T is for Training 23: I Wanna Be the Noob/The Sacrificial Wildebeest

The twenty third hour of T is for Training is entitled I Wanna Be the Noob/The Sacrificial Wildebeest.

Download and listen to our 15th  show of 2009 here. We had a nice (and funny) cast of folks joining us today.

We recapped both the virtual and face to face portions of the Pres4Lib Library Trainer Presentation Unconference that took place last Friday in Princeton NJ.

On the today’s show:

Maurice Coleman Harford County (MD) Public Library 
Beth Tribe
, Howard County (MD) Public Library
Marianne Lenox
Huntsville Madison County (AL) Public Library
Allison Miller, Internet Public Library 
Lori Reed, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (NC)
Rachel Rappaport, Howard County Public Library (MD)
Laura Botts
Mercer University (GA)

The opinions expressed by call participants are those of the participants and not necessarily those of any institution or group they represent or are associated with. And thanks to those who participated by chat.  We would love to hear your voice next time.

We recorded live at the conference, but that was before the battledecks(video) and the second round of lightning talks (video.)

  1. Hey everyone, bummed that I couldn’t participate live today. Thanks for all the kind words. :-) Just wanted to say that the AV hookup was a little complicated because because we were trying to set it up to easily flip between camera 1 (the speaker) and camera 2 (direct feed of powerpoint). I know the audio problem was related to this and Scott Sanicki at PPL is the person who could give a good anwer. You can email him at: ssanicki[at]princetonlibrary.org.

  2. Attendance? We had 49 registered, two people showed who weren’t registered and 4 or 5 no shows, so it was about 47 total in the room. Don’t know how many people followed online. We’re going to try to send out a virtual participation survey through blogs and twitter and see if we can get a sense of how many people participated and what there experience was.

    Regarding dead Wildebeests: See Andy’s GREAT blog post: http://agnosticmaybe.wordpress.com/2009/06/17/dead-wildebeests-and-the-self-conscious-crocodile-pres4lib-2009/ (and of course you can see his original lightning talk on the wiki.)

  3. It is very gratifying to know that virtual participants were able to tune in and get a flavour of Pres4Lib.

    We were actually going over the feedback and evaluation surveys while this was being recorded and had a big discussion about our next LG venture.

    It would have been great to have you all with us at Triumph on Friday.
