A few weeks ago I gave a talk at the Michigan Library Association’s Applied Technology and Trends Day in Ann Arbor, MI on how to get personality into your library website, and why you want to. (Hint: Your Library is made of People!). This talk has the same title as one I gave in St. Paul a few months ago, but it’s a 93% different talk. (There are still unicorns and the Hulk.) It’s probably the talk I’m most proud of (so far), so I hope you’ll give it a look/listen. The audio is distant at times, since I felt weird standing on a stage, but it’s mostly good.
