IL2007: Computers

Lee Rainey asked what a librarian who isn’t an Internet Librarian would be.  It’s a good question.  I have one more question.  Given the commonplace nature of scenes like these at Internet Librarian 2007…

Vendors demonstrating online products to librarians

Librarians checking email (there was ALWAYS a line)

Four librarians in a row, all looking down at their laptops and not up at the presenter

A typical conference session, with high laptop saturation

…How is it acceptable that 25% of sessions had no wireless access at all, and at least 25% of wireless users failed to get online in the other 75% of sessions?

Conference technology standards MUST change.
