code4lib 2006 registration count pool

How many people will have registered by the official start of the conference? Which, by the schedule, will be 0930 PST on February 15, 2006.

Put your guess and your name/nick, in the list below, sorted by guess amount. Winner (closest to exact amount without going over) gets a six-pack of black butte porter from dchud. Seriously.

  • 100 - dchud
  • 95 - jaf
  • 93 - artunit
  • 85 - rsinger
  • 64 - roy
  • 42 - edsu

Limited to attendees of the code4lib 2006 conference. Employees and the families of employees of Code4lib Inc. may not participate. Exports of xray crystallography-based strong encryption methods are prohibited. May cause the condition known as "hot-dog fingers". If your code sustains a slashdotting of longer than four hours after attending the code4lib 2006 conference, see your doctor immediately.

Carpooling

If you're driving to Corvallis for the conference and you'll have leftover space in your vehicle, please consider adding your name, email, point of origin (presumably Portland or Eugene airport), number of empty seats, and estimated time of departure to and from Corvallis below.

This will make it easier for financially constrained individuals like myself to score a cheap ride. ;)

Vote for the Code4lib 2006 presentations!

Please log in to participate in voting!

You may choose up to 11 proposals.

The 11 proposals with the most votes win. In case of a tie, we will have a "run off" election tomorrow, January 10th at 5PM - 11PM EST.

I will be deleting all votes cast before 5PM EST unless you specifically tell me that you have to vote early. So, be sure to tell me. Seriously. Send an email to ross.singer@library.gatech.edu.

Happy voting!

User profile info available to other (registered) users?

I would find it helpful if usernames on the www.code4lib.org website were hyperlinked to a profile for that user. I'm thinking in terms of the content available in the "view" and "contact" tabs of the user account. Naturally, the "edit" and probably the "track" tabs should either be disabled or better yet, not show up at all. This access might be restricted to other registered users... or not. I realize... that this brings up privacy issues, so availability of a person's user profile information should probably be an account option.

Breakout session ideas

People interested in the same project/problem can hang out in a space together for 60-90 minute blocks. Somebody near to the project/problem can coordinate discussion, set up hackers, tackle a challenge session topic, etc. Larger groups will get separate space, smaller groups can just spread out in the larger conference room space.

If you have an idea for a breakout topic, you can add it here. (See below the fold for the current list of suggestions.)

SUGGESTIONS:

one more week for proposals

The deadline for proposing a talk has been extended one week to Jan. 9. We've already got several very cool proposals but more is better, and there's plenty of room for spillover in the lightning sessions and breakouts.

To submit, read this first and then follow these instructions. Especially the 75-words-max part.

code4lib card

If you have a blog please consider adding a playing card to your site:

  • http://www.code4lib.org/cards/code4lib1.png
  • http://www.code4lib.org/cards/code4lib2.png

You can use the following HTML:

<a href="http://code4lib.org/">
<img src="http://code4lib.org/cards/code4lib1.png" 
  border="0" 
  alt="code4lib" 
  title="code4lib"/>
</a>

Feel free to use the images directly from code4lib.org if you don't want to go through the effort of grabbing them. This will allow us to secretly discover your site by trawling our logs.

Having the playing card can let people know about code4lib.org who don't know about it already. For examples of how to use them check out roy or dchud.
