DAS Conference, New Zealand

DAS Conference

The first speaker at the DAS Conference was Ian Witten (who literally wrote the book on Data Mining). He spoke on the creation and access of digital libraries in developing countries. During his talk he said something that rings true with our mission at Exbiblio:

"If the book would have been invented after the computer, it would have been hailed as a great advance."

I am going to get a chance to speak about Exbiblio for 3 minutes on Thursday and I'm thinking of starting with Ian's quote. After my 3 minutes of fame (saving the other 12 for later), I'll set up a couple laptops to show off our ideas. The Exbiblio team built a cool demo showing how you can scan a few words from a book using a handheld scanner and then you can see the digital version of the page along with dynamically generated links and reference information.

Speaking of Exbiblio. We posted a new and improved web site last week. Check it out and send me your comments.
