So far, there have been almost 2,300 tweets emanating from the conference. You can find the entire archive at Twapper Keeper. Most delegates’ tweets have been very positive, commenting on how many new things they have learned. The best part about conference coverage via Twitter is that the conversation continues after the conference ends. As people head back to work and reflect on what they hears and saw at the conference, they tweet and others respond. It certainly validates the theme of the program, which was Information plus Conversation results in Collaboration and Innovation.
The negative comments I heard from delegates were about money, as in they didn’t have much. Budgets are being cut, libraries are being closed, and staff are being laid off. The AIIP stand was very popular, as people look to self-employment as an antidote.
