open access week

York University Libraries Open Access Week 2012 - blogvsbook

Yesterday, York University Libraries held a debate in the Scott Library entitled, "Be it resolved the blog replace the book?" The debate turned out pretty awesome, and somehow the team arguing for the book won!? (Some might say it was because of @adr's compelling closing statements.)  Along with livestreaming the debate on ustream, I pulled together (a special thanks to Ed Summers, and his very permissive licensing) a little node.js application to display a "twitterfall" of the hashtag for the event.
