Headed to DC for Super Secret Ninja Library Conference

I’m heading off to Washington DC for the Computers in Libraries conference. (Yeah–I guess it wasn’t that super secret after all. Also, no ninjas. That you can easily see, at least. Oh well. “Headed to DC for Library Conference” seemed so boring.) Yes–it’s true. All my talk about being a librarian isn’t just fluff. I actually go and do library stuff from time to time. (Now if I could just figure out a way to shill my books while I’m down there, then I’d really be cooking with gas.)

What does this mean for you? Well, I might be light on an internet presence for the next few days. (Or not–you never know, with conference internet. Last time I went to this conference, the connection was totally craptacular. Then again, it’s at a new hotel this year, so one can always hope.) I’m going laptop-free on this trip. Just bringing my trusty iPad and a bluetooth keyboard. (It helps that for writing, that’s pretty much all I need. It’s not like I’m going to have to be doing any massive Photoshopping while I’m away.)

In the meantime, I expect you all to get along just fine without me. No fighting, and nobody break the internet please. As long as it’s still standing when I get back, then everything’s A-OK.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a reminder. Just 778 more Twitter Followers and/or Vodnik Facebook Likes, and you’ll get to see me doing this:

The more I look at that, the more I’m thinking I went about this whole contest the wrong way. I should have said, “Unless I get 1000 likes/followers, I will post a video of me doing the Truffle Shuffle online.” It’s more of a threat than a promise, is what I’m seeing. Oh well–live and learn. 🙂
