Lots of great content, especially in the Lucene, Solr, and Hadoop areas.

I wasn't sure I'd ever see the day that the UVa library would, as an institution, agree to open source Blacklight. But they did! [A dirty little secret is that the bulk of it, including a basic example MARC indexer, was open sourced last year during the preparation for the Solr code4lib preconference.]

I'm honored to be speaking at the upcoming OLA Super Conference 2008. I'm presenting "Collex: Collecting and exhibiting scholarly materials" (session #406, Thursday January 31, 10:40am) and " Blacklight: the University of Virginia's Catalog on Solr" (session #1203, Friday, February 1, 2:10pm). I'm looking forward to demonstrating these projects and sharing their latest news.

I gave a solr-ruby presentation at rubyconf this past weekend. My timing was off, didn't cover as much as I would have liked, and one of my demos flubbed and I punted on it (turns out all I did was forget to pass a command-line argument to the script *sigh*).
Here are the slides.

This self-marketing thing is hard. Thus far I've been blessed with word-of-mouth success for the reputation from the various open source communities in which I've participated. But it does take a little advertising so folks know what you're up to. With little fanfare, some friends of mine have put together an impressive lineup of courses and speakers, and a great venue, on several open source topics. I thought it was a good idea to have a longer course on Solr and Lucene, so I agreed to give it a shot.

I had the great pleasure of presenting at the Library of Congress recently. I'm honored to follow in some great footsteps, in the same series as recent and very related talks by Andrew Pace and Tim Spalding.
