Had a terrific first day at Internet Librarian yesterday. Taught a preconference workshop on WordPress with Kyle Jones, who skyped in and was the sage voice from behind the screen – very Wizard of Oz! Diana Wakimoto took great notes during the session over on the always interesting Waki Librarian blog.
Did a bit of lobby loitering talking to colleagues, followed by a great meal at Cibo’s with one of the dine-around groups. I love the dine-arounds. If you’re traveling alone or just feel like meeting a whole bunch of new people, these are perfect events. Good meals with a bunch of fellow librarians. I’ve made some wonderful friends and connections this way.
Looking forward to the Gaming & Gadgets event tonight. And another session on Monday on WordPress in School libraries with Buffy Hamilton.Â Right now, I should get back to work on workshops coming up when I get home, but the waves, the beach, the birds – all very distracting!
