Buzzing after NLS6 – Heroes Mingle goes forth

A little over a week ago, Sally & I were in Brisbane, QLD, enjoying the enthusiastic buzz of NLS6. There were plenty of highlights for me, including meeting lots of tweeps IRL (in real life) for the first time, absorbing inspiration from a varied array of international speakers, watching folks dive into Twitter for the first time, and making connections for possible future projects.

Our presentation – The Challenges and Surprises of Reality Librarianship – was well received and we had plenty of positive feedback, including from a keynote speaker. It was my first time presenting at a symposium or conference, and I feel both relieved & inspired by the experience, and having a famous keynote speaker say that she was impressed by our presentation certainly rates as a highlight for me!

The NLS6 twitter hashtag #nls6 was highjacked on the first day, so it was amended to #nls6sat, #nls6sun and #nls6mon over the three days. The Storify collations can be found on the NLS6 website, look for blog posts with the storify tag.

We’ve both come back from NLS6 with plenty of food for thought, lots of inspiration from other speakers, and a whole swag of ideas for future #makeithappen projects. We’ll gather our thoughts and make plans, so keep your eyes peeled for our future endeavours.
