I guess I have a different idea of what an unconference is than the organizers of National Library Unconference Day ’11. To me, an unconference doesn't have keynote speakers. It's peer education without stars and top down lectures.
I also have a different idea of what any library conference keynote slate should look like. In an 80% female profession, I'd prefer five women speakers and one man to the lineup listed on the website as of 2/5/11 at 3pm Eastern. I'm not saying there should be a mandated quota (though I'm not saying there shouldn't be either), I just think they could represent they could represent their constituency a teeny bit better.
suggestion #1: fuck keynote speakers at unconferences
suggestion #2: if there are going to be keynotes at library conferences, try for at least gender parity
Readers, I hope you appreciate the restraint of this post. FEMINIST LIBRARY HULK wants to come out really really bad.
