Going to be on library-centric overload this week as the American Library Association (Midwinter) Conference starts this week here in Boston... I will be there Friday morning volunteering in an area called the Uncommons (a play on the term Commons that is all the rage in library design/exeperience now; literally a collaborative area, often w/ mobile furniture, no shushing needed...) that will be a sort of drop-in area with space to hold impromtu meetings with the provided A/V equipment, use wifi, recharge your gear/self etc. You can mess around with video recorders and web cams to tweet about the conference as well (#alamw10). The Uncommons will be located in Lobby B of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, near the entrance to the ALA store (Level One, by the shoe shine guy; Shine 'Em UP!!).
