Join us for the second keynote talk with Don Norman.

"Why was I was asked to give a keynote: I know nothing about libraries.I suspect that is why I was asked.

In preparation, I have gathered together a group of graduate students to do ethnographic observation and design thinking. And I have asked my design colleagues from across the world for advice. (They have bombarded me with roughly 100 pages of ideas, some of which is even useful.) And I am carefully rereading Vernor Vinge's book "Rainbow's End," which prominently features UCSD's library (reading the digital version, of course). He talks of a time when books are all digitized by being chopped into little pieces, which are then blown into the air, photographed, and computer-stitched together as digital records.

Is this the future of libraries? I can hardly wait to hear what I will say."
