About Steve

Hi everyone. I’m the lead library trainer at a large public library system in the Pacific Northwest, a teacher of social web literacy since 2006, an advocate for integrating social software and participation into the dialog with our public, and a voracious reader. I hope I can marshal all those hats into an interesting blog so that LibraryStream can contribute to the discussion about social software, training matters, and library issues in general. I’ll probably post book reviews and attempt humor from time to time, too.

Why call it “Library Stream”? It has to do with the flow of ideas. I suppose there’s a kinship to Flickr’s “photostream” and technology’s “streaming” audio & video, too. But there’s one more thought the “Library Stream” name conjures up for me. It’s the idea that change has become so common in the modern library that — like a stream — you’ll never set foot in the same library twice. Beyond this blog, you might also find me at Flickr, Facebook, Mostly NF, Ning, on a bike ride, a hike, behind a camera, or with my nose in a book. See you around!

    Heya Steve, Congrats with this cool initiative. I adapted 23Things in Dutch and the librarians here love these kind of learning methods.
    I will keep an eye on your “things”!

    Hi Steve
    love what you’ve done with the Learn More tutorials – (see blog entry http://blog.core-ed.net/derek/2008/01/social_networking_tutorials.html) Would like to be able to talk to you about creating a similar set of “Meaning” statements as they might apply to classroom teachers.

[…] Steve Campion kitalált egy jó játékot tiniknek, amit az őszi könyvtári heteken be is vetek majd: egy szám szövegét beillesztve egy szófelhő-generátorba, az eredményből ki kell találniuk a számot, az előadót s mindezt minél hamarabb. Ajánlott szófelhő-generátor: a Wordle. A Flickr oldalán készített is egy „Musical Tag Clouds set”-et 18 példával. […]
