I am glad to be at #edu17 this week doing a poster today on @iulibraries#Imago specimen repository. That is today at 12:45 in Exhibit Hall A-C Level 200 in the Philadelphia Convention Center. See poster. See below where I am putting up my poster. Thanks to Kent from@ucmerced for the assist.
This morning I got to hear Michio Kaku the futurist. He had some interesting things to say about the 4th Wave of Technology. I want to be a full time futurist too.
The closing keynote at this year’s ACRL Conference is my hero Lawrence Lessig. I really took alot away from his talk, namely that of government and the ways in which it is corrupted by different types of influences. He mentioned his grassroots group rootstrikers – http://www.rootstrikers.org and talked a bit about how his book Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace has been proven correct so far in how privacy intersects with online community.
Yesterday I was in Austin, TX to give the closing keynote for the ER&L 2015 Conference. I hated that I could not get to town sooner to take in more of the conference. Especially, the big discovery panel and the talk from Marshall Breeding (open source central index – now that is a cool idea). However, I did get into town (sans luggage) to give the closing keynote and I had a blast. Below are my slides from the talk and I will work to put up the full stream soon.
