I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone for their interest in my startup paper. It cracked 10,000 views in less than two weeks. I honestly thought I might hit 1,000 in a month, but it seems that this paper really resonated with many people. I received lots of email from librarians at different levels sharing their frustration with moving their organizations forward. This next decade is going to be a tough one, but we need leaders committed to progress.
My paper was intended to be a framework for conversation about organizational transformation. I’m not literarily saying you should operate like a startup. Most people got that, which is cool.
Anyway, thanks again for the interest and for sharing the document widely with your colleagues. A special thanks to the city of Seattle who downloaded this thing in droves. And France-- what happened between us? You use to be some of my most loyal readers.
FYI. The blog is taking a short hiatus as we push through the end of the semester here. I have a lot to share about my trip to Palo Alto. If anyone wants to sponsor a free webinar in May, I’d love to talk along the lines of: What Higher Ed Can Learn From Silicon Valley: an exploration into next gen learning environments. If anyone can volunteer the software let’s make it happen.
