Talking Tech in Beantown

Previous Trivia Answer: Hydrogen, helium, and lithium. (Sounds like an explosive, light, mellow experience.)

Today’s Trivia Question: Which amendment to the US Constitution allowed for a federal income tax?

I’ve neglected to mention in the past couple of postings what I am doing in Boston. I am attending the Campus Technology 2006 conference, which used to be known as the Syllabus conference. After sitting back, taking notes, and occasionally asking questions for a couple of days, I will be part of a panel discussion tomorrow morning that will focus on digital asset management and various software tools available for digital archiving.

Scott Siddall, from Denison University, is moderating the panel and graciously asked me to participate, so that I can explain how we are using Fedora, an open source digital asset management system, with the Crossroads to Freedom project currently underway at Rhodes College. James Shulman, the Executive Director of ARTstor, and Greg Zick, the President of DiMeMa, Inc., the maker of the CONTENTdm digital collection management software, are also part of the panel.

I’ve got a lot to say on this subject. I hope I don’t embarrass myself.
