Well, I meant the tech side of libraries, and I guess I should have said archives and museums too. I'm interested in HOW people are doing cool things with data, or delivering services, and what tools they are using, etc. So, shorthand would "stuff you'd see at code4lib".
This went to a few lists, so I wanted to make a distinction that this is not focusing on teaching pedagogy, information literacy, acquisitions or similar other facets of library world, though it could be included if those are being done in a cool way with tech.
I was thinking this was going to be an evening pub meetup type thing, but most of the response thus far has been from people a little too far to come out for a night, so might have to morph into something more like a regional code4lib, which I'm also interested, but a little more hesitant to spearhead.
I'm fairly confident in my ability to make a reservation, show up at a bar/cafe, and talk about stuff. Less so about mini-conference organizing.

Can you define 'digital library' in this context?
