This talk included a roundup of the biggest tech trends of 2011 that will define mobile and social technology going into 2012. We focused on how libraries are impacted, what pressures libraries will be forced to react to, and how we can implement and adapt.
We spent a lot of time covering most current tech news and developments because so much happens so quickly and this week has been big for technology changes with wide impacts.
