BC Library Conference 2009-Keynote Professor Henry Yu

I am at the BC Library Conference this week (speaking on Saturday) and heard Professor Yu speak last night. The idea of storytelling is a constant theme in my life and while we are creating stories about our libraries here in NJ this year, next year we'll have the skills to begin helping our customers tell their stories. After listening to Yu I kept thinking we need a structure where people can enter their stories and they can be linked to time line of sorts so they will create a new history of the word. I'm thinking of something like a historwiki. Ideas?

Henry is on the right, and the other fellow is Dr Peter Ward, Henry's colleague and Acting University Librarian. It was a fascinating talk, wasn't it?
