Ignite, redux

In February I spoke at Ignite London 4 about 'Why Libraries are Great'. Richard Johnson (@chichard41) has been working on the videos from the event, and has just released the video of my talk, hurrah!  So here it is:

Why Libraries Are Great - by Katie Birkwood from chichard41 on Vimeo.

And for those who haven't already seen them, here are the stand-alone versions of my slides:
Some other talks I enjoyed were Charlotte Young on Art Bollocks, Andrew Betts on Standards, Maxwell J. Roberts on Tube Maps, and Paul Clarke on the Pythagorean Comma.


  1. So you like it then? Thank you. I was thinking the whole time, 'what would thewikiman say?'.

  2. Finally watched the video rather than just the slides - yay! You were ace. And I also loved the catalogue cards - thought at first you'd broken out the index cards ;)
