William Denton wrote to tell me about the One Big Library Unconference he's organizing on Friday June 27 from 9-5 at the Centre for Social Innovation. Both sides of my background, the literary and computer, are dominated by ideas about, and experiences with, libraries. I think it's great that York is taking another look at what a library is within the context of the web, social networking tools, etc. Luke and I have long had a dream of creating the "Underground Library" to merge our private libraries and thereby build communities anchored in shared readings and texts.
If you're free on Jun 27th and care about libraries, plan to attend.
