A user walks into your library with a 40GB iPod intent on downloading all the PDFs needed for a research reprt, can he or she do that in your library?
(Shaking hands) Me: Mr. Gorman, I’m Michael Stephens. I write the Tame the Web Blog for Libraries and technology. I wrote a response to your piece, I hope you got to read it or will. Gorman: Ahh, some of those people were so thin-skinned. I hope you’re not. Me: No, sir, I am not thin-skinned. Thank you. Nice to meet you. Take a look at my blog sometime. Marydee blogs Gorman’s talk here: http://www.onlineinsider.net/2005/03/gawking-at-gorman.html
I’m about to do my “Technolust/Planning” talk here in Indianapolis..
More CIL to come but right now I’m languishing in my suite at the Embassy — Embassy Suites Indianapolis! Today: Two presentations for Hoosier librarians on IM and Optimizing Tech. And a chance to meet Michael Gorman who is keynoting??

Watch for the new aadl.org coming in early July .
