Happy new year
Well, we are almost filled up! Only 13 places remaining for the first library unconference in Victoria - it would be great to get some feedback from you about what your expectations are and what you would like to achieve for the day.
We've got an interesting mix of people, from public, special and academic libraries as well as a literary blogger, a couple of community service people from councils, and a good geographic spread. I know already we have people who can help with integrating RSS into library catalogues, we have an RFID expert, and we have our expertise here at YPRL rolling out the PLCMC Library 2.0 staff development program. For those of you who are interested in this program, Helene Blowers is presenting a webinar for the SirsiDynix Institute. It is at a rather unsocial hour though - 2am, Jan 10th, however all the seminars are available through the archive - http://www.sirsidynixinstitute.com/future.php
Its been really interesting just in the last couple of weeks seeing how Web 2.0 is becoming ubiquitous - from the 2nd life report on the 7.30 report to the Barcelona model on youtube - its not the technology that is the news any more, but how people are using it.
