Yesterday I attended a Free and Open Source Software for Librarians program by Scott Dexter and Samir Chopra, based on their book Decoding Liberation: The Promise of Free and Open Source Software. Before you read my report back, you should know that the content is familiar territory to me. My spouse, Eric Goldhagen, gives a similar talk in his half of our "Radical Reference: Community Librarianship and Free/Open Source Technology" (and other talks) road show.

I hate hate hate the winter and never feel like leaving the house. Then along comes May and all of a sudden there are a million things I want to do outside of the comfort of my own (or Eric's) home.
It's Drupal BarCamp time, once again in NYC, and as usual, I'll be out of town. But if I weren't going to be at WAM, I'd be at Brooklyn Polytechnic learning how to make this site (and others, notably Radical Reference) better.
Sign up now, they're capping registration at 120. It's free. You'll learn the same kind of stuff other groups might charge you $1200 for.
