This is the first time I’ll be bringing my iPad with me to a conference, so we’ll see how it goes with note taking! Any advice on good iPhone or iPad apps to have for conferences?
If you’re going to be in State College for the 2011 Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference, consider attending the unofficial tweetup! It would be super lame if you spent the first night of the conference alone in your hotel room, and Otto’s Pub & Brewery has a great beer list! Anyone is welcome, whether you tweet or not. We’ll be drinking, networking, and gearing up for the next three days of conferencing.
Date: Sunday, October 2, 2011
Time: 8 PM – 11 PM
Place: Otto’s Pub & Brewery (http://ottospubandbrewery.net/)
Our hashtag is #palatweetup, so use that if you’re doing any pre-event tweeting! I’ll also probably start a twitter list of attendees at some point. If you’re wondering what a tweetup is, it’s where people who Twitter (or use other social networks) meet up in real life. It is a great opportunity to meet virtual friends in real life and learn more about common interests (in this case, libraries).
