See you in Washington, DC

ala-annual-logo.jpgALA will cause mammoth hordes of library folk to visit Washington DC June 21-27, for the annual meeting of the American Library Association. Thousands of library lubbers will swarm to presentations, meetings, watering holes, and tons of DCish nooks and crannies. ALA has its own wiki too!

If you’re staying, you can attend LITA’s BIGWIG (Blogs, Wikis, and Social Software Interest Group) Social Software Showcase unconference, implying that while this shindig is taking place during ALA in Washington DC, it will be a virtual meet, complete with a Twitter feed, Meebo access, and Flickr goodness so you can “be there” and participate in the discussion and presentations via your favorite online apparatus.

If you are going, join me at the Library 2.0 (Ning) mixer, the iSchool’s alumni & friends reception, the Facebook Librarians after hours mixer, or perhaps in one of the 300+ programs available.
