Looks like I *will* be blogging in the month of May, but only from Chicago.
To my surprise, I was approved as an “official conference blogger” for MLA 2008.
Stewart Brower – Professional Notes
A’Lyn Ettien – The Creature from the Health Informatics Class
Marie Kennedy – Organization Monkey
Maureen ‘Molly’ Knapp – LSUHC New Orleans Health Sciences Center
Michelle Kraft – The Krafty Librarian
Leigh Mihlrad – Leigh’s Little Corner of the Web
Bryan Nugent – The Universe of Medical Librarianship
David Rothman – davidrothman.net
Eric Schnell – The Medium is the Message
For reasons I haven’t yet been able to determine, they decided to aggregate all posts about MLA 2008 from each of these blogs on a page at a WetPaint wiki …but don’t provide an aggregated feed. So here’s a feed I slapped together in Yahoo! Pipes.
Here’s that same feed, previewed with FeedSweep:
I’ll put together a feed that pulls from more than official sources (sort of like the one I set up for CIL2008) next week and will elaborate on the MLA2008 GroupTweet I set up that’ll allow MLA attendees who use Twitter to conveniently send a tweet to all other MLA 2008 Twitter users from a laptop, cell phone, or other mobile device.
I’m bringing with me to Chicago these newfangled devices for the digital recording of sound and images (both still and moving)- so expect at least a little of that sort of stuff to appear here between 5/17 and 5/21.
