      Reminder - workshop and dinner for taxonomists in Washington, DC on
      June 13.

      If you're interested in the workshop, register through SLA. See details

      If you're interested in dinner in DC with others who work in taxonomy
      and related fields, please let me know and we'll send you the details.
      The venue will be moderately priced, but chosen partly based on the size
      of the anticipated group.

      As part of the SLA Annual Conference in Washington, DC, there is an
      all-day workshop on taxonomy, meta-data and search on Saturday, June 13
      (described below). You can register for the workshop without attending
      the conference. There are some other sessions that you may find relevant
      as well. For information and registration see

      Also, anybody in the area interested in joining a group of people
      working in taxonomy and related topics for dinner on Saturday evening,
      June 13 is welcome. Just let me know if you are interested and we'll
      sort out details depending on how many respond.

      Saturday, 13 June 2009 8:00AM - 5:00PM
      Ticketed Event #275
      Price: US $349 member / US $500 non-member / US $175 student member
      Location: TBA

      Search*doesn*t work. A bold statement! Come learn why * share your
      experiences. How does taxonomy save search? What is the relationship
      between taxonomy and meta-data? How do you build and deploy them to save
      search? Taxonomy is now a *must have*, no longer a nice to have.
      Meta-data and particularly taxonomies (and variation, therein) have been
      openly embraced by nonbelievers and covertly co-opted by the naysayers.
      Learn why and how you can make the business case for your organization.
      Come armed with questions and real life challenges to stump the experts!
      Intermediate to advanced * fundamentals to more advanced topics are
      covered; attendees should have had exposure to the topic and be prepared
      to contribute real world challenges.

      Audiences: All attendees
