One of the highlights of this year’s CALL conference was the presentation by Darlene Fichter on Web 2.0 which kicked off our conference program Monday morning. I was privileged to introduce Darlene, who is Coordinator of the Data Library Services at the University of Saskatchewan and Advisor on Emerging Technologies, as well as consultant and project manager on various website, portal, library and intranet projects. Her talk was delightful. These slides which she posted to Slideshare for us only partially capture her lively presentation.
I love those gophers! During her presentation Darlene identified that about half the law library folk in the audience are reading us here at Slaw and, when asking who the “advance scouts” are for Web 2.0, the audience indicated that Slaw fills this role in the legal research community.
