…while I’ve seen a lot of talk about mobile sites for libraries, I don’t see nearly as many actually implementing them. I think a lot of librarians are intimidated. But IUI’s code is actually so simple that I was able to automate its creation!

I’m probably the last ALA conference/meeting-goer to realize this, but the Boopsie app is awesome. I haven’t even left for Boston yet, but this app is already changing how I’ll do the meeting. It’s a simple interface offering a meeting schedule, upcoming sessions, a listing of exhibitors (including yours truly, #1402), Boston restaurants, Boston hotels, and an #alamw10 twitter stream. It almost replaces the Meeting Guide—my #totebag just got a little bit lighter.
