Berry Much "Getting It"

Wow. Not just for Louise Berry's blog (conversational, thoughtful, engaging, great use of pictures to humanize the Library online), but I especially love her latest post. Talk about a director that "gets it." A great model I will be adding to the Roadshow!

Web 2.0

"How cool would it be if the local newspapers syndicated their headlines with an RSS feed so that you could subscribe to them? And blogged 'live' from government meetings? And posted dozens of photos (all the ones that didn't make it in this week's paper) on a Flickr account, especially if there was breaking news? OK, we're biased because we want them to do it so that we can feed the headlines, blog posts and photos onto our own Darien Community Matters blog, providing the most balanced, accurate and up-to-date information possible. And I guess that you could say that we're becoming Web 2.0 missionaries..... because we (that's me and Assistant Director Melissa Yurechko) invited Josh Fisher, editor of the Darien Times over to discuss it, as the first of a series of meetings with the local news media." [Darien Library Director's Blog, thanks Alan!]
