Live from Access in Vancouver

It's day 2 (hackfest was day 0, natch). Unsurprisingly, Access has already been a good time and action-packed with great talks and merry making. The Hackfest saw over 30 people crammed into a lab happily cranking along on seven or eight projects; a lot of interesting progress was made and we're putting together a summary talk for the final session tomorrow (will put the slides up as soon as I can). Roy has a video from the day and we'll get that linked here soon too. In the meantime here are some photos.

Where can I get a poster sized version of Roy's presentation photo?

Out of curiosity, what are the projects or should I be patient and wait for the slides(?)


Out, out brief candle!
... it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Inspiring talks, among others (none / 0) (#3)

There's been, for me, a palpable sense of being on the cusp of something new, a great big door swinging open, a huge opportunity, underlying the talks folks are giving. That the protocols being hardened in 2003 provide a platform onto which we can start to build a greater library future. Earlier this year I had a fun email exchange with Art trying to figure out what this opportunity really is. Here a few talks have been very insightful in understanding what I'm reaching for. In particular, Clifford Lynch's discussion of the increasing ubiquity of nascent and ad hoc personal libraries, and Lee Iverson's discussion of the role of libraries as groupware service providers, returning to the core role of supporting the community by bringing community activities back into the library. I've struggled for a few days trying to form and articulate a project I'd like to try out, and the folks I've spent time with here are probably tired of listening me struggle to explain this, but hearing these folks talk through these issues really gives a sense that there are many people starting to see this... this thing. Hopefully I'll be able to collect my thoughts during the next few weeks of vacation I've got coming in the beautiful northwest and write something up here when I get back. -dchud
