How to be a good trendspotter and early adopter

Published on

Slideset designed to start conversation at an unconference session at the "Web2.0 and School Libraries" unconference Perth, Western Australia. 28 June 2008. See: http://ecawa.pbwiki.com/Agenda+for+School+Libraries+and+Web+2+Unconference.

The topic was a session request from on the wiki from one participant. I liked the idea of that topic and wanted to find out about it, I decided that the best way to do that was to facilitate the session.
