I am Morpheus

My favorite quote from this talk:

I have this rather grand vision of myself as Morpheus from the Matrix. “Here, students, are two pills. Take the Red Pill and your life will never be the same again, the world of information will look fundamentally different, and there will be no turning back. Take the Blue Pill and you’ll probably pass your term paper.”

A sample of slides for this Friday’s #carl14 preconference workshop with Young Lee, Cynthia Orozco and myself. Did I mention we will be using Legos?

Made it to San Jose for #carl14. Now off to run to Target for some last minute workshop supplies (ie snacks) (at Dolce Hayes Mansion)

Quarter for scale (at Cha Cha Sushi)

It’s not an academic librarian conference if there isn’t arm wrestling #carl14 (at Dolce Hayes Mansion)
