Social Software Showcase Rocked

Yesterday, I participated in the LITA BIGWIG Social Software Showcase. It was very cool! The Showcase had more of an “unconference” feel, which was nice. So rather than doing a formal presentation with a brief Q and A at the end, I created a screencast of my presentation (linked above) about cool Twitter add-ons, and then at the Showcase David Free and I sat at a table and had good conversations with interested attendees. We talked about a range of things, from Twitter to Facebook to other techie topics.

I think ALA could use some more of these… my guess is the interest groups and poster sessions are supposed to cover this type of ground, but I’m not sure they’re achieving that. The Showcase DID achieve it. So let’s definitely have more!
