Tame The Web

Overheard at ALA

I jokingly confess to my audiences that I’m a sometimes eavesdropper at conferences! You learn about the profession and how people feel if you listen closely. The most telling and useful was a snippet I heard in the Skywalk at PLA: “Everytime people really like something, we get rid of it.”

Here are just a few from Anaheim:

On the Super Shuttle to the hotel, somewhere between stop #6 and stop #10: “Always make time for yourself at the conference too.”

On the exhibit floor: “Face it, you suck at Guitar Hero, but the teens won’t care.”

At a nearby table at lunch while one person describes the Dewey-less library program to another: “And angry cataloger guy kept saying…”

What did you overhear at ALA? :-)
