I caught this fly dude strolling through the convention center. Unfortunately I had already accosted him by running at him full speed while shouting, “My man! Hey…Styles, wait…come back!” so I missed the rest of the relevant details.
Hopefully he’ll see this and let us know who he is. View high resolution

Here are some outfits I wore at ALA 2011 :)  I might look like a stylish bumblebee in a couple…..

Caught up with Andromeda at the Tweetup — she was able to still get a nice outfit together even though the airline caused her some luggage problems!

I saw Jack walk by while I was waiting for my Emerging Leaders teammate, Erik and thought I should bother him for a picture. Luckily, it turned out Erik knows Jack, so I got a photo in while they were talking :)

I’m Tasha Bergson-Michelson, Search Education Curriculum Fellow at Google.  I am a proud librarian of almost two decades, and a Boolean and electronic sleuthing geek, through-and-through. I tweet occasionally @researchwell and am looking forward to getting @advancedoperatr underway shortly.
Since I started my first library in Japan, I have always tended to overdress for work (of course, in certain circles around here wearing shoes is overdressing). For this conference, though, I am hoping meet people who I’ve only seen online—and people I’ve never met before—so I am going full-on Googly: jeans, Google t-shirt, and a blazer for warmth…and “formality.”
(I like to travel light, but my itchy fingers may yet win and pack some of my usual wear, for evenings.) View high resolution

I’m John Stevens, one of the Access & Information Librarians at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne, Vic, Australia. Like many people listed here recently, I’m also attending the ALA Annual 2011, and have had to contemplate humidity for the first time in a while. This is a sample of the kind of clothes I’ve chosen to bring to NOLA, considering this (the shirts ‘n socks are new, as I had to re-stock upon arrival because my checked-in bag ‘gone astray’ on the way from Australia… serves me right for stewing over my outfits so much, I guess).

This is how Dale McNeill, Director of Public Library Service at Queens Library will be packing for ALA 2011! Submission forwarded by Lauren Comito, who says, “[Dale] is one of the best dressed people in QL, and we all love the bowties.” Excellent! View high resolution
