Hi Phil,

I'm really glad they have asked for your input, but I have to admit, I think this whole thing is a bit crazy.

Librarians all over the place are just getting on with using Web 2. They are talking to each other all the time, exploring possibilities, exchanging ideas and collaborating without the need for a huge central discussion. Why do CILIP need this? Why can't they just get on with it?

I often find CILIP embarrassing. They are the Professional Body of Information Professionals and they can't even get the information basics right sometimes. Using Twitter or Facebook are becoming basics. A debate is not required. Some action is required, and has been a long time coming.

Thank you Phil for your involvement, for your blog posts which flagged up this issue to the masses and for your willingness to criticise CILIP when they need to hear harsh feedback.

I hope the Open Session goes well and that your talk is well received. Its about time someone said something sensible!
