I'll be leading a Solr workshop this February, in Taiwan, for the EBTI/CBETA Conference. This is a synergy of several interests of mine: library-related findability, Asian culture, and Buddhist philosophy. I'm particularly encouraged by the Integrated Buddhist Archives (IBA) proposal - seems like a perfect fit for Collex.
The EBTI/CBETA Conference invitation came to me through my great friend, William Magee, Ph.D., a professor at Dharma Drum Buddhist College. Bill is doing astounding things with Second Life in Tibetan language education, creating a program he's calling "Future Tibetan".
