The events last week clashed with CODI 2007, Pittsburgh. In previous years, I've tried to bring together all of the blog posts covering the event, so here's some of the bloggers who covered the event: It's My Life Meeting on the Ledge …I can't believe that there were only 2 active bloggers covering the event, […]

A big "thank you" to everyone who made me feel so welcome at the Library Association of Ireland's Public Libraries' Section Conference in Waterford! My presentation ("Libraries on the Web (2.0)") is currently available on SlideShare. There's a big pile of photos from the event on Flickr, and I've also separated out the images taken […]
Just quickly catching up and catching my breath! My two presentations from the last 7 days are now available on slideshare — both were effectively the same: Glasgow – Transformative Technologies – Utilising Web 2.0 in the OPAC Talis Insight 2007 – OPAC 2.0: Teaching the Pig to Sing There's also a selection of photographs […]
Over the last 15 months I've been giving occasional presentations & workshops about "2.0" and some of the things we've done with our OPAC, but the next five weeks are going to be hectic with 6 presentations: 02/Nov/2007 – "Transformative Technologies: Web 2.0 in the library environment", Glasgow (CILIP Scotland) 06/Nov/2007 – "Insight 2007: Inspiration […]
In the last couple of months, I've had several email exchanges with Dynix & Horizon libraries who were interested in using some of the "2.0" features that I've added to our OPAC at Huddersfield, but the technical challenges (setting up an extra web server, MySQL database, etc) would have been too much. I've been thinking […]
Nice to see libraries get a mention in this week's IT section in The Guardian: Sue the libraries – they're letting people get content on the cheap [Libraries] are the institutions which have the longest experience of making copyright goods available fairly to people who have not paid directly for them; and in all the […]

I seem to be following Brian Kelly around at the moment — having managed to pick up his cold at ILI on Monday, I gave a presentation after him at the "Inspiring the iGeneration" event in Wolverhampton yesterday. My presentation (which was a hotch-potch of survey stats, recent news items, and examples) is available on […]
Not sure if he knows it, but I've just spotted that my older brother Simon gets a mention on the Pennine Radio Wikipedia page. Sadly he doesn't appear in this video… …I can't believe their original jingle was "Pennine 235, that's the sound goin' into your 'ear'oles"!
Really wished I could have stayed for the second day of Internet Librarian International 2007, but had to be back in Huddersfield today before heading off to Wolverhampton Science Park tomorrow. My ILI presentation is available on SlideShare and I've uploaded some photographs to Flickr.
