ALA 2007: Tim and Abby's Excellent Adventure

If you're in Washington, DC going to the American Library Association conference, Abby and I hope to see you around. We don't have a booth, but I'm on panels today and tomorrow:

*BIGWIG Social Software Showcase, 1:30-2:30 Saturday
*RUSA MARS: Harnessing the Hive: Social Networks in Libraries (10:30-12:00 Sunday), with Meredith Farkas and Matthew Bejune

And Abby and I are wandering the hall in our LibraryThing t-shirts (Tim: black; Abby: yellow), meeting people, crashing happy hours, etc.

PS: Come to "Participatory Networks: Libraries as Conversation" 10:30-12:00 (WCC Room 143B) today (Saturday). It's almost blank in the program, but it's a top and extremely interesting guy at Second Lifeā€”memo to self: put cards in wallet, not pants pocket.

UPDATE: I posted my "Hive" introduction on Thingology.

I won't be at the conference, but I'd like to welcome you both to Washington, DC. Have fun at the conference (and don't miss Khaled Hosseini's talk).

P.S. It's a simply gorgeous day here in the DC area. Don't stay indoors all the time! :-)

It was great to see both of you this morning. Thanks for the book, Tim. It's already in my catalog with a unique tag. And thank you both for allowing me to get a photo with you. I'll post it on my Flickr page Monday morning.

Hi! I was lucky enough to run into Tim at the exhibits and I'm sure he thought I was crazy, but I begged him for a photo:

Thanks for putting up with your crazed fans, especially me - it def. made my day to meet you! :-)

Great presentation yesterday, Tim! You certainly seemed to capture the most audience attention during the questions. I hope this means good things for LibraryThing.

I can't wait for the new tagmash feature to be available!

Thank you for the wonderful presentation at ALA. Your examples were great, and I thought you did an excellent job highlighting the positives and limitations of tags.

And like Tricoteuse I can't wait for the tagmash either!

It's slow, which is probably why it hasn't been announced here.

Tim - Probably not the best place to post this but I was curious if you guys ever picked a winner for the bookpile contest while the site/server was down. I know this is old news but I'm curious. (Mostly because my photo was the one you used while it was down!)
Best - adamallen
