Via Alan Gray of the Darien Library in Connecticut:
President-elect Leslie Burger has returned to blogging. This is good on so many levels. It makes me happy to see our incoming president try one of the Web 2.0 tools on for size. I hope I bump into her someday at a conference and we get to talk about blogs, etc. I’m sure it won’t be like when TTW met Michael Gorman in March 2005.
I especially like “Talking to Strangers on Buses” – I’ve done that myself at ALA!
I love to chat people up on the ALA shuttle buses. At the Chicago conference I struck up a conversation on a bus with a young woman who is a student at UNC Chapel Hill. I asked her to invite me to meet with UNC library school students sometime in the fall. She did, I went, I toured, I spoke and I came back thinking that the library profession will be in good hands with students like those I met. Thanks to the UNC Chapel Hill ALA Student Chapter for organizing this event.
