There’s been quite a lot of talk on Twitter about this year’s New Professionals Conference (hashtag #npc2010). It’s great to see the increase in use of Twitter from last year when I think there was only me and a couple of others using a hashtag I’d made up!

I’m hoping to develop further Twitter support including a list of delegates (more on this later). I’m a bit late in organising it this year but thankfully the conference is on a non-working day so I should hopefully be able to attend, I’m just trying to get this confirmed at the moment.

For anyone else who is wondering about attending but hasn’t booked their place yet, I recently heard about a great competition being organised by CILIPs Membership Support Unit, and the prize is an all expenses paid place at the New Professionals Conference. You can see more details on the competition web page, but the basic idea is to submit a competition entry in any form (essay, video, art, whatever!) which answers the following question:

What would the world be like if information was unmanaged?

I’m looking forward to seeing the entries to this, please do enter the competition especially if you’re keen to attend the New Professionals Conference!

Hope to see some of you there on 5th July. 🙂
