Report from SLA in NYC (2)

:: We are in Day 3 of SLA in NYC. I presented as part of a panel on guerilla marketing of engineering libraries yesterday, along with four other speakers, and the panel was a success.

:: At the IEEE breakfast this morning, we learned a number of things, including: 1) IEL will be indexed by Google later this summer, and free abstracts to guests will also appear; 2) a subscription identifier will appear with each search result, indicating whether or not the institution subscribes to that part of the db; 3) IEL's peak time is usually around 4:00 AM CDT, with ~83,000 visitors.

:: During Stewart Brand's keynote speech this morning, he noted that the average lifespan of a web page is approximately 43 days.
