I'm not attending the Online conference currently taking place in London, but it's being blogged by others, of course. I was particularly interested in the perspective of Roo Reynolds, someone from outside the core information field (he is with IBM, as a metaverse evangalist : a phrase I feel no shame in using now as I think I'm one too). Reynolds has written a very detailed posting about some of Tuesday's sessions at http://rooreynolds.com/2007/12/05/online-information-07/ You can also find Karen Blakeman's presentation Searching without Google on her blog at http://www.rba.co.uk/wordpress/ and various people are blogging on the conference and exhibition on the Information Today blog: http://www.infotodayblog.com/ I used to go to Online every year (for about 20 years, ahem) but now I haven't for a couple of years and I think I'm now OK with participating vicariously. Next year they ought to have a Second Life track (I mean in SL): I was going to suggest it this year, but too much work already.
