Keynote in South Africa at SAOIM

Having the pleasure of delivering a keynote in Pretoria, South Africa at the Southern African Online Information Meeting (SAOIM) conference. My presentation, “Technical Analysis & Inspiration Points for Library Futures,” address how the questions about new technologies reveal conceptions that get us to our futures. My goal is to posit some questions that get us thinking about the next opportunities. It is not about the technology or tools, it is about the spaces between the tech, the human creativity.

Here are my slides.

I was especially excited about the lessons from NYT’s recently leaked Innovation report and Mary Meeker’s KPCB Internet Trends 2014 report. SAOIG keynote pretoria joe murphy librarian

It is about the space between the notes, as in technology just as in jazz.
