The 22nd annual Computers in Libraries conference opens back at the Crystal City Hyatt on Monday April 16th with Lee Raine of the Pew Internet & American Life Project talking about the latest stats from his organization particularly as it relates to our social, Web 2.0 world. Day two starts out with Liz Lawley of the Rochester Institue of Technology, Lab for Social Computing who focuses her talk on gaming, learning and the information world. Check out my recent blog post which provides a link to a podcast of a TVO program where Liz and others talk about the Web of Anonymity and Facebook. The third day of CIL features John Van Oudenaren, Senior Advisor, World Digital Initiative at the Library of Congress and he will share what’s happening on the world digital library stage. Don’t forget breakfast is served each morning before the keynotes and a coffee break in the exhibit hall follows the keynotes on Tuesday and Wednesday.
