I just realized that I know most of y’all by URL…
lemme officially suggest the use of double name tags for this shindig.
We will have tumblr name name tags for sure!
AND PLEASE OH PLEASE introduce yourself!
I’m on it!
Rachel is, clearly, the best.
really, really excited for this.
If you haven’t noticed (mostly because all I do is reblog pictures of cats and flowers), I really like talking about memes and the internet. I spend so many hours a day with my hands deep in the guts of the web and I would like to share that with you. If you’re going to be attending ALA and want to kick back and discuss memes, I’ve blocked off 2:30-3pm in the Networking Uncommons on Friday the 28th for memechat. I don’t really have a set agenda in mind, I will answer any of your burning internet or meme related questions. I reserved the projector and the screen too so we can just look at funny pictures or something too.
Here’s the full Networking Uncommons schedule, if you wanna see what else is going on too. I’ll probably be there for the craft camp and the Wikipedia edit-a-thon as well.
I am really excited about ALA and meeting everyone and spreading the joy that is my internet website meme library. Please, let’s talk about it IRL! Or just drink! Or do yoga together because I bought a travel yoga mat and everything!
Hi! It’s about that time where you need to start figuring out what to pack for ALA. Here are some posts from the vault (or open web, or whatever) that might help:
LW special edition posts on packing
(get tips from people like Char Booth, Jenna Freedman, David Lee King, Buffy Hamilton, and more!)
LW conference photos from past conferences
(see what people have worn to previous conferences to get a sense of what might be good to pack || if you’d like to be a photographer yourself at #ala2013 and take pictures like these, fill out our form!)
Hack Library School’s LW feature
(scroll down a bit for information on packing for conferences)
Got any other link suggestions?
Reblogging so I have this later. Packing is tHE WORST
