  1. See you at OLA then!

  2. I’m excited to get to hear you speak in Moorhead (no e!) next week! You’ll have librarians from MN, ND and SD listening intently!

  3. Holy frequent flyer points, Batman!

  4. Hope to buy you a drink in Birmingham! 🙂

  5. Hi Stephen. Loved your talk at OLA (though it left me feeling woefully inadequate). I felt like the guy in the old Maxell ads, where he’s sitting in an armchair getting his hair blown back by his stereo system.
    I really would be very grateful if you can direct me to the list of sites that was displayed on one of your sites. Flickr is the only one I can remember! (no short term memory left) and it was way cool, so I want to see the others! Please and thanks.

  6. Hi Stephen, You made a comment at the OLA talk that nearly 40% of all health information online was incorrect. Any idea where that stat came from? I’d like to include it in a newsletter item but am having difficulties sourcing it.
    Thanks, OLA was great!

    Saw your presentation in Moorhead yesterday. It was excellent! Definitely inspired me to start thinking a lot further ahead than I have been. Thanks!
