We will more than likely discuss some of the things below tomorrow December 5th at 2pm Eastern Time:

The end of Western/Christian calendar year brings about a slew of “top 10’s” and “best of lists.” So to add to the noise, how about we do a couple of T is for Training best of lists.  Two subjects:

a) The “Top 5-10 Techie Trainer or Trainer Traits?” If so, what are they?  Inspired by Roy Tennant’s post on Library Journal Top Ten Techie Traits

b) What is you list of must haves while training? Equipment? Stuff? Comfort Food? Inspired by a FriendFeed conversation.

From Contributor Jill Hurst-Wahl: Another person, Doug Hall, who runs the Eureka Ranch I “think” believes that innovation is a process (and one that he has successfully helped companies learn and use). It would be interesting to know if his process would work with libraries.  Additional reading:  Time’s Article from on Creatology

20 Questions: Would you like to be interviewed using a version of the Inside the Actor’s Studio/Proust/Vanity Fair Questions? or 8 minutes with a famous training person? Who would it be? What would you ask them? And when are you free to do it?
