Open Gaming at Internet Librarian!

Filed under: precat — jenny @ 6:33 am

Soon I will be heading to beautiful Monterey for this year’s Internet Librarian conference. This year I’m doing a preconference on gaming with Aaron Schmidt, moderating the public library track with Michael Stephens, and presenting a session on gaming Wednesday morning. As a good friend of mine always says, possibly the best thing about conferences is getting face time with friends, so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. If you see me there, please don’t hesitate to say hi.
Alternatively, you can come to the open gaming that Aaron Schmidt, Michael Porter, and I will be hosting after the Sunday preconference. It’s an informal ALA/WebJunction thing, courtesy of Information Today.
Starting around 4:30 p.m. in the Colton I room, we’ll have Guitar Hero (PS2), Dance Dance Revolution (PS2), and Wii Sports going for open play. This is your chance to beat your favorite blogger at any one of these games. Aaron won’t be able to stay long, so if he’s the one you want to take on (and you have my sympathies if you do, especially in Guitar Hero), be sure to come early. I’m pretty sure LibraryMan has been practicing GH, too. In fact, it’s too bad Rock Band isn’t out yet. Next year.
We’ve got the room until 7:00 p.m., so I can pretty much guarantee a lot of laughter, finger wagging, trash talking, and general merriment. Oh, and Flickring, too, since we’re also counting this as a Flickr and Twitter meetup. Might as well throw in video, too, since I believe Mr. Video is coming.
So come one, come all, but come with your game face on, even if just for the pictures. Bragging rights apply until the next open play!


  1. Mr. Video will definitely be there, with his fingers twitching, and ready to lose badly to all you gaming dudes and dudettes!
