Participating at the Inetbib 2008 conference in Würzburg I am pleased to see that web 2.0 usage among German librarians finally has reached the critical mass. I’d guess that we are more or less 18 month behind the situation of the vital US „library 2.0“ scene. With Inetbib 2008 we finally have a larger general library conference with open wifi and participants blogging (technorati, google blogsearch), twittering, flickring and social-networking the event (or just reading email if the speaker bores ;-). I hope that soon no more library colleauge will think that „all this internet services“ are a waste of time but usefull tools to better recognize developements, ideas, and events – even outside the German biblio-blogosphere (for instance here). The next event will be BibCamp, a Library 2.0 BarCamp at March May 16th/17th in in Potsdam and Berlin.
