Conference Blogging

So I'm at another Information Science Conference, and guess what, I am making blogging.

Welcome to Metadata and Meaning: Creating the 21st Century Catalog brought to you all the way live for '05 by the New England Technical Services Librarians (NETSL). This is one of my favorite organizations, mostly becuase I like to pronounce their acronyms (thanks Walt!). Go ahead, try it ... NETSL.

Sharing a few notes with the world is the perfect way to fill the dead time between presentations while avoiding awkward conversations with your colleagues.

This is my second conference at which I'm blogging (the first was the '04 ASIST Annual Conference, #1, #2, #3, #4, #5).

I'm planning to volunteer to blog the upcoming Spring NEASIST program Syndicate, Aggregate, Communicate: New Web Tools in Real Applications for Libraries, Companies and Regular Folk. Conveniently this program will be on technologies like making blogging and the conference organizers are mad to apply as many of the technologies to the event itself.

What I'll be doing today.

1. Bringing you an important PSA

2. Updating a work blog (I can't link to it as it's on a testing server and not yet ready for primetime).

3. Keep running diaries of presentations I attend, recording anything interesting I hear.

I can't wait for the PSA. And please capture as much overheard metadata gossip as possible. Hurray for bloggers.
