1 of them, make it Howard’s talk. Howard starts out, “I’d probably be in the penitentiary today if it weren’t for librarians!” and it gets better and better!
The Webcast is 2.5 hours, but here’s the 3 minute sneak peak:
