The SLA Centennial Conference kicked off yesterday in Washington, DC. The opening keynote address was given by General Colin Powell — an excellent speech! Unfortunately I was unable to get a digital photo of myself with General Powell. The conference will continue through Wednesday of this week. The closing General Session will be moderated by Judy Woodruff who will moderate a panel of thought leaders (Robyn Meredith, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and John Patrick) who will share their insights on the future of their fields and the outlook for both information and information professionals!
