My defrag talk

My voice-over for this talk included a few facts about community colleges and libraries, plus a mention of Six Degrees of Francis Bacon, a game I learned from Andy Havens of OCLC. Using WorldCat Identities, I can get from David Weinberger to Francis Bacon in four steps!

(Also, the Flickr tag data is courtesy of Tom Reamy’s talk at Internet Librarian last week… and I have used the data about Library of Congress so much it almost feels like mine, though I did hear LoC present this info at a talk this summer.)

A nice group, though I’m very, very happy to be through with my presentation! I think it’s so important for us to talk outside our traditional domains — invigorates our points of view, and gives us the “embed experience.”
