As you might imagine, I’ve been doing a lot of presentations about Web-scale lately…both the general concept and how it applies to the web-scale management services that my team is building for circulation and delivery, print and licensed acquisitions, and license and rights management.
Web-scale: Portfolio Director’s Cut
Lots of people have been asking for copies of the presentation that I gave at ALA. I used to always have problems sharing slides. For one thing, the joke slides never work out of context; for another, I try very hard to avoid bulleted lists of things, also making context-less Powerpoint viewing difficult. Now I can gladly say, “Let’s go to the video tape!”
Powerpoint, slides, and video all in one. Unlike movie directors, however, I find video of myself a bit hard to watch, so I hope the rest of you will enjoy it. There’s a good Q&A session at the end that was actually my favorite part of the presentation. The presentation covers not only the general web-scale strategy and cloud computing platform, but also more specifics about the Web-scale management services Library Advisory Council, pilot participants, component functionality, and development timelines.
There are a lot of other great conference presenatations and updates available on the OCLC Presentations site–a little something for everyone.
