Meeting People

The most amazing part of yesterday was how quickly I met in person people I had known only virtually for a very long time. I quickly located the table where “Steven Cohen(Library Stuff)”:http://www.librarystuff.net/ and “Blake Carver(LISNews.com)”:http://www.lisnews.com/~Blake/journal/ were sitting. That led me to meet those “Movers and Shakers(Empowering Library Users)”:http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA510790?display=LJMS&pubdate=3%2F15%2F2005, “Michael Stephens(Pondering the ROI)”:http://www.tametheweb.com/ttwbleog/ and “Aaron Schmidt(walking paper)”:http://www.walkingpaper.org/. And today someone walked up to me and said “I’m Greg Schwartz.” And I said, “I know because I recognize your “voice(Open Stacks Podcast)”:http://openstacks.net/os/archives/cat_podcast.html.” And countless others who I will leave out for sake of brevity. We even have “Stephen Abram(Executive Council)”:http://www.cla.ca/about/council.htm, President of the Canadian Library Association. But I haven’t been able to find Michael Gorman anywhere. I guess I will have to keep looking.
