  1. Great images Doug! And thank you for the intro. to Clint on Saturday. I’ve done a post on the Critical Mass blog about the seminar. Would be good to have that link on your blog too. Wish I had thought to ask you for images. The CM post can be found here: http://www.criticalmassblog.net/2012/?p=2568

    There’s also been some discussion on that post on Facebook.

    • Thanks Judy,

      Your post looks great – your comments provide a good response to the day. I will add your link to my post – Would you mind if I put the first few sentences in to entice the reader to follow the link?

      Hear from you …

      Cheers Doug

  2. I found these presentations to be very informative and inspiring.
    The content and sequence of the presentations were dynamic.
    By breaking down the delivery into the three different viewpoints the three Keynote speakers were engaging and thought provoking.
    Starting with Helen Cole presenting ‘the Librarian’s view, Noreen Grahame presenting ‘the Gallerist’s view, Jan Davis presenting ‘the Artist’s view and ending with an interactive audience time for ‘questions and answers was right on target with information.
    The Hearsay team discussing their project was fantastic. Combined with humour and wit they certainly kept the attention of a diverse audience.
    I truly enjoyed the afternoon and felt I could of stayed into the night with more speakers and presentations.
