Driving Our Own Destinies

Our broadcast-trained, data-driven investigative journalist, social media enthusiast, and Fortune 500 agency digital/content strategist has won a stack of awards for his branded content work in editorial and digital. He is passionate about libraries and how they impact their communities. Howley’s certain that libraries aren’t telling their stories compellingly enough because no one understands how stories spread and sustain—and how data informs story and story informs data. Come and hear his strategies and suggestions for how libraries can truly drive their community’s destiny!

Presenter Brendan Howley, Chief Strategy Officer & Lead Content Designer, Yup!

Is Technology Changing Our Brains?

“For nearly 20 years I had read between 200 and 300 pages a day. There was nothing I’d choose over reading. Nothing. In 2008 I enrolled in a distance program to earn my MLS degree. I spent more time online that year than probably in all my other years combined. When I finished my degree, I found that my reading—pleasure reading—felt more difficult. I couldn’t focus. It felt like more work. As I began to read books like Nicholas Carr’s The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains—I realized that it WAS more work than it used to be.” Hear our popular Internet Librarian 2013 keynote speaker, Josh Hanagarne, discuss how our brains have changed with the internet, whether we should be concerned about the changes, and, if so, what can be done, if anything.

Presenter Josh Hanagarne, Salt Lake City Public Library, & Author, The World’s Strongest Librarian, Salt Lake City Public Library
