ALA OITP Advisory Committee Fall Retreat

Today I am in the second day of the annual ALA OITP Advisory Committee Fall Retreat. We have a real treat today in Alan Davidson, Google Director of U.S. Public Policy and Government Affairs. He is talking about all the interesting fronts that google is working on in terms of the future of the Internet.
