My Role: Reporter
I am in the final stages of preparing my presentation for the MLC annual meeting this Friday. If you have any burning issues, or not so burning issues that you would like me to speak about please let me know. I look forward to seeing you on Friday! 😉

On September 30, MLC presents a special program: “Blogs, the Internet and
Libraries,” featuring David Weinberger speaking on trends in Internet use
and what this means for libraries. Mr. Weinberger is a noted expert on the
Web and blogs, the co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto, a former gag
writer for Woody Allen, and an entertaining speaker. His presentation
promises to be thought-provoking and enlightening. For further information
on David Weinberger, see: http://www.hyperorg.com/speaker/bio.html
Following David’s presentation, a panel will react to his comments in the
context of their library and web experiences. After lunch, three Michigan
librarians will give practical information on how they created their own
library or personal blogs. The program will end with MLC’s annual business
meeting. To register online and for further information, go to:
