We've Been Scobleized!

I stopped by our Prints and Photographs Division this afternoon to meet blogging legend Robert Scoble, partly because he was interviewing Helena Zinkham, the acting chief of P&P, about our Flickr project, but also to tell him how his book “Naked Conversations” has had an important impact on impelling the Library’s blog forward.  Before I knew it, he had turned his camera on me and beamed an interview live to the world via 3G.  (Shameless self-promotion alert.)

Robert is also working on a more in-depth piece on the Flickr project, which I’m eager to see.  It’s always great when the HD camera comes out!

While I’m at it, in recent days and weeks, there has been a lot of Web 2.0 momentum building here at the Library.  I’m confident that this will soon lead to new ways in which we will reaching out to user communities and making the Library’s yummy goodness even more widely known and accessible.

    Robert Scoble is simply a marvel to behold as far as his rate of adoption and use of new technologies goes.

    I am never quite sure how he has time to do it all, between Twitter (where he is one of the people with the most followers AND activity), FriendFeed (ditto, and he almost single-handedly has been popularizing it), and his own blog and Fast Company sites. Not to speak of all of the travel, conferences, and interviews.

    He truly is a new breed of “Web 2.0 Human”…

    Best
