That’s me. Pure vanity in this post so be warned.

I’ll be in Manhattan, Kansas next week as the University Distinguished Lecturer at Kansas State University and speaking about “Keeping It Free from Code to Content” an appropriate topic for ibiblio’s 15th year. Reprising my topic from my 2001 Communications of the ACM paper I say and will say that I “advocate[s] for open source[s], saying that libraries and collections must be open, must be collaborative and must be loud.”

I should not be confused with Paul Jones, fallen mayor of Ravenna Ohio for whom a building at KSU (Kent State not Kansas State) was recently unnamed. NO NO Different KSU and a very different Paul Jones.
