Planning Library DrupalCamp around ALA 2010

Planning Library DrupalCamp around ALA 2010:

LibraryCamp June24th Call for Speakers:

Alrighty...The ball has never been rolling faster on the notion of having a LibraryCamp just prior to the American Library Association National Event.I just made some major additions to the wiki http://groups.drupal.org/node/43044 including the notion of a venue-decision deadline for April 7th and a financial commitment for Duo Consulting to pay the Venue fee on April 8th.Within FIVE DAYS from this post we will know where the event is and the next day it will be reserved.

I would like to use this thread to discuss the topic(s) that each speaker would be willing to present on. This is also a great place for any one to share topic(s) they desire to see at the LibraryCamp. As this thread develops we can edit the wiki to add the potential topics by each speaker's name.

The question still remains whether we might go for an UNconference style event. Perhaps we will do a hybrid where we have a number of presentations followed by something similar to an UNconference. I suspect that the quantity of topics offered for presentation may well decide that for us. Feedback is welcome on this and ALL details.
