    I am the owner and managing director of Information Automation Limited (IAL), a company that specialises in research, consultancy and training for the information profession. We are particularly interested in all forms of electronic information resources (e-journals, e-books, etc) and I teach a course in electronic publishing at the Department of Information Studies in Aberystwyth. Drilling down still further(!), my interests centre on the quality and evaluation of electronic information, and in the thinking that underpins activities in library and information science.

    Blogging for ... whom?

    I promised more when I returned from Online Information 2005, so the next few blogs are comments about the show...
    I note that Don Hawkins on the Information Today blog has encountered a few souls at the show who didn't know what a blog is; this was my experience too - although I have to add that not all of them came from my side of the Atlantic! I also note different approaches to blogging.
    There are a lot of important blogs over here, but I think the way they are used varies from States-side: we in the UK tend to the brief commentary while the US-blogs use a stream-of-consciousness approach, which - when all is said and done - offers readers a lot more information! I'm sure I can do outpourings-of-my-soul too, but I may need a bit of practice to get there; meanwhile readers will have to put up with my shorter, over-cerebral (well I like to think so!) snippets.
    For those of you looking for a good overview of Online Information 2005, I recommend the many postings on the Information Today blog - sit back and drink deep!
