Ok, it’s my birthday tomorrow. It’s a big one and I’m feeling ambivelent about it. Usually, I say that I don’t want a fuss, but I do. This time, I don’t know. My dad says that I’m having a mid-life crisis. I just see my life on the downslope and am having existential questions.
On another matter, the speech in DC went well. Pictures are at Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/86458666@N00/). Pretty intimidating space.
The conference was good, but I’m feeling a little down about librarians. In many ways, they are so conservative and controlling (the need to describe everything anally). There may be some value in that, but it also not likely to keep us relevant in a very fast moving environment. I think that we need to focus on what is most important (authentication and reliability of online legal information).
