David Lee King

About davidleeking.com (the website):

I create, write, think, and speak about the social web, emerging trends, and libraries. This website reflects those topics.

Sometimes I stray into other related-yet-cool (translation: fun) topics, like videoblogging, experience design and planning, and other emerging trends. Basically, anything in my head on any given day that’s somehow related to libraries, digital technology and emerging trends.

Disclosures: I have ads on this site! Google Adsense ads, Amazon Affiliate ads and links, and probably other stuff from time to time. For example, if you click on a link to my book, you will be passed to Amazon through my affiliate link. If you buy the book after clicking that link, I make something off that sale (very, very little). Why do this? It pays for my web hosting.

Also, once in awhile I get review books from publishers, requests to test a new web service, or even the odd opportunity to drive a car for a week. You bet I take those opportunities! Why? Cause it’s fun … and to test them out/read them, etc. If I like it, I might share. If I don’t like it, I might share too.

About David Lee King (the person):
Here’s my official bio:

He speaks internationally about emerging trends, website management, digital experience, and social media, and has been published in many library-related journals.

I have worked in libraries since the mid 1990’s. Before becoming a librarian, I held some different jobs, including:

  • customer service phone rep at a mutual fund company
  • disc jockey
  • freelance recording engineer
  • musician
  • pizza delivery dude
  • concession stand worker
  • construction worker/painter (boy, that one didn’t last long)

Places you can find me online:


I like to write and record my own songs. The songs you’ll find on my Music page are all me (well, and sometimes are a bit of Michael Porter, too).

Feel free to contact me!
