I Said Something Smart!

wikipedia-logo.pngI don’t typically talk about the work stuff I do over here, but when someone interviews you and you say something smart, it’s worth a mention.

I didn’t just go to the ALA conference in Orlando in order to get free books and visit Hogwarts.  I had two events that I was part of.  First, I moderated a panel discussion about events in academic and school libraries.  Second, I did a speed dating event about library events and presented the work I have done with Wikipedia edit-a-thons.

An edit-a-thon is when a bunch of people get together for a few hours and edit Wikipedia entries.  As a host, I take care of snacks, training, and promotion.  I have done a bunch with mixed results.  I have failed and been very successful.  Both sessions were very well received and the second one led to me being interviewed for a blog!

The interview was posted the other day and I am very exited about it.  I said some pretty smart things.  Check out the article to see for yourself!
