Another day in NZ. I got to hear Roy Tennant speak. I am happy. For me, one of the crucial comments he made was with regard to the ubiquitous of net access in the US. You pay a set charge and access as much as you like. Compare that with the hotel I’m staying in which charges NZ$33 for the first 50Mb, then NZ10c/Mb after after that. I’m dreading my internet bill tomorrow. With unlimited net access, you’re more likely to play and try out new stuff. Roy covered some of his usual areas, like keeping catalogues away from the public and also looked at some of the stuff the OCLC made possible via worldcat. For a much better summary of his talk I recommend Deborah Fitchett, who has managed to blog several of the sessions including Roy’s.
