Official Bio:

Max Anderson earned his MLIS in 1999 from Florida State University. Shortly after graduating, he worked as a Public Access Computer Trainer for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, installing granted computer technology and training librarians in rural libraries across the country. While working with the Gates Foundation, Max became involved with the creation of what became WebJunction, an online portal for libraries. He serves as an advocate for WebJunction, in addition to teaching an informational course online about the portal. Since 2003, he has worked at SOLINET as an Educational Services Instructor. He writes and teaches classes on OCLC products and services, web design, application of social software to libraries, and general technology to librarians around the Southeast. Max is a well-known speaker, and has presented at various conferences, including Computers in Libraries, SOLINET Users Groups, and state library conferences. In 2007, he was invited to Australia and New Zealand by CAVAL to teach classes about social software in libraries. He recently published an article in the Georgia Library Quarterly on RFID in Libraries. Some of his interests include emerging technologies, web design, planning for library futures, cataloging, and advocacy and support for libraries.




I have not attended CIL since 2005.  I presented 2 sessions at that conference and it was a blast! Looking forward to this one as well.

If anyone wants to meet up during the conference, drop me a note!
