    4. 4. Who and Why? <ul><li>“ Work on the Why and the Who before the What. Meaning before you decide to start a new 2.0 service, like a blog or a twitter account, first answer Why - why are we doing this ? and Who - who will do the work (because there will be weekly upkeep at a minimum) and Who - who do we want to connect to ? THEN you can answer the What - what type of tool should we implement?” </li></ul><ul><li>David Lee King </li></ul><ul><li>Digital Branch and Services Manager </li></ul><ul><li>Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library </li></ul>

    7. 7. Innovation Cycle <ul><li>“ I find & play, figure out if we can use it, find a guinea pig, get them to try, see if it sticks. Sometimes this works easily. Sometimes there’s resistance. (As with anything considered ‘innovation’.)” </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>“ I tell others to have a plan but we don’t always do that ourselves to be honest. Sometimes I think that too much planning will lead you to bypassing the actual ‘doing’ of an idea.” </li></ul><ul><li>Michael Sauers </li></ul><ul><li>Technology Innovation Librarian </li></ul><ul><li>Nebraska Library Commission </li></ul>

    12. 17. Crafting your message <ul><li>“ It’s not about the technology, it’s about the message.

    13. 18. What’s in it for them? <ul><li>“ You have to build trust with your audience and offer them something: content that is good, interesting, useful or funny. If you are just trying to sell something (even a free library service), they will tune out. This is the same audience that fast forwards through commercials on the DVR and listens to satellite radio so they don’t have to hear commercials.” </li></ul><ul><li>Cordelia Anderson </li></ul><ul><li>Director of Marketing and Communications </li></ul><ul><li>Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County </li></ul>
    14. 19. Just do it! <ul><li>“ None of the things Lori talks about today are ‘techie’ - they are techie like a phone is techie, or a car is techie. Don’t worry too much about what’s under the hood. Just take the keys, stomp on the gas pedal, and see what happens. :-)” </li></ul><ul><li>David Lee King </li></ul><ul><li>Digital Branch and Services Manager </li></ul><ul><li>Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library </li></ul>
