Several good talks upcoming this fall which will have some ibiblio involvement.

First, Fred has managed to convince Social Networks researcher danah boyd to stop by next week, Thursday September 14th to visit and to give a public talk about her work. Probably about 2 pm – 3:30 pm. Trying to secure a place for her talk now.

Second, Phil Meyer and the J-School have PressThink and NewAssignment.Net‘s Jay Rosen coming by around October 4. There will be a public talk but I’m not sure when as yet.

Third, The Health Sciences Library is sponsoring a visit from Craig Silverstein, Google’s Technology Director, on Thursday, October 26, 2006 4-5:30pm at the Medical Biomolecular Research Building. I’ll be directing a panel in response to Craig’s talk.
To reserve a seat and/or to submit discussion questions and to learn more, visit the HSL’s Organizing the World’s Information: Google’s Vision for the 21st Century.

Fourth, Center for Citizen Media director, Dan Gillmor will be in town on Monday November 13th and will be doing a public talk that afternoon.

    Ah, why 2:30-3pm?! That is the only time of day I cannot make it ever because that is the time when kids are getting out of school. Am I the only person with kids in town? I’ve been reading danah boyd for two years now and would really like to meet her.

  2. Dammit, I feel like danah and I have been *almost* crossing paths for years. I will be out of town from Monday to Friday next week, so I guess we will continue to be like ships in the night…
