Me:  Ideas

No, I didn’t present anything.  These were just random thoughts in my random notes:

  • Course idea? LILAC post? “Wikipedia is a Wiki, too!”
  • For LILAC : develop surveymonkey surveys – teachers, students, librarians
  • Ongoing project: Anthony Atkins, GRN book (David Blakesley, Parlor Press?).  Invite articles; proceeds donated to GRN Travel Grant Fund.
  • With Angela Haas?  Video “book” – GRN 10th aniversary (or Kairos special issue?)
  • GRN Online 2009 – Angela and Mialisa and CarlC?  Facebook GRN!

Okay, so if anyone has any idea what my notes are about, let me know!
