A Bit of Downtime

We've got a bit of a break before the evening events at SLA so me and a couple of my co-workers came back to our suite to relax. 

It's been a great day – seeing lots of people I know from my former life (SPG has a booth here staffed by a former colleague from the Sask Book Awards as does a publisher called the Canadian Plains Research Centre),  people I know from my current/very recent life (a couple FIMS friends are here) and meeting lots of new people (all kinds of librarians from all kinds of sectors.) 

Went to sessions on The Public Library as Social Hub, The Use of Google in Academic Settings and one on Web 2.0 and the library.  All filled with lots of good information and thought-provoking ideas. 

What else?  I guess that's about it for now.  It's always nice when hotel rooms have complimentary WiFi rather than gouging you for $10/day or whatever like some others do.

    I was at the IT Summit in Saskatoon, and talked with Alan and Susan who I guess you'll be working with. Enjoy the conference, I'm moving on from my now previous library life, and starting a new job with some org next week in regina.

    Yep, Allan is my boss. He told me after that he probably should've had me at the conference since I'll have some tech roles in my new job. But it would've made for a long week in Saskatoon with the SLA conference as well. Plus it was nice to have a week to focus on my other responsibilities.
