The Wisdom of my Crowd

Time’s a funny thing – sometimes there seem to be so many hours to the day (usually, admittedly, a boring day!),  and other times the minutes rush past like a river in flood…

I’ve been feeling guilty and a little selfish for having enjoyed a number of fascinating events and evenings in recent weeks, without reflecting on them here.  I’d love to have shared some of the points raised in discussion during the PI Conference ; or talked about the interesting ideas being exchanged at the recent SLA networking evening…..  But there’s no time for that now and, anyway, my notes don’t make as much sense as they did immediately after the events.

One of the most fascinating recent discussions I haven’t told you about focused on “Transliteracy”.  Fortunately three of my eloquent and organised LIKE buddies have  recorded their impressions of the evening – and each is worth reading.  Hanna Lewin’s informative account is published on the LIKE blog ; Matthew Rees’ ‘Ham Life’ is always entertaining, and the entry on Transliteracy is a vivid snapshot of the night; Richard Nelsson, whose insightful comments were among those I captured on the night , shares his perspective on his “Vexed Issue” blog.

I’ll be sorry to miss the next LIKE evening – it promises to be just as fasinating, as the debate will be on The Digital Economy Bill, led by Glyn Wintle from the Open Rights Group.    Maybe you’ll get along there yourself?  If so, let me know how it goes 😉
