Slowly winding down from a great conference

The Evergreen conference was truly wonderful. Part of the joy was watching a community come together for the very first time.  It’s a scrappy community, one focused on good service to library users, openness, and sharing. We did hackfests and programs and keynotes and table-talks and dine-arounds, and in general, we communed so much that by the end of the conference I had exhausted the very last bits of my extroverted nature and was happy to have a few hours alone in the car on the way back to Florida.

I still need to unpack suitcases, clean up some debris from a roof-cleaning a couple weeks ago (we have shrubs sitting under piles of pine needles), watch more movies, and read. But I’m excited about watching a community grow and being part of it.
