Conversants :-) A Participatory Conversation

This is a GREAT idea for continuing your professional development FOR FREE and without any travel! Please read Jill Hurst-Wahl's post detailing this fascinating idea. She is part of the group that is organizing this global event. Here's an intro:

"We invite you to join the movement to create and share information through worldwide coordinated conversations. Library communities and organizations are uniquely poised to employ the latest collaborative resources; the conversations that result from these collaborations hold great promise for students and practitioners across the information professions. Sharing knowledge and expertise via these collaborative conversations as part of a united effort is both beneficial and necessary, so we invite you lend your voice and join us in this unique event. Become a Conversant!
This effort is spearheaded by R. David Lankes with support from the Information Institute at Syracuse University, librarians and library students."

The post has more details and here is a video explaining the idea. I will be following this closely:
