CLOUD COMPUTING

- there is "what it is" and what people say when they mean cloud computing

- buzzword territory

- i don't own it = cloud

- lives online = cloud

- there is now enough bandwidth that you can have your data andapplications located somewhere else

- you don't own the server

- THE INTERNET IS BROKEN

- you pay someone else to handle the headaches of servers and softwares

- wordpress.com vs wordpress.org

 - SaaS, IaaS, PaaS

- it's a good thing

- environmentally sensitive - Iceland is now offering deals for peeps to host their servers there

IS CLOUD COMPUTING AT OUR DOOR IN LIBRARYLAND?

- helping the end user

    - Gdocs

- great for collaboration

- looking at remote hosting as much as possible

- from ownership to access

- what if these services disappear tomorrow?

- important - HOUSING INFO ON U.S. SERVERS

- demo for Google Wave -  http://wave.google.com/

- do we have to wait for peeps to change their expectations?

- campus wide move to google docs

- universities who no longer provide email for students

- how safe is your info - srsly - we use passwords

- we pay for services with our personal information

- cloud computing allows me to be a consultant

- dropbox saved my life so many times

- karaokeparty.com!

- a lot of people don't care about the cloud - they don't use data., slides, etc.

- if your staff can't download software to their computers - browser stuffs are really interesting

- is cloud computing a way to hack around IT restrictions?

- cloud computing is the revenge of the mainframe

- most people only need wordpad!

- cloud computing is NOT open source (though Ubuntu's Eucalyptus will be both)

HOW DOES THIS MATTER TO LIBRARIANS?

- should we be telling LIS students?

    - meh

- it's the mindset that's more important than the hardware

- do we need a library website or just personalized data that people can pull as they need

fluffly clouds vs borg computing

SHOULD WE BE USING CLOSED/PROPRIETARY TECHNOLOGIES?

- effort focusing, popularity issues

- decision making is different though - we can't just evaluate things based on if it's the "right" thing to do - you might not see the same value from the software then

- what makes it worth it?

- being able to look at it and mess with it is more important than it being free $$

- from a practical viewpoint - drupal is free, has a large development community

- building/supporting tihngs in house is timeconsuming and expensive

- we like to buy it because then there is liability coverage - but there really isn't

    - perceived superior support as well

- should we be biased towards open?

- is this a new ethical standard for librarians?

- what core value are we linking this to?

- SK is getting one ILS for the province - narrowed down to 3 vendors - none of which were Evergreen

    - went with III Millenium

    - no acquisitions module in Evergreen

- WALDO libraries put startup money in Evergreen to build them an acq model

- TSIKA project

- what do peeps do for acq with evergreen - hello Georgia?

- free vs open

- code should have an independent existence from the vendor

- inlibro.com - one man show and biblibre.com

- is open source mentality in libraryland stem from oclc (in terms of collaboration and cooperation)

- people want large proofs of concept (PEI was good and quick - but they have 1000FTEs)

- do we need to have a critical mass that are pissed at vendors?

    - and we need people talk about it, becuase peeps making these decisions are comfy with th evendor model

SOCIAL NETWORKS TO GET THE WORD OUT

- facebook to reach teens

- by the time IT gets back in touch with you and threatens to shut it down, you've already run a study

- is the concern that we need to maintain this stuff?

- what type of info should we be putting out there?

- be specific and relevant out there

- maybe Canadian students use social networking differently than American students?

- what if students friend you on facebook and ask you questions there?

- not much space for libraries on facebook, but there is space for librarians

- who monitors what people say about their library on social networks?

- push the users to the presence, not hte presence all over the networks

- timely tools - where do we want to push this info?

- who are we really talking to when blogging - FACULTY

- good things

DIGITAL DIVIDE - THE ROLE OF LIBRARIES

- there is a role

- libraries as social safety nets (jessamyn's talk)

- also telling them stuff like - that is phishing

- what do we do about this lack of internet

- web access without support is irresponsible

- things that weren't part of our mission, now are

    - does your school require you to use email? then you should teach them how.

- distacne education - closed content, closed systems

- libraries as access points (esp promoted by the govt)

- is better infrastructure needed?

- peeps in Qc don't usually go to the library

- even in Canada/US this is a huge thing

- how do we get peeps up to speed

- also - are we AGEIST?

- kids don't really know what they are talking

- we've bought into a digital culture meme - not a generation

    - series of ideas and considerations

- real!
