SLA Conference Report - At the Exhibit Hall
There seems to be a common thread in my conversations with vendors in the exhibit area. Many are offering applications that require no IT support, mainly hosted solutions. This has been a trend for a while, but I'm encouraged to see even more such products out there.
Caspio is one hosted service that caught my eye. If you have a database that you want to post on your Intranet or web site, you upload the data, create a search form, and grab the code to embed in your pages. They host it all, and can also provide consulting services if you need help. I haven't played with it yet, but plan to.
By the way, Denver is a great conference town. Great shopping, restaurants, public transportation, and the weather has been perfect! Wish you were here!
Breaking news - You heard it here. Actually, you've heard it everywhere. Al Gore, the keynote speaker on Sunday, says he's not running for president. At least, not yet. I was hoping he'd announce right here at SLA. It would have put special libraries on the map! :-)
