At ALA

Walking to ALAI’ve just arrived at the ALA conference in New Orleans. Landing yesterday afternoon, I stayed in the hotel last night preparing for today’s presentation on “Flat World, Flat Web, & Flat Schools.” I’ve not done this presentation before, and am more than a little nervous. I’m sure it’s going to be a very sophisticated audience, so I hope I don’t flub up.

This conference is huge. I stepped into the exhibitor’s area just before coming up to my session room, and happened to easily find Linworth Publishing, who published Redefining Literacy for the 21st Century. It was great to see Donna King again, and I hope to get back down there this afternoon to say, “Hey!” to Marlene Woo-Lun, their president.

I sat in on the preceding presentation, which was about identifying underserved patrons, which seemed about as unrelated to anything that I do, as can be. But it was actually quite interesting.

Well, time to step forward and start setting up. I need to see the light, hear the sound, and taste the information. 😉

BTW, WiFi in the conference hall, is Fantastic.
