Notes from the Editors and Publisher
Goodbye 2004, hello ’05. At the end of 2004, we look back at the year and take stock of where things are, how the year has passed and are thankful for Boxes and Arrows’ readers and community of authors and volunteers.
This year’s IA Summit, themed “Breaking New Ground,” seemed to have the right mix of new and returning folks, a nice variety of interesting and well-attended pre-conference workshops and several tracks of presentations to suit the IA of every flavor.
The second day of the IA Summit dawned with rain and storm clouds. But the weather cleared, the presentations were inspiring and by the end of the day, each of us returned back to our lives recharged and eager to build on what we had learned.
Spring is in the air and 400 +/- IAs are gathered together for networking, knowledge sharing, drinking, schmoozing, eating and drinking. It must be the annual ASIST IA Summit. Held in Portland, Oregon this year, the summit was well attended and seemed to be just what the doctor ordered. Check out the events from Friday night and Saturday, March 22.
Despite the beginning of a war and major roads shut down by war protesters, folks managed to gather from around the world to rub elbows with their own kind—just the thing for a conference with the theme “Making Connections”. Check out the events from Sunday, March 23.
To welcome in December and the holiday season, the staff at Boxes and Arrows has put together a list of their favorite books. These are the tried and true. The books we can’t live without or have learned great lessons from over the years.
The 2002 Summit in Baltimore has come and gone. Boxes and Arrows was in attendance covering the events, the social mixing and the controversies. Throughout the summit we made some new friends and took a lot of pictures. We have gathered our notes and images together in this highlights of the two day event.
