The library without walls

Sorry, no picture and yes, I gave a talk at the Readex conference as well.  I thought it was fairly well received given the topic — though I think it surprised folks as well.  Lots of fun though.  Key quotes from my talk:

  • Metadata wants to be free…free the metadata
  • Libraries == middleware

I recorded my talk, so if anyone has ~50 minutes to kill, they can listen to it from here: http://ir.library.oregonstate.edu/dspace/handle/1957/3134

Or, if you want, you can read a quick summary from Vika Zafrin’s blog at: http://wordsend.org/archives/2006/10/06/readex-ree….  I took a quick look at it and it pretty much covers the basics.
