the day at TLA

What a good day to be at the TLA convention!
I got to meet some excellent Texan librarians, learned a lot, and got some ideas for programs. I'm really enthused abt gaming in libraries (after hearing Eli's talk on literacy skills learned through gaming), but I reckon on starting with table top programs -- chess, mancala, RPGs.
Learned a lot about LibraryThing and its uses in lib catalogs -- also its uses in small communities of interest... which brings up contextual tags, other issues.
Look forward to tomorrow.

edit: to say Barbara Johnson of Beford libraries and Ellie Collier of ACC made an awesome presentation. they lit the fire of libr.thing up under me.
