Reports of This

Things have been so quiet here that readers will be forgiven for thinking I died. Fortunately, I was only in Seattle.

I was there for the ALA Midwinter Meeting, where I had the opportunity to show Booklist Online to a lot of people, and also to get a lot of really useful feedback from people who already use the site. And, yes, I did find time to sample the local beer.

Whenever I travel for work (I first typed “travel from work”–is that a Freudian slip or what?), I always plan to keep the blog updated. After all, the great promise of the Web, or so they say, is that you can do your work from anywhere. Heck, I could update my blog from my handheld if I wanted to.

But whenever I travel, I find that the real-time, real-life (what the digirati wags used to call “meatspace”) concerns get in the way. After all, I’m at conference to confer, meet, and interface with people–if it wasn’t helpful to shake some hands I wouldn’t get on the plane in the first place. And the necessary work on the site, much of which I do on my laptop, seems to go slower when I’m not using my office setup.

So, anyway, that’s why I didn’t blog from Seattle. Let me just say that it was productive, enjoyable, and thoroughly exhausting.

And now back to work.
