LITA wants to create a new kind of technology conference within ALA. I am chairing the committee charged with the task of coming up with a new â€œbigâ€ idea about technology conferences. We want the conference to be useful and we want it to reflect what you may find lacking in current ALA and non-ALA sponsored conferences.
Here is your chance to tell us how you feel. Please share this survey with others. If you have something you would like to tell us that is not reflected in the survey, email me at mboule at gmail dot com or leave a comment on this post.
Thank you for your time. We appreciate it and we hope to return your investment with a conference about which you can be excited.
Update: The link is updated and should be working. Thanks for your patience.

The survey is showing up as closed to me – am I the only one experiencing that problem?
I just wrote an article about information security awareness at industry conferences. Your readers may be interested in reviewing the key things to remember when planning to attend such a conference. For example, it’s a good idea to turn off Bluetooth cell phone connections and laptop Wi-Fi connections while on conference property. They can be very attractive for hackers looking to steal address books and other proprietary or confidential information for profit.
I would love to see something done where new technologies were introduce once a week. I know that this has been done before, but rather than a week long conference(by the time I travel to and from the west coast of Alaska) having tasks that we can do at our desks and times that we could meet online with people who know the technologies.
The survey is showing closed to me also.
