I've called the ALA Conference "The Show"
, and for good reason, although the real
show is not really Midwinter, but Annual. Midwinter is a lot like Annual, though, but with less people, so perhaps I can be forgiven for failing to draw a clear boundary line.
Nonetheless, the WorldCat Grid and Developer's Network were unveiled to the Midwinter attendees at a number of venues:
- Policies Directory Update
- Policies Directory Update and the WorldCat Registry
- Introducing WorldCat Grid
- Developer's Network Meet and Greet
- WorldCat Registry Update
I also devoted a part of the RLG Heads of Systems meeting to the WorldCat Grid and Developer's Network.
At the Developer's Network Meet and Greet, Don demonstrated the WorldCat API to an interested audience of 30-40 developers. The beer probably didn't hurt either.
All in all, we're quite happy with how the meeting went, and are already looking forward to the real
"show" in Anaheim in June. We hope to see you there!
