Reports from Access 2002

It's 2:30am; Art is crashed out cold on the couch in the next room; Peter is Heroically porting his cold fusion interface for ezproxy administration over to php so we can demonstrate it live in roughly 6.5 hours. I seem to have come down with some nasty cold but apparently Tylenol Sinus is the best drug in the world. Everybody else left the hackfest around 1:30am after polishing off as much else as we can for tomorrow.

Jenny is reporting live from the conference on various sessions over at her anthemic theshiftedlibrarian.com. /u/l/i's own ksclarke gave a terrific overview of where the Lane Medical Library intends to head with the XOBIS project and why today. Unfortunately pub night went kind of late and i think Kevin missed our return to hackcentral, which wasn't until around 10:45pm.

Mark and I are reporting on the state of open souce in libraries and the results of the (obviously, not yet completed!) hackfest starting at 8:45. Note for next year: the report from the hackfest needs to be later in the day! Hopefully I can wake up in time to meet him for breakfast and run through our talk.

Anybody who doesn't yet know that Access is the best damn library conference anywhere should make a point of getting to Vancouver for next year's event. More soon... -dc

So, what else happened? I haven't seen any additional follow-ups or other write-ups except for Dan and Jenny's.

The haiku, and a limerick to boot, are online here. Of course you're missing the delivery, and the having-been-drinking part...

Eric's Report & Dan's Song (none / 0) (#4)

Eric has posted his Access 2002 Travel log, and I know it's coming on the web site, but here's Dan's great song from the poetry slam (note: 2212 was the room number where the Hackfest was held, I keep mentioning that I could remember it by thinking of Rush's album but I realized later that the album was called 2112, and not 2212,it seemed so clear when I was a teenager...)

A Song of Access

Let's sing a song of Access
'Cuz oh, it ends too soon;
Though wow, Hey, this year, Look! A Hackfest!
And it's right in my room!

My favorite thing about this meeting's
In so many topics we delve.
And though Monday's beer supply was fleeting,
There's more in 2212.

So sing with me a song of Access
Shed no tear from your eye.
Since where else do you find such excess
As goody bags filled with rye?
