hello - I wanted to encourage folks to submit proposals for our Spring Forum, late April in Minneapolis! I already know of several interesting papers that will be there, so I think it will be a great mix, and a good meeting. details are at http://diglib.org/forums/spring2008/ . I am also pleased to share that our two Monday afternoon keynotes will be: david rumsey, digital cartographer, describing new work in Google Earth and Second Life that will only be unveiled for the first time in March, and joel selanikio, founder of datadyne, a company that has created an opensource framework for data collection using PDAs and cellphones in the third world; he will also talk about new delivery services. you can watch a UN sponsored interviewed with joel at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4SsENpkbXg thanks!
