Here are bits and pieces from his presentation.
"The book is not at risk. Knowledge management is."
I loved this slide showing Albert Einstein explaining what Library 2.0 is (picture is made up, of course).
Library 2.0 = (books & stuff
+ radical trust)
Mentioned Snowden's 3 rules:
- Knowledge will only ever be volunteered it can not be conscripted
- We only know what we know when we need to know it
- We always know more than we can tell and we will always tell more than we can write down
Challenge is for libraries to move to a place where we cannot see our users face to face (the way librarians are traditionally used to).
If librarians want to get into social networks, we have to be willing to tell people our real names (i.e. cannot be anonymous). "Would you go to a doctor who won't tell you your name?"
p.s. last post from Durban. Will post a few more once I'm back in Singapore.
