Perspective and commentary by Marshall Breeding
Richard Wallis has been hosting a monthly conversation among individuals interested in current library technology issues. He calls this group of participants “The Library 2.0 Gang.” Richard records these sessions and makes them available as podcasts on a site hosted by Talis. In order to provide a wider audience for these podcasts, they will also appear on Library Technology Guides.
The original Library 2.0 Gang site provides the following description:
The Library 2.0 Gang is a regular monthly round-table podcast hosted by Richard Wallis, joined by several contributors drawn from a pool of regulars from the world of libraries and the technologies that influence them, to discuss the topics of the day. Each month The Gang will be joined by a guest relevant to one of the topics under discussion. The Library 2.0 Gang is produced by Talis and syndicated by Library Technology Guides.
Although Richard works for Talis, these conversations do not promote the products or services of that company, and the presence of these podcasts in no way implies an endorsement of Talis or its products by Library Technology Guides or Marshall Breeding. Some of the gang regulars work for other companies in the industry including OCLC, SirsiDynix, Innovative Interfaces, and Ex Libris. After participating in the last couple of Library 2.0 Gang sessions, I feel comfortable with the objectiveness of the forum. They have been lively conversations touching on topics that should be of interest to the readers of Library Technology Guides.
