BIGWIG’s Social Software Showcase Presentation at ALA2008



I am one of the presenters/conversation starters at BIGWIG’s Social Software Showcase at ALA2008. What is the Social Software Showcase, you ask? From the website: “The general idea for the BIGWIG Showcase is to highlight up-to-date technological innovations for libraries, while giving as broad an access as possible to the content and the presenters.”

So – I’ve created a screencast. Here’s what you  do – watch/listen to my presentation, and then you have a few different options:

  • Come sit at my table during the actual Showcase, and we’ll chat! Show up on Saturday, June 28th at the ALA Annual Convention in the Marriott Anaheim Gold Key Rooms I-III from 1:30-3:30pm.
  • Comment now on this blog post (comment box found below)!
  • Comment on the Blip.tv version!
  • Comment on the YouTube version!

Here’s my presentation:

Description: Engaging your library’s local community is NOT an easy task. Engaging your library’s local DIGITAL community is even harder. This presentation introduces the concept of the experience economy and mashes that up with digital community participation and engagement. What’s that get you? A headache! No, wait… that’s the wrong answer. It REALLY gets you … Community Experience, aka the Conversation Economy.

So watch/listen to my presentation (if the version above is too small for you, go here for a 640X480 version)… and then come experience the conversation economy in action at my table at BIGWIG’s Social Software Showcase! Hope to see you there!

    thanks for preempting the conversation and your presentation at ala by sharing it with us pre-show. for the folks who can’t attend–in particular, many rural librarians–your presentation will help bridge the gap between those who have the budget to travel to anaheim and everyone else.

    i folksonomies, and appreciated your framing of the concept:

    “you’re helping the world even though it’s a personal term.”

    my mom (a 68 year old avid blogger for the past few years) uses phrases and colloquial terms common only to her own speech patterns as tags, and i LOVE IT. she’s adding to the corpus in a personal way, and that’s terrific.

    this format was such fun for me, david. i was able to hit pause and go directly to my local library site to put a hold on “the experience economy” right quick. cool!

    and, as a person who believes in the power of stories, both as me, sarah, and also through my work, your focus on telling stories resonated with me.

    nice job, david. thoughtful, compelling, and informational. not a bad trio :)
