The second part of the session was done by the Delft Public Library men, who showed rough edits from a documentary they are doing on American libraries. Very engaging. They even shot some video during the session that might be included in their documentary. They are blogging and posting interviews, etc., online at Shanachie Tour.

BTW during the evening event, a 5.9 earthquake occurred about an hour north of here (9 miles north on San Jose). I didn't feel it, but the wireless network in the conference area was temporarily affected. Bill Spence (from Information Today) and I both feel cheated. We were in California for an earthquake, but felt nothing. Bummer.
