Casey Bisson (met him for the first time – nice guy!)
“Libraries are much larger than our books and our OPACs”
We use Linux daily – it’s the dominant platform of most social web apps
IBM saves over $900,000,000 annually because of LInux
Scriblio.net (used to be his WPOPAC) – very cool. He’s making this easily available to other libraries!
“sites that allow comments value their users”
“Your website is not a marketing tool – it’s a service point.”
Then Casey did a successful live install of Scriblio! Very cool. It’s basically WordPress with some customized widgets and plug-ins (and your catalog records) – took him 11 1/2 minutes, it seemed easy to do.
It’s going to work with Horizon soon. Book jackets come from Amazon.
