    • 1. COMMUNITY How are we staying connected? Who’s doing what? Where and when can you find us? June 25, 2010 - IA Institute, UW iSchool Michael Adcock - @PimpIA
    • 2. WHO AM I? • IA/UX Designer • 2008 MLIS Grad, UW Information School • 10years of software development experience in Seattle area • Freelancing and looking for a job. :-) • michaeladcock.info
    • 3. WHO AM I, REALLY?
    • 4. PERSONAL LEARNING NETWORK • People as information sources • Curate your collection of contacts and let them feed you information • Periodically share your own findings (links, blog posts, etc.) • Engage and connect people to each other and to helpful information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_Learning_Networks
    • 5. MAIN SOURCE? (Pointers to articles, blog posts, book releases, samples, current practices and trends, fascinating conversations, jobs, amusing banter, and psychological support!)
    • 6. WHO’S WHO • Rather than list a bunch of books or links, I wanted to introduce you to people. • I’mtrying not to play favorites or pimp out friends, but obviously this list is biased. • These folks are “thought leaders” and love to share and collaborate. • Please don’t think of them as rockstars! :-)
