I’m super excited because Ruth Dukelow from the Michigan Library Consortium has asked me to keynote their annual meeting this year (October 5). It’s our first speaking engagement that’s directly related to the blog and this project – so I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to transfer some of the ideas we now have down on paper to a new format. MLC is doing some exciting things that fit into many of the things I’ve blogged here, so I it seems like a nice chance to share ideas and take the collaboration forward well beyond this project! (Thank you Ruth for making this happen!)
And because it seems that I just can’t escape the personal || professional convergence lately, I’m also excited about visiting Michigan because it has a special place in my family history. Hopefully I’ll get out to see a farm or two while I’m there.
