BIGWIG is cool

If you haven't heard about it, BIGWIG is ALA's blog / wiki / social networking interest group and they're doing a pretty cool program at the conference this year - bringing content and presentations to the web like never before. Yay! I just blogged about it over here and so I won't go on and on, but OCLC's very own Michael Porter (aka libraryman) just did one of the presentations (about the facebook developers platform) which you'll find hosted on WebJunction, here.

Thanks to Michelle (wanderingeyre) and others for putting this together. I'm excited to participate in the conversation on Saturday (1.30-2.30, Renaissance, Mayflower Rm), but also very, very happy to see this type of content reaching beyond the conference and onto the web in a dynamic, participatory way. Nice work!

Shameless self-promotion here. My colleague Andy and I are giving a presentation from 1:30 to 3:30 on Saturday on snappy ways to market your eContent. Will be a good time, at the Renaissance hotel, room 12-14!

As Michelle noted on her blog it's LITA BIGWIG not ALA's. LITA is one of the several ALA divisions that is working quite hard to deliver new content and new delivery systems. Giving them proper credit would be a good thing. Thanks.
