60 Apps...

in 60 minutes.

Today I received the invitation to the Oklahoma ACRL Fall Conference in Tulsa November 2nd. The keynote speaker is "Joe Murphy, librarian, author and technology trend spotter extraordinaire." So, checking out his website at http://joemurphylibraryfuture.com/ -- lo and behold, 60 Apps in 60 Minutes. He presented this to Special Libraries Association in June 2011, but since his technology savvy is way ahead of mine, I knew it would be worth a look, even a year+ later.

Yes, I have a few of them for my iPhone. But I didn't know Google search had a voice component. Or that it will let me search using pictures from my phone camera (Google Goggles). Oh, and GoodReader has a PDF reflow, so I can finally read PDF on my iPhone... and take notes. Neato. This has been so worth looking at already.

Whew. Now I see the update from July this year: 60 Apps in 60 Minutes, Redux: The Next 60 Apps You Need to Know.


I think I'm going to need to go to Tulsa this year.
