Opening Keynote: "What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been"
The last twenty years have seen incredible changes in libraries, society, and ourselves. Where were we in 1993 and how did we get where we are today? What were our successes, our failures, our laughably lame attempts to make progress? You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to punch your neighbor or throw things at the speaker. Try to behave yourself as we take a rollicking look back at where we’ve come from and discover how on earth we made it this far alive.
