Paul Sutherland has a think out loud
Paul Sutherland, digital thinker at Christchurch City Library gave a great presentation at VALA Day 3 on how libraries are not about books - they are about ideas - plus other gems - including musing on // Christchurch Library blog // Christchurch Library on Flickr. // Kete Christchurch //and last Digital NZ
He was brilliant - even if his jokes didn't load. Apparently there is a paper somewhere? Perhaps? Or maybe its still with the VALA lawyers?
Conclusion? Evey library needs a Paul Sutherland - but I doubt if you could fork him - at least not without consequences for the space time/continuum. See - its contagious!
