This was my third Summit and finally it felt like I was driving in third gear. Sat in some great sessions, notably those facilitated by Valentine Charles (Europeana), Joan Cobb (The Getty) and Andy Neale (DigitalNZ).
Later this year, thanks to VALA (Libraries, Technology and the Future) there’s some travel for me to go and visit some of the LODLAM leaders. Really looking forward to a pure think and talk tour, and seeing some great people again, and meeting new people. The brain load and creative effort will be shared with Rowan Brownlee thanks to the generous professional support provided by Intersect Australia and the Australian National Data Service. The learning will be brought back to the VALA conference in Melbourne, 9 – 11 February 2016.
A few moments around the Summit captured my imagination and will stay with me.
Here’s one before the Summit with Louise Denoon and the rest of the State Library of New South Wales team in full swing with planning. You know you’re with a great crowd when there’s a smiley face in the floor plan!
