Free online conference - Archives and Technology Unconference

Fast-paced, forward-looking, and free!

The Archives and Technology Unconference (TAATU) is a one-day free event loosely (and I use the term in its broadest sense) connected with the Annual ACA Conference. All you have to do to register is create an account on the wiki site (see link below), click on the EDIT tab, and add your name to the list at the TAATU wiki. Once that minor hurdle is past you will have the opportunity to visit the iSchool, which is providing the space for the event, on the lovely downtown campus of the University of Toronto.

But that's not all. You also get to vote on the t-shirt design and sign up for a fast-paced activity: design a battledeck (Powerpoint karaoke) or prepare a lightning talk (max 5 minutes/3 slides - we really mean it this time!). Here's your chance to talk about the technology you use or want to use and hear others do the same.

Click to the wiki. (You know you want to.)

See you in Toronto!
