Our presentation went well today. We shared ways to start using 2.0 tools and ways we have used some of these tools. Feel free to see what we did in “Expanding Opportunities with Web 2.0” our our wiki.
Some other web 2.0 presentations to look at:

A few thoughts about the AASL conference. It was wonderful interacting with people from across the country. The exhibit only time allowed for this networking time. The overall format of the conference, preconference workshop times, sessions, and evening events were all well organized and times. The keynote speakers, especially Dan Pink, were fabulous. The “One Book, One Conference” book sharing gathering was very engaging and interactive. The wireless access throughout the conference center was most appreciated so entries such as this could be posted in real time.
I wonder if any of the conference sessions were podcasted or will be available for downloading in the future? It is sad if they are not. If they are, hopefully, they will be posted on the AASL Blog. Why was there not a “blog” meeting for library bloggers? Or, maybe there was and I missed it? It was a pain not having the hotels near the conference center. And the evening events were spread out too far. It would be nice to have events all within walking distance.
Overall, it was a wonderful conference! Looking forward to Charlotte, North Carolina in two years.
