Danah Boyd Calls Us to Step Up

There will be multiple posts on this talk, so I implore you to go to LITABlog and read all about what Danah Boyd has to say. I will give you the nickel version:

Stop acting like librarians are the only ones who are the “keepers” of information and help, instead of hinder, those who are helping people access information. She asks us to stop fighting so hard against Google, formal information, and remixes, informal information, and realize their inherent value.

–Jane, Amen

    I think Danah Boyd may have been the top highlight of the conference. She said a lot of interesting things. I haven’t composed anything as yet, but I will. I may let it steep.
