Thanks to Douglas and the rest of the Carolina Open Source Initiative for putting on a great Software Freedom Day celebration at the University of North Carolina. There was a good bit of traffic through the event. We had plenty of people stop by our table.
I enjoyed Pam Sessoms’ presentation on using Pidgin (libpurple) and Jabber (XMPP) to allow multiple librarians to seamlessly answer questions from library patrons. There is also a feature that allows evening (after hours) questions to be routed between librarians at Duke and NCSU. I am a sucker for using off-the-shelf components to solve real problems.
Remnants of Hurricane Humberto made getting out of North Carolina harder than we thought.
