Drupal4Lib BoF at ALA Anaheim

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sun, 6/29/08 (7:49pm)

We got a great crowd of around 20 people for our Drupal 'Birds of a Feather'. The above is a shot of everybody in the BIGWIG Bloggers' room -- just before we got kicked out by some group from YALSA (bums, we'll get even)!

(We then proceeded to the next available empty room and had our get-together there.)

First up on the agenda was setting up the Drupal IG, making sure we have enough signatures and asking for volunteers to serve as Chair and Co-Chair. For the first year, Leo Klein (i.e. me) graciously volunteered to serve as chair and Ian Chen as co-chair.

Not the best quality shot but hopefully it conveys what a great time I had at the LITA Happy Hour on Friday, June 27. I got most of the signatures for the Drupal IG plus met a bunch of great people.

Drupal4Lib BoF at ALA in Anaheim

Submitted by Leo Klein on Mon, 5/12/08 (11:23am)

I got a number of enthusiastic and helpful suggestions on the Drupal4Lib list as to when and where we could hold our Drupal4Lib BoF.

It's increasingly looking like it'll be Sunday after the LITA Top Technology Trends in the LITA Bloggers' Room.

Mayor Daley Speaking at the UIC Forum

Submitted by Leo Klein on Tue, 4/29/08 (6:55pm)

Mayor Daley speaking at UIC's Daley Urban Forum named after his father Richard J.

The Forum featured a number of Mayors from Arab countries. Many of them have troubles that are common to countries in the 3rd World (lack of funding, infrastructure, etc.)

Particularly moving however was the account by the Mayor of Mosul, Iraq.

ALA in DC (6/23-6/27)

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 6/22/07 (2:25pm)

I'm stuck in Chicago with the ALA-DC Blues again.

ALA along with the annual LITA Conference is one of my favorite conferences -- particularly when it's in a town like DC.

Unfortunately I'm too mired down with projects here in the Windy City to make the trip.

I look on with complete envy to everyone who's going.

If you couldn't make it to the annual get-together of the "interactive" world in Austin, this is just about the next best thing. Here's what's up so far...
