Doc Martens asked me to pinch hit at the Oklahoma Library Association annual convention this past Wednesday. The topic of the panel discussion was open source software, i.e. OSS. I was the clean-up batter, and my mission was to summarize my conversion from an open source technophobe to an open source/open access evangelist.
Although simple, you can check out my powerpoint visual aid–“My Journey to Blogdom”–on slideshare.
In short, I took conference attendees on a sentimental journey of my OSS awakening… from blogging on WordPress to creating a PBWiki to designing an open access journal with the PKP OJS system to utilizing sites like slideshare, flickr, and the like.
