Blog filled week!

I will be flying to Sydney on Monday for the Online conference, courtesy of my Ramsay Reid scholarship. For my paper at the Computers in Libraries conference I will be discussing Libraries building Communities and Web 2.0 initiatives in Australia and where best to find them but the Online conference.

I will be blogging the conference, but as I don’t have my laptop in time for this trip (I will when I go to the US in April) it won’t be live. I will get onto a PC when and where I can and in the meantime will be writing notes furiously. (freehand, how old fashioned! LOL).

One thing I am really looking forward to, is meeting up with fellow Australian library bloggers. Many of the team from the Libraries Interact blog (of which I am a part) is either in Sydney, or going to the conference (or both), so we have planned to meet up. Its one thing to have long conversations through mailing lists and on blogs, another to do it face to face. It will be an honour and a pleasure to catch up with these inspiring people. I’m just sorry that not everyone will be there.

(in announcers voice)So watch this space, next week coming to you direct from the Online Conference in Sydney!

    Oh..I wish I was there. Both for the conference and to meet up with eveyone.

    Evey second year since 1993, I’ve been planning vaguely to go to Info Online. Maybe next year…

    Enjoy it. But please, please blog it on LINT for those of us who couldn’t get there.

    I really look forward to an Aussie perspective from the Computers in Libraries conference in April.

    I shall certainly post conference info to LINT. With others from LINT there too we should get a good cross section of the different streams.
