I gave an Ignite-style presentation at the 2014 Confab Higher Ed conference. Not sure if I’ll ever do a timed, auto advancing style presentation again but it was super fun!
Description: Librarians are great at being exhaustively thorough – a trait that’s wonderful for all kinds of traditional library activities and services – but not so great for coming up with concise web content or link labels.

Using the classic “cheap, fast, good” decision triangle, I created my own version using short, true, and meaningful to help visually demonstrate the tradeoffs.
