Jason Griffey, a library techie whom I greatly admire, presented in Australia at VALA Encore last month.  Please check out his presentation.  The statistics will wake you up, the ideas will inspire you and hopefully you will walk away thinking, “what HAVEN’T we been doing and WHY THE HECK HAVEN’T WE BEEN DOING IT?!”

It’s roughly an hour.  Skip the first 10 minutes.  Focus on everything else and I must give praise to his closure:

Inspirational quotes  via Douglas Adams:

– Anything that is in the world when you are born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.

– Anything that is invented between when you’re 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.

– Anything invented after you’re 35 is against the natural order of things.
