Vendors at Conferences

Monday, November 8th, 2004

Originally, I was going to lump Feedster’s Scott Johnson’s and Nick Bradbury’s of Bradbury Software (FeedDemon and more) posts about what it’s like being a vendor at a conference with the other post about BloggerCon III notes, but I think those of you who attend any kind of conference might appreciate learning about what vendors […]

Accelerating Change Conference & BloggerCon III Notes

Sunday, November 7th, 2004

Some of my blogging friends are attending the Accelerating Change conference in California today: sj and Shimon. I just checked my aggregator and the two, who happen to be sitting next to each other, posted to their blogs minutes apart, so their writings appear in my aggregator together. Coordinated effort, perhaps. Both of these guys […]

BloggerCon III Stuff

Saturday, November 6th, 2004

Today, BloggerCon happens somewhere out in California. I haven’t been paying too much attention to it this time around because of all the other chaos in my life that must take priority. I was a little surprised that the Feedster geniuses didn’t set up a search or something for it on their site. The above […]

IRC Transcript of the Librarianesque Session

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Jort Mentink posted “cleaned up” IRC transcripts of many BloggerCon sessions, including the Librarianesque Session. Thanks, Jort! And thanks, Sam, for typing the session so that those in IRC could follow the not-so-audible Webcast better. Sam did such an amazing job typing what was said in the room, the IRC log is basically a paraphrased […]

Dutch Blogger Picks Up the Librarianesque Session

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Too bad I can’t read Dutch. Another blogger writing in a foreign language that seemed Germanic pointed to me a few days ago. I can’t find the link or remember who it was now. I think the jist of the post was something about librarians not knowing what blogs are. Addendum 4/29: Check out Jort’s […]

Library Browsing Reinforces the Small World Principle

Thursday, April 22nd, 2004

While I was waiting at the reference desk at my local public library tonight for a librarian to finish with another customer, I picked up a book on the display in front of the reference desk: “Walking Across America.” I looked at the back cover to see if it said what the book was about […]

Synthesizing BloggerCon

Wednesday, April 21st, 2004

Now that I’ve typed and posted my notes from BloggerCon, I’m remembering and revisiting how much the sessions I attended meshed with each other. As people in the Librarianesque Session talked about blog features, I wondered how many had been in the Visions from Users session and wondered how I could communicate what people were […]

Postscript to the Librarianesque Session

Tuesday, April 20th, 2004

I read some notes from other people about the Librarianesque Session today (linked below). A recurring theme was that the session only raised issues; it didn’t necessarily offer any solutions to some of the problems bloggers face. The authors seemed a little disappointed that they didn’t walk out of the session with concrete answers. This […]

BloggerCon Notes

Tuesday, April 20th, 2004

The Librarianesque Session notes are finished, as is the blogroll (pending additions from others). I also tossed my brief notes for Blogging in Academia up and my jottings during the Blogging as a Business session, which I will probably flesh out when I’m more awake. I guess I didn’t take notes during the Visions from […]

Librarianesque Session Notes Are on the Way

Sunday, April 18th, 2004

I know some of you might be interested in the notes from the Librarianesque Session. It’s after 1 am and I just got home from my BloggerCon social/networking obligations. I apologize, but I’ve been awake for 19 of the past 24 hours and I don’t think I have the stamina to write and post notes […]
