Back to business (or should that be research?)

It’s hard to believe that it’s already January 8th. The holidays went by very quickly, even though Wellington has had its coldest December since records began.

I didn’t just laze around, though. I did manage to fit in one more interview and finished transcribing two others. I have at least one more interview to do later this week, and there are still a few email interviews in various stages of completion. I am starting to wonder if some of my email messages have fallen into a trench somewhere in the Southern Cross cable (or more likely fallen into a spam trap somewhere), and I’ll be sending out follow up messages later this week.

To pick up where I left off interviewing myself, the next question is about my involvement with open source projects. I’m not directly involved with any library OSS projects, except as an observer/lurker. I’ve written the odd article and given a few presentations featuring case studies of various projects, so the best term to describe me is probably a ’supporter’. I do use some open source software (like this blog) and have set up the LIANZA IT-SIG wiki, which uses the PmWiki engine. I’m currently creating some content for the ‘Five Weeks to a Social Library’ course being organised by a group of North American library bloggers. My role has been to organise an interview between my husband and Patrick Michaud, that will be published as a podcast. They did the interview in late October, and now I need to to a bit of editing before submitting it to the course site. I’m planning on using Audacity (another open source project) for that.
