It was great seeing the majority of you that were on my "wish to meet' list! I felt somewhat compelled to stalk, errr, I mean seek you out! Did others feel the same?

What did you think about the Crowdvine site? Did you read the blog? Did you subscri... [read more]

Eric Schnell: Thanks for the heads up, Dale. I turned moderated membership on and deleted a few profiles. Need to put that on the checklist for next year!

Cynthia Kahn posted ABC's Lost

The 2-hour season finale of Lost will air during the MLA '10 conference. It is scheduled for May 23rd. Does anyone else watch Lost? Any interest in watching the finale as a group? Cynthia

Liz Fine: On second thought, now that I've checked in I don't think my room is a great place for a bunch of people to watch. Any other ideas?
Cynthia Kahn: If you want to watch LOST with a group, come to the bar at the conference hotel. They have agreed to show it.

Does anyone know exactly who the political satire group is at the closing event. Is it by any chance the Capitol Steps?

Hi, Michele,
There are some very creative, innovative folks at the UHN who are developing iPhone apps for various medical/patient purposes. We don't have any 'available' at this time, though.
Happy to meet... just not sure when! The program is so incredibly full. When is your poster session?

Michele Malloy left a note for Marina Englesakis

Marina! Is your university health network currently supporting any medical apps for the iPhone? My colleague C. Scott Dorris & I have a poster at MLA regarding library support for a required iPhone/iPod touch program at our med school... we'd love to talk with you.

Eric Schnell posted Wireless at Conference

Unfortunately the only way to get wireless in the conference area of the hotel is to have an air card. There will be the standard Internet café with hardwired computers, but for wireless access MLA has arranged a deal with Event Radio Rentals for discounted prices on card rental for MLA members. For the details, visit http://npc.mlanet.org/mla10/?p=193

Julia Shaw-Kokot: Thanks, Sarah! Appreciate your efforts!
Sarah McCord: I heard back from the hotel. According to the Assistant Director of Events for the Hilton Washinton, they have antennas in the building for Verizon, AT&T and Nextel, and all three networks should have similar coverage. I asked if they had received an... [read more]
Julia Shaw-Kokot: Great! Thanks for the quick follow-up, and I will test out the AT&T. You have just saved several trees!
