Librarian X With great power comes great bibliography.

Web 2.you keynote slides and bibliography

Last week I went to Montreal to present the keynote speech for the Web 2.you conference at McGill University. Web 2.you is organized by students in McGill's School of Information Studies, and I was really impressed at the whole production. As far as I know it's the only LIS conference that's entirely run by students.

I want to thank the organizers Adrienne Smith and Bruno Therrien for the invitation and all the hospitality they showed me while I was there, to the other presenters for some really informative and interesting talks, and to the attendees for their welcome and the great discussion that ensued.

I'm posting my slides here, and below that is the bibliography of sources I mentioned or used in the presentation. I also mentioned to attendees that I'd share my DRM article online, so here's the PDF link to that. When they post the video I'll link it here as well.

  1. I think you might be interested to hear about the student-organized conference at the University of Toronto’s library school – I think I’d heard about it before, but I never really thought about it until now. The difference is that all of the presenters are students, except for the keynote (this year it’s Cory Doctorow – very cool!):
