LITA Demonstrates Its Social Networking Skills

Practicing what many a technology pundit preaches, the Library and Information Technology Association (LITA) used a number of social networking tools to conduct its Top Technology Trends forum yesterday.

A web-based poll of LITA blog readers in July was used by emcee Maurice York (N. Carolina State University) to lead the expert panel in a discussion of trends to watch.

The event was video-streamed live, and both remote and local audience members commented throughout the event, within the LITA blog.

The running blog script, which also includes a stream of messages posted by audience membersĀ  using Twitter, contains some gems, though, as these things go, you may need to mine for them.

Participants and remote observers commented throughout the forum
