I live and work in the Buffalo/Niagara region and my greatest desire right now is to have a room with a view, mostly to myself. (UPDATE: found the view, now I need to build the room...) I guess I could be called a reluctant technologist. I use and understand the parts of technology I need, yet I am reluctant to fully embrace all aspects of it. For example, I was an early adopter of social media like myspace, facebook and twitter, yet could not bring myself to engage fully in putting my life out there for all to see (or shall I say spending my life putting it all out there?) I'm not sure if that classifies me as a dinosaur (or maybe a Luddite?) I believe the technology has valuable uses yet I believe balance and perspective is still necessary--the human interaction and engagement can never be replaced by technology. I'm interested in how users interact and engage with multimedia resources available to them and how changes in technology is changing how we do what we do. Mostly oral history focused today, working with Michael Frisch and Randforce. The best part of the job? interviewing. But mostly we deal with what you do after the recording--content management of audio and video data.
