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.
