What’s the next big thing as we move into 2010? What technologies and trends should librarians be watching? What emerging trends are changing library services? What does a connected world of “continuous computing” mean for 21st century libraries? This presentation provides a roadmap toward becoming the “hyperlinked library” — transparent, participatory, playful, user-centered and human. Convening the tribe, mobile everything, community-building – all of these trends will be addressed. Join librarian and “Tame the Web” blogger Michael Stephens (tametheweb.com) for a discussion of ten technologies to be aware of in 2010 and beyond.
